A Good Education For Children Of Expatriates

The global world has led to the birth of new family models, with parents of different nationalities and children born in other countries. The work of parents in multinational institutions and organizations means that more and more children have to study outside their countries of origin and even have to change countries several times during their school life.

In order to avoid the continuous changes of educational curriculum depending on the country, the best option to give stability to our children is the International Baccalaureate (IB) It is an educational system coordinated globally by Ibo.org, an educational foundation that offers nearly 6,000 programs in more than 4,500 schools worldwide.

The main objective of the International Baccalaureate is to form a supportive, informed, critical youth, emphasizing above all the context: the framework of mutual understanding and intercultural respect.

Being aware of the intercultural reality, the program allows children to enjoy quality education, in harmony with the methodologies and values of other schools involved with the International Baccalaureate. Thanks to this, children and young people can maintain continuity in their education, regardless of the country where they began their studies and the cities they have visited.

The International Baccalaureate offers programs in both English, Spanish and other languages to encourage the integration of our children into the society. In addition, both the subjects and their content seek the best adaptation to multicultural environments in different countries, while developing socially, emotionally and academically.

In addition to the curriculum, it is also important to pay attention to the regime and the chosen facilities. A good option for our children to soak up the local culture and make the most of their stay in the country is to attend a boarding school. The best known in the world are in Switzerland and the United Kingdom, but the boarding schools in Spain are beginning to stand out for offering similar quality at more affordable prices.

Living in a boarding school that offers our children the possibility of studying the International Baccalaureate is a reality in many countries such as Spain. The experience we will offer our children will be the most enriching. In addition to allowing them to continue with the same curriculum, in an international school they will be able to learn languages, as well as develop communication and relationship skills.

In addition, living in a boarding school will give us much more peace of mind about the safety and security of our children. The residence hall is located inside the school so they will not have to move for off-campus activities. In addition to favoring our children, who will enjoy a large and well-equipped space, we will also be calmer as the school guarantees us maximum security and control.
