Madrid is one of the most underrated destinations for expats, until they live there. Then, it tops the ranks of their preferred places to live and work.
Madrid is a charming city in the center of Spain with an intensive cultural program; from its amazing museums to the newest theatre shows and concerts.
Madrid also combines neighborhoods of old narrow streets full of history and beautiful buildings, churches and palaces, with modern and functional buildings and office facilities. Above all, Madrid must be lived. Its taverns, its dinning experiences, its people, its flavors… you will always feel welcome in Madrid.
There are international schools in Madrid that offer the most popular curricula, such as the British Curriculum, the International Baccalaureate Curriculum or the American, French or German Curriculum. Spanish Language is usually offered as part of the Curriculum. The international schools in Madrid cover all ages and grades, from Early Childhood to High School, and are located all around the city. Given that Madrid is a big city with a lot of traffic, you should consider the distance from your home to the International School when choosing it, to avoid an excessive commute time.
International education is becoming very popular among Spaniards and many International Schools have a predominant number of Spanish students. However, the international schools on offer in Madrid are not extraordinary and you might not get what you are looking for.
