Help in choosing a school for your child
If you have already done the first step on the way to the wonderful Spain and planning to buy a property or rent an apartment for rent, ie, plan to live for some time or permanently in Spain and you have school-age children, it certainly will be a question of choosing a school, although many of the first choice is a school, and then only are searching for accommodation in the area. After all, we all want our children to get a decent, quality education, while it would be nice to live is not far from the school. Personally, we have to do: choose a school (where training in English and Spanish), and then we have was given to buy a beautiful house on the Costa Blanca, within our budget, and 5 minutes from the school!
On the Costa Blanca is home to more than 50% of the foreign population. Perhaps this explains the abundance of secondary schools, both public and international. In Spain, your child can start learning at school from 3 years in any of the schools (public or private), no matter how he lives: temporarily or permanently in Spain. State schooling free education, it should be noted very friendly to the children from the school staff and a comfortable psychological climate in the school community in general. Children quickly adapt to the new environment.
Very popular on the Costa Blanca in the indigenous population and foreigners are international schools, here are some of them:
