International schools in Cape Town are a popular choice for expat parents. Standards are generally high, and international schools are often staffed by expat teachers experienced in delivering the core curriculum of their home system. Consistency, continuity and a sense of familiarity at school can be immeasurably helpful for children adjusting to such a major move.

A further advantage is an opportunity for expat children to form connections with children from diverse countries and backgrounds who nevertheless share the complex experience of being an expat child. Expat parents, too, can benefit from connecting with fellow expats in the school's community.
