International schools in Boston are ideal for expat families as they offer curricula of foreign countries such as France, Germany and the UK. The language of instruction at these schools typically corresponds with its curriculum. In some cases, teaching is bilingual.
Expat children generally feel more at home in international schools among peers who can identify with relocating to a new country. Attending a school with the same curriculum as the family's country of origin can ease the transition and also make for a smooth transition back should the family return.
While Boston has just a few international schools, expat parents will find that the high quality makes up for the relatively small selection.
