Hi,

We may be moving to Philadelphia (North).  With two children currently in a British International School in Brussels.

Is there anything similar?

Many thanks for any guidance.

Hi Kerry,

Unfortunately there are no schools offering the British curriculum in Philadelphia, although there are a few public schools offering the International Baccalaureate. More info: Education and Schools in Philadelphia.

There are, however, a few British schools in the neighbouring state of New York, although this is rather a long commute to make daily. How old are your children? Some international schools in NYC may offer boarding as an option. Here is a list of some of the most prominent international schools in NYC. We also have a comprehensive PDF guide to schooling in NYC, downloadable free of charge, which may be useful should you decide to pursue this avenue.

Best of luck with the move.
