We are a Belgian family, currently living in France. We will move to Ottawa in the summer of 2021.

Our 3 boys are enrolled in the International School of Toulouse (IGCSE and IB curriculum). 

We would like to know if there are schools in Ottawa, apart from the international schools, that also follow the IGCSE and IB curriculum? 

Thanks :-)

Hi Ann,

All the best with the move.

There are many schooling options in Ottawa, including a handful of schools that offer the IB curriculum and IGCSE, although are more limited. Here are a few schools: Colonel By Secondary School, Merivale High School, Elmwood School, Ashbury College and Blyth Academy.

Have you considered looking at bilingual schools that offer courses both in English and French?

For more information check out our page on schools in Ottawa.

Warm regards,
