There are many international schools in Moscow. Some international schools uphold the teaching language and national curriculum of their respective countries, including America, England, France, Germany and India. Other international schools teach the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. Generally, all offer some form of Russian language instruction and are open to both international and local students.

For expat children, international schools often provide the best options with the highest quality of education in Moscow and internationally recognised school-leaving certificates. They often ease the transition of moving abroad.

International schools offer expat children in Moscow an opportunity to meet classmates experiencing similar situations and make friends. Meanwhile, they may be able to continue a familiar curriculum in their mother tongue.

There is a high demand for international schools, so expat parents are advised to contact the schools directly for more information and options for early applications.

Here is a list of international school options in Moscow.
