A couple of decades ago, the chances of finding an international school around us were sporadic. However, the trend has changed. From being a sector that serves the expatriate population to becoming a local’s favourite, the international school market has grown tremendously. Today, most major cities have at least one good international school, if not several. After all, there are now more than 11,000 international schools across the globe.
Catering to a healthy mixture of children from different nations, international schools have a reputation for preparing students well for English-speaking higher education opportunities worldwide. The International Baccalaureate (IB) program was first created to serve as a framework for other international schools to follow. Today, several organisations offer accreditation to schools, such as Advanced Placement, Cambridge IGCSE, the Council of International Schools, the International Primary Curriculum, and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
International Schools are very popular in Europe. As a relatively small continent with astounding natural, historical, artistic and cultural diversity, Europe hosts some of the finest international schools across the world. In this issue, we have identified ‘10 Must-Watch International Schools in Europe – 2022’ that offer learners a depth of cultural heritage and diversity with a truly global outlook. On the cover, we feature Copperfield International School, which is built upon three central pillars: academic programmes, co-curricular offerings, and students’ well-being system.
