The standard of Spanish education is high and expats will have a variety of options when it comes to finding a school for their child. There are public, private, semi-private and international schools in the country. These institutions range from Catholic to secular, and co-educational to single-gendered.
Education is compulsory in Spain for children between the ages of six and 16, and the school year typically runs from mid-September to the end of June.
Generally, expats who only plan on staying for a short time, or those with older children, opt for an international school in Spain.
