What parents should look for from a great international school

It's important to know exactly what to look for when choosing an international school for your child. A truly great school is a combination of factors including but not limited to its teachers, learning environments, opportunities for personal development, and the academic outcomes and university destinations for students.

A 35 year veteran of British and international schools around the world, Regional Managing Director for Nord Anglia Education schools across Southeast and the Middle East since 2015, and a father of three, Shaun Williams explains what characteristics parents should look for when seeking the best international school for their child.

Whether your family is looking for an international school in a country like Cambodia or Myanmar, where there are relatively few choices, or in Singapore or Dubai, where there are many, the challenge is to identify those which really do offer an outstanding education. In this short video, Shaun Williams draws on his professional and personal experience to give parents an insight into what they should look for and the questions they should ask.

From the sense of purpose on display amongst the teachers, students and staff in an international school community, to the opportunities in- and -out of the classroom which add genuine value to the education of each child, to the investment the school make in the professional development of its teachers, Shaun objectively explains what should be on every parents’ wish-list.
