For families with children, priority one upon accepting an international assignment is to insure the availability of adequate schooling. Most parents bringing a child along on an international assignment prefer to find a school that matches the curriculum the child is familiar with from their home country, especially if they plan to return home after the assignment.
The limited options for international schooling in Erbil can sometimes make this extremely difficult. As Erbil grows and is built up, these options will expand and there will be more opportunities in a variety of different schools. At the moment, however, there are only three schools to choose from.
American International School – Kurdistan
The International School of Choueifat – Erbil
British International School in Kurdistan
