Summary: If you're a newcomer in Kyrgyzstan and enrolling your children in school in Kyrgyzstan, here's how:

Enrolling your child in a public school in Kyrgyzstan can be a complex process, especially for expats who are unfamiliar with the local education system and language. It requires a certain amount of paperwork and understanding of the local regulations. The process involves obtaining the necessary documents, finding a suitable school, and completing the registration process. This guide aims to simplify the process by providing a step-by-step guide to help you navigate through the enrollment process.

  1. Obtain the necessary documents: Before you can enroll your child in a public school in Kyrgyzstan, you will need to have certain documents ready. These include your child's birth certificate, your passport, and proof of your residency in Kyrgyzstan. If your child has previously attended school, you will also need to provide their school records.
  2. Find a suitable school: The next step is to find a suitable school for your child. You can do this by researching online, asking for recommendations from other expats, or visiting schools in person. Keep in mind that the quality of education can vary greatly from one school to another, so it's important to choose a school that best fits your child's needs and abilities.
  3. Visit the school: Once you have found a school that you are interested in, the next step is to visit the school in person. This will give you a chance to meet with the school administrators, tour the facilities, and get a feel for the school environment. It's also a good opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the school's curriculum, teaching methods, and policies.
  4. Complete the registration process: After you have chosen a school, the next step is to complete the registration process. This typically involves filling out a registration form and submitting it along with the necessary documents. You may also need to pay a registration fee. The school will then review your application and let you know if your child has been accepted.
  5. Prepare your child for school: Once your child has been accepted, the final step is to prepare them for school. This may involve buying school supplies, arranging transportation, and helping your child adjust to their new school environment. It's also a good idea to talk to your child about what to expect and to reassure them that they will be okay.
