Schooling for children while abroad

Good evening. I’m looking to go to Argentina for a number of months with my children. They are English speaking USA citizens. What would you say would be the CHEAPEST way to keep my children educated while abroad? One child is 14 and the other 7. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My ideas are as follows:

1. Find and accredited online course.
2. Find a local English speaking school for expat children in Argentina
3. Find a cheap, English speaking tutor while abroad.

Hello,

I spoke to a teacher friend of mine (she is in BsAs) last night. It will not be possible to enrol your children in a public school in Argentina without a DNI or with a Precaria (Document to say that you have started with the process to obtain permanent residency in Argentina.) Reason being that the school takes responsibility for the children and pay an insurance should something happen to the child for example getting hurt on the playground.

Private schools are similar but a little bit more flexible. What she said was it is not impossible, depending on how much you want to pay.

I am not sure what your circumstances are but maybe it would be better to find a tutor for the months that you will be in Argentina. I have no idea of costs.

Kind regards
Nelieta

We lived in Buenos Aires in 2006. Our 15-year-old daughter went to a private bilingual English/Spanish school. She was not fluent but had 2 1/2 years Spanish previous to our move. Within 4 months she was rocking the language. The exchange rate at that time was very attractive, essentially everything cost about 1/3 what is would in the states. The school was affordable. Prior to our move I researched over and over and thought I would have to pay high tuition, but these were the online-available schools that cater to diplomate children, I think. Once on the ground I think you will find options. I never heard of the restrictions referenced about not having a DNI, we didn't. Most people with any means choose a private school. This school also introduced us to a nearby tutor facility that got her up to speed.

When we hit the ground and started looking for an apartment the guy showing us around clued us in on a certain school, later I found them in abundance. I'd definitely recommend a bi-lingual, facilitates learning the language and goes both ways for the kids.

Another thought: The school year begins in March. You might find it difficult if you're not committing to the whole year. Classes can fill up.
