What are the schools in Latvia like?

"If You are looking for safe environment for Your child to grow and to learn, open minded teachers, internationally approved curriculum. This preschool is for You," remarked another parent with kids at Six Senses International Preschool in Me┼żaparks, Riga.

"It's a lovely school -- fantastic facility, good teachers, great programs. ISR follows the Success-for-All phonics program, which is wonderful; our daughter's reading skills grew by leaps and bounds within weeks of starting the program, and halfway through her Kindergarten year she was simply reading, everything and anything. It's an IB PYP school, accredited through both the Council of International Schools and the Latvian Ministry of Education," explained one expat living in Kipsala, Latvia.

"The school has a great director that keeps pushing education standards. Recently the school introduced a new English language programme which worked great for my son who had some problems with English. They are committed to grow the school into higher grades as there is a lot of kids in Grades 3-6. In my view, you'll make a good choice if you enroll your kids there," said another parent with children at International School of Riga in Riga.

"ISL is the only school that I would enroll my children at. ISL is really a safe, caring school," commented one expat when asked about International School of Latvia in Jurmala.

"The school offers a good quality native French language education and will benefit a child from every nation. It also gives a good insight into French culture and a head start in mastering of the language to those who are not native French speakers," explained one expat in iga, Latvia with kids at French School.

"Do not even consider any other school than ISL. It is a world class school with the scores to prove it," wrote an expat living in Jurmala with children attending International School of Latvia.
