When we asked about the schools in UK, they said...

"Of course, a personal visit to the school would be in the best interest of any family. Be up front with any concerns you may have about your child. As with all the private schools we interviewed, TASIS offers virtually no special needs programs for kids beyond mild ADD & Dsylexia. Until the corporations realize that their employees face a tremendous hardship in this area and push for these private schools to add special needs to their curriculum, unfortunately, nothing will change. However, TASIS has been very supportive by providing textbooks, counseling and academic guidance to our family which deals with special needs issues," said one parent with children at The American School In England in Thorpe.

"Ackworth School is one of the most renowned independent international schools in England. Located in rural West Yorkshire, Ackworth provides teaching of an international curriculum that follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework. It focuses on developing each student's individual talents and abilities while emphasizing the importance of cooperation and understanding between all cultures. Additionally, Ackworth offers extra curricular activities such as chess, debating, performing arts, and community service. The French lycee Charles de Gaulle is also a top international school located in South Kensington. It offers bilingual teaching in French and English within a curriculum based on the French curriculum, the National Education and the International Baccalaureate. Students between the ages of 3 and 18 benefit from a rigorous and diverse educational program, including music, arts, sports, and literature. The International School of London is another outstanding international school in England.
