When we asked about the schools in South Africa, they said...

"The Cambridge qualifications are very flexible and give the students a lot of opportunities for study abroad. A fairly traditional school w.r.t. uniforms (blazers and straw boaters)and manners etc. Academic standards are quite high and they expect a lot from the kids.(not a bad thing) A super atmosphere around the school, the kids are happy," said one parent with children at CHARTER COLLEGE INTERNATIONAL in Johannesburg.

"The International School of South Africa (ISSA) is one of the best international schools in South Africa. Located in Johannesburg, ISSA offers a comprehensive curriculum that is based on the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. The school provides a challenging and stimulating learning environment for students from all over the world.

FSJ offers a bilingual education in French and English, and is accredited by the French Ministry of Education.
