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

"The British School of Bogotá is widely regarded as one of the best international and bilingual schools in Colombia. Located in the World Trade Center complex in Chapinero, the school boasts a world-class curriculum and a student-centric approach to teaching. Founded in 2008, it is part of the International Schools Association of Colombia and provides students with a comprehensive bilingual and bicultural education. Another highly regarded international and bilingual school in Colombia is the Colegio Bilingüe Internacional de Cali. This private school, founded in 1998, is a leader in education in the region, offering programs that combine traditional Colombian education with international methodology and standards. The South American International School (SAIS) in Bogotá is another top-choice for international families in Colombia. Founded in 2012, the school has become a leader in contemporary instruction, offering innovative and challenging programs that help children explore and flourish. Finally, the Kites International School in Medellín is an excellent choice for families seeking a bilingual education for their children. The school is based upon a strong foundation of teaching and learning, complemented by a focus on social-emotional development and experiential learning," commented one expat when asked about in Colombia.

"Your child would be in good hands at this school. No specific advice. There's not a strong Spanish as a second language program at all though, so this would have to be arranged. Most classes are in English although at the HS level there are several teachers who teach in Spanish," explained one expat in Cali, Colombia with kids at Colegio Bolivar.
