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

"The British International School Moscow is one of the best international schools in Russia. It is a co-educational school that offers a British-style education to students from over 50 countries. The school provides a comprehensive curriculum that includes English, Maths, Science, Humanities, and the Arts. The school also offers a range of extra-curricular activities, such as sports, music, and drama. The International School of Moscow is another excellent international school in Russia. It is a co-educational school that offers a comprehensive curriculum based on the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. The school also offers a range of extra-curricular activities, such as sports, music, and drama. The Anglo-American School of Moscow is a bilingual school that offers an American-style education to students from over 50 countries. The school provides a comprehensive curriculum that includes English, Maths, Science, Humanities, and the Arts. The school also offers a range of extra-curricular activities, such as sports, music, and drama. The International School of St. Petersburg is a bilingual school that offers a comprehensive curriculum based on the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. The school also offers a range of extra-curricular activities, such as sports, music, and drama," explained one expat living in Russia.

"A pricey school with the curriculum of a mid-level American public school. It changed to common core a few years ago which is baffling and the change was done apparently without clear understanding of the international parents. It is now a mish mash of PYP, common core and IB programming. The math program is very poor. They run some standard testing but the computer systems often fail during testing and scores are therefore uneven. Teachers' kids appear to be given preferential treatment. Teachers have special use of facilities and parents are made to pay to even use the gym facilities! This school is sub par in my opinion. It is a shiny, beautiful building on the outside, without the academic structure you would expect. Administration is not responsive and can actually be unwelcoming to those who point out problems. We were glad to leave," said one parent with children at Anglo American School of Moscow in Moscow.
