International Education in Buenos Aires

⇩ Scroll directly to the list of top 10 best schools in Buenos Aires ⇩

With its unique blend of old Europe and modern Latin America, expats have been enchanted by Buenos Aires for decades. The Argentinian capital is the country’s economic and business centre, so opportunities abound for those considering a move here. If you’re bringing the kids along too, then you’ll be glad to know there are plenty of options when it comes to international schools.

The majority of international schools in Buenos Aires are bilingual and will instruct students in both English and Spanish. If you choose a school that follows a curriculum other than British or the International Baccalaureate, then the language of instruction will follow that curriculum (i.e. a French curriculum school will teach through French and Spanish instead of English and Spanish).

It’s common for international schools in Buenos Aires to be named after saints or to have religious-sounding names. Keep in mind, however, that the majority of these schools are actually secular. And just to make things even more confusing, the opposite can also be true. You may find a school with a secular name that makes religion a core part of its approach to education. So, don’t make assumptions about an international school in Argentina by name alone.

Another common trait of Buenos Aires’ international schools is uniforms. They are often compulsory and are usually similar to the traditional school uniforms you see in other parts of the world. In most cases the cost of the uniform is not included in the school fees. Supplies like school books and stationery etc. are also not included.

Don’t forget that in South America, summer begins in November/December and lasts until February/March. So unlike schools in the Northern hemisphere, the academic year begins in March and summer holidays kick off at the end of the year.

You can often judge whether an international school is legitimate or reputable by its accreditations. The Council of International Schools is a worldwide association that all well-regarded international schools affiliate with. In Argentina, you should also look out for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools or the Association of American Schools in South America.

If you decide to make Buenos Aires a more permanent home, then it’s worth noting that undergraduate programs in Argentina’s public universities are free for everyone. Attending an international school will make sure your child is extremely well prepared for university, either in Argentina, elsewhere in South America or anywhere else in the world too.
