Most international schools in Ghana are in the capital, Accra. The major advantage of these schools is that they follow various foreign curricula that allow many expat students to continue where they left off in their home country. The standard of teaching at international schools tends to be high and facilities are in line with those in Europe or North America.

Many of them allow bilingual learning experiences as well as additional foreign languages. Some schools are Montessori or Christian-based which may be preferred by some expat families, and several schools offer care and educational services for children of just a few months old to 18 years of age.

Of course, international schools carry hefty fees but the higher quality facilities, better education and schooling are worth it. Expats may be able to negotiate tuition allowances with their employers to help them.

Here is a list of some of the international schools available in Ghana.
