One of the most challenging aspects of relocating to Czechia can be finding the best school for your children. Fortunately for those families headed to Prague and the Czech Republic, the selection of international schools is top-notch, with options covering K-12 (as well as preschool).

International schools in Prague and the Czech Republic cater primarily to non-national students and offer various curricula, such as British, American, or language-based. These schools may be chosen for their teaching style or language of instruction, and they provide smaller class sizes and instruction in the mother tongue as well as a diverse range of extracurricular activities.

Parents seeking a more active role in the school community may find international schools appealing. However, families should consider potential downsides, such as limited assimilation into the local culture and language.

When choosing an international school, factors like tuition fees, accreditation, teacher turnover, language offerings, and technology access should be considered. It’s also helpful to speak with parents, take a student-guided tour and get a sense of the culture of the school by attending its events and activities. Many schools offer open-day events in the first part of the year.
