Education and Schools

Russia - Education and Schools

The majority of expatriates send their children to the international schools, although some send their children to Russian schools. Russian educational standards are high, but all teaching is in Russian.

In Moscow the most popular international schools include the Anglo-American School, Hinkston Christian Academy and the British International School. There are also a number of schools catering to the children of particular nationalities, including German, Japanese and Italian schools.

There is a British American School in St Petersburg, which is used by most western expatriate families living there.

Most international schools in Russia are based on the North American educational system, modified to incorporate elements of the British curriculum. Students usually study for the International Baccalaureate.

English language pre-schools are also available, some attached to the international schools.
