The Good Schools Guide International


The Good Schools Guide International is an independent guide for families moving abroad and looking for information about schools abroad. It is written by parents for parents and tells you the best international schools worldwide that cater to English-speaking expatriates- British, IB, American international schools and even national curriculum schools that expats choose.

The Good Schools Guide International (GSGI) now has schools reviewed and/or editors working in more than forty countries, some of which have not been listed on the GSGI yet. New schools and articles go up daily, and new countries and editors continue to be added.

Find Schools

You can find schools by location or school characteristics using their search tool.  All “schools considered by  English-speaking expats” abroad are listed. However, the best schools are indicated by their "flag of approval" and are comprehensively reviewed by the GSGI.

You can also read feature articles about education abroad. Some are free articles but you will have to subscribe to access most of them. The subscription gives you access to more than 200 articles on schooling abroad, curriculum differences...etc.

Educational Advisory Service

GSGI has set up a consultancy to advise parents, one-to-one, on choosing the best schooling for their children before they move abroad. GSGI advisors are all expats, and all are parents or educators.

Advisors can give advice on:

  • Specific local schools
  • Educational systems, curricula, exams for a particular country
  • Cultural overviews (expat survival and life in the host country)
  • Other questions about moving overseas


Advisory rates:

  • Flat fee  (first 3 hours): £495
  • Each additional hour: £150

The flat initial advisory rate of £495 (GB Pound Sterling) includes a minimum of three hours of any combination of telephone, email or in-person advice and research – and is usually quite adequate.  Special arrangements for more time can be made directly with the advisor.
