Good Schools Guide International

Good Schools Guide International

The Good Schools Guide International is an online subscription service that reviews English-speaking international schools in 50 cities in over 35 countries (and growing).

Like their sister publication, the UK best seller The Good Schools Guide, the GSGI is completely independent. All school reviews are selected and written by the Guide - not the school. No school ads, no sponsorships. That means complete editorial freedom, no restrictions, no holding back.

The Good Schools Guide International is written for parents by GSGI editors who live in that country and are parents themselves. They know which schools should make the cut (or not). The GSGI doesn't shy away from judgments; editors differentiate between schools, interview parents, visit schools, and only select the schools that measure up to the best in other countries. If a school is merely the best of a bad lot, it doesn't make the Guide.

Subscribe to the GSGI as your only resource, or as an adjunct to other consultants or relocation companies. Its crisp, clear, often irreverent advice  gives you the inside scoop on schools, headmasters, sports, school commutes, and neighbourhoods - everything you need to figure how the best plan for your family.

Study the Guide in the middle of a sleepless night, or hire a GSGI editor/advisor for one-to-one  guidance  and advice.

 A subscription to The Good Schools Guide International costs just £35 and gives you unlimited access to:

Reviews of top British, American, international schools worldwide;
