Contrary to common belief, having the word “international” in a school’s name does not make it international. Some people specifically want to find out what an international school is and the list of international schools in Nigeria just so they can enrol their kids. With that we are forced to ask ourselves the question- WHAT then is an international school, HOW is it international and what makes it international if it so happens to be in your local country? The truth is, the location of the school doesn’t matter. What makes it international instead is if it includes a variety of formats and curricula, some being more international than others.
Therefore a school can be called international only if it follows a national or international curriculum different from that of the host country, that is, the country which it is in. Another factor common to international schools as you must have guessed are the facilities, socio-cultural environment as well as a multi-lingual reception.
