I had no idea there were so many curriculums and had no idea where to start. The quick videos about curriculums really helped me. I then used the search on School Searcher and narrowed my options right down. Quick and painless! Now I'm booking show arounds ready to choose a school for my kids for September. 5 stars to School Searcher!

Moving from the UK to Abu Dhabi, I had no idea where to start. I found School Searcher quick and easy to use to give me a short list of nurseries which were in the area that we wanted. I then read about them and requested calls from those I was interested in and was able to reduce my choices even further. I booked show arounds with my favourite 3 for the week we arrived and made my choice. It took all the stress away.

Very useful site for me to find a school near my home which we can afford.
I was lost, but now I am found! Love this site... it's quick, accurate and easy!
Jacqui Parsons
We wanted to find out more about IB schools and found the Expert videos are really helpful. I found lots of articles online about how to choose schools, but they're so long and I found myself getting even more confused. I liked that we could also get a feel for the Principal and their personality. Thank you School Searcher.
