As in many other countries, the educational system in Dominican Republic include free public schools, where classes are normally taught in Spanish, and private institutions teaching a US curriculum both in English and Spanish. Children from expat families usually opt for private schools where students should first demonstrate a certain level of English fluency for entrance. Tuition fees vary between $2100-$5300 USD per academic year depending on the institution and the student’s age as well as on whether that includes lunches, uniforms, books and other learning materials.
The most important thing parents look at when choosing the educational organization for their children is whether it has the accreditation of the US Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), necessary for obtaining a higher education in the United States, or the International Baccalaureate curriculum, required for entering a European university. But normally schools that are accredited by the Dominican Ministry of Education offer certificates valid in most European and North, South Americas.
Besides, there will be a range of educational organizations just inside of Dream City so there will be even less worries for parents who would like to move to Dominican Republic and give a proper education to their children.
