International Schools in the Balearic Islands
The Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca are home to an eclectic mix of international year-round residents, enjoying an idyllic Mediterranean lifestyle and access to top international schools teaching a mix of national curriculums from abroad, as well as highly regarded local schools (where Catalan and Spanish are the main languages spoken).
There are several international and multilingual schools in Ibiza, including Morna International College in Santa Gertrudis, a private co-educational day school following the British curriculum from nursery school to the end of secondary school. With English as the principal language of instruction, pupils are prepared for IGCSEs at the age of 16 and A-Levels at 18 and have the option to study both Spanish and German at foreign language or native level.
Teaching at Colegio Mestral in Ibiza town is divided equally between Spanish and Catalan, with plenty of additional English and an emphasis on small classes and high academic standards. The Lycée Français International d’Ibiza is a semi-private school subsidised by the French government, offering a primarily French education with music and sports lessons taught in Spanish. Students can also undertake additional intensive courses in Spanish, Catalan and English.
