For families of foreigners with children, finding the best school is a major decision. One concern is the cost. We explain to you the how much it costs to study at an international school in Spain.
Even though public education is free in Spain, the public education system does not include international schools. If families want to look for international schools for their children, they should look among the few that are spread throughout Spain, such as Casvi International American School.
On the one hand, you want your child to immediately understand the language in which the material is taught and not fall behind on schoolwork. In this case, enrolling them in one of the many international schools would be the more straightforward choice. On the other hand, children learn and adapt very fast to new environments. Giving them the opportunity to experience the local school system could be a positive impact in their lives.
Besides, living in Spain is cheaper and more affordable than you might think. Cost of living in Spain for one month is one of the lowest in Western Europe.
Around 5 million foreign residents currently live in Spain. They choose this country for many reasons: Sunny climate, great cuisine, welcoming culture, well-developed healthcare system, great educational programs… In addition, the cost of living in Spain is quite low. In fact, it is one of the cheapest countries in Western Europe.
Leaving aside the price of rent and mortgages and depending on your lifestyle, a couple can live in Spain on 1,700 euros per month very easily, and still eat out in restaurants frequently. Once you know where to go, a daily menu costs only about 12 euros (with starter, main course, drink and dessert). The price of food is undoubtedly one of the cheapest in Europe, without leaving aside its taste and quality.
If you are a family, the average price of living in Spain obviously increases a little more, but not too much. At 100 euros per week for grocery shopping, it may be enough for a family of three, since children usually have lunch at school. Many basic food items are not expensive in Spain because of the warm climate.
Here is an example of the costs of living in Spain for a month, according to International Living.
Cost to live in Madrid
Living even in big cities like Madrid (capital of Spain), can also be cheaper than you think. As it happens all over the world, the cost of living in rural areas or outside large cities is cheaper than in major cities. However, if we compare the cost of living in big cities such as New York, London or Munich with Madrid, we can clearly see that Madrid is much cheaper.
