PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN ALICANTE AND MURCIA
If you have children and want them to receive the best possible education, there is a wide range of private schools in Alicante’s Vega Baja area where they will have access to excellent tuition and facilities.
These schools often have a rigorous admissions process and consider a number of different conditions for future students:
- Knowledge of the language used at the school.
- Whether there are already family members studying at the school.
- Whether the student’s parents work at the school.
- Recommendations from parents of children who already attend the school.
There may also be additional costs depending on the school, such as registration fees, uniforms, learning materials, extra-curricular activities, meals or the International Baccalaureate (optional and taught in parallel with the Spanish national syllabus).
El Limonar (ELIS Murcia – ELIS Villamartin): Both schools have sports facilities such as athletics tracks and football pitches and have facilities for teaching drama, art & design, music, science and research.
