Do you have questions about public school in Spain?

Can you help me out?  I’m working on a little project and your expertise is needed.

Especially if you are an English speaking foreigner living in Spain, I need your input.

Are your kids in public school in Andalucial?  Tell me all the questions you have ever had about your school.  What are the things you didn’t know when you started?  What information did you search in vain for?  What details do you wish someone had told you?

Do you still stratch your head sometimes?  What parts of the system baffle, frustrate or bore you?  What parts of Spanish public school do you appreciate?

I really want to know.  Let’s share notes and swap lies.  Please, please, PLEASE leave me a comment below.  And then, if you are curious, I’ll tell you what I am up to.



  1. I worked in a bilingual CEIP in Madrid. The noise level and casual exchange between students and teachers even at the elementary level was surprising, but I enjoyed it! The school lunch at my school was far better than anything they serve at public schools in the US.

  2. I know this is an old post but would be curious to know what you found out/the results. My daughter attends a Spanish school with a “bilingual” programme so would find this very interesting. I have recently published a post about bilingual schools in Spain on my blog.
