My husband will start to work at Antwerp by 1st January .
We have 2 daughters ; 7 and 12 years old.
Now, we have to make 2 critical decisions ; which region to live and which schools to choose for our daughters?
We think living at a walking distance to school would help our daughthers for faster adaptation.
Will appreciate if you share your opinion/experience with us.

Thanks in advance !

Hi nursen

Schools in Antwerp are usually excellent, but you might have to compete with others and get on a waiting list. It's best to apply as soon as possible. Expats generally choose international schools in Antwerp, because you've got the benefit of a familiar curriculum and an easier transition. 

There is a wide variety of schools in Antwerp, and once you decide on a school, you can look at accommodation nearby. Have a read of our guide to areas and suburbs in Antwerp to give you an idea of what's family friendly and what's not. Where will you be moving from?

Hope this helps,
