What types of schools do most expats in your city choose for their children?
Most expats tend to send their children to private schools. There are a number of international schools in Balikpapan and other major cities that teach in English, French, German, Dutch and Japanese.

Keep in mind that tuition fees are quite high for private schools and there is usually a waiting list. It is recommended that you contact the school of your choice as soon as you arrive so you are able to obtain a spot on the list.
