Public Schools in Marbella

Hello dear everyone!

My family and I are from Israel, and we fell in love with Marbella, and decided to move there.

We have three girls, 3,8,10 who do not speak English or Spanish. They will have very basic English by the time we move. We thought a bilingual school will be great.

We looked at Atalaya (private), and wondered if there is any public bilingual school around San Pedro, Behaves, etc.

We would really appreiciate your help!

Hi there

I have two children at Atalaya and couldn't recommend it highly enough. They had English and no Spanish but were also in classes with other children who had no English or Spanish. Now at the end of their first year, all children are communicating in Spanish and English. There are extra classes for children without one or the other language within the curriculum for either/ or Spanish or English. The teachers are very approachable and there is a great deal of two-way communication between parents and teachers. As parents of two children who never moan about going to school in the morning, we are very happy!
