Education in Ethiopia was traditionally based on principles of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Secular education was adopted in the early 1900s as the system continues to develop and change. There is still a need for improvement as illiteracy remains high, even when compared with other areas of Africa. Rural areas are still poorly served, and girls drop ours at a higher rate than their male counterparts.
The sequence of general education in Ethiopia is eight years of primary school, two years of lower secondary school and two years of higher secondary school. Foreign nationals are not accepted in the public schools of Ethiopia.
International schools can be the perfect solution for an expat student (multinational corporation executives, children of diplomats, NGO staff) in Ethiopia. Schools are usually geared for an international student body and follow a curriculum model from the US, UK, or France. Primary instruction may be any language (and multiple languages are usually taught), but it is usually in English or French. Schools provide similar standards of schooling around the globe, providing for an easy transition between schools whether they are in France or Vietnam. Schools also provide internationally accepted accreditation such as the international baccalaureate.
Admission and enrollment procedures vary from school to school. Space is often limited and preference may be given to students based on nationality. Tuition tends to be expensive based on local standards, but offers high standards of learning, boast smaller class sizes, first-rate facilities, and extracurricular. Boarding facilities are available at some schools, but most only provide day classes.
