We are relocating from the NY area with a five and one year old, but didn’t know where to start finding a school. My Barcelona School helped us make sense of the school system from an English-speaking angle, giving us an insider viewpoint that only a professional teacher can give.
Anya recommended we start the process several months before visiting. We completed an exercise of deciding what we wanted from a school as expats. One of the benefits of Barcelona is that there is a lot of choice in the city so it’s vital to narrow down. We were focussed on giving our children a second or third language as well as maintaining spoken and written English. We also wanted a city location so they would engage in the local culture which is so accessible to families. MBS sent us a list schools that suited our needs. We went from having no choices to about 10 schools that we were seriously interested in.
After making the list, Anya recommended one of us fly to Barcelona to see all the schools for ourselves and to then decide what was the best fit. Having just finished the school visits I feel confident we have found the school that works for us. I can’t recommend this process enough.
Thank you Anya.

The service that Anya offers is priceless for any expat or international family that are trying to figure out the Catalonian school system. I had so many questions and was quite lost before I met with Anya. She calmed me down and walked me through, step by step, the system here. What I really liked is that Anya catered to me personally; asking what was importing to me and what I was looking for. In that way we zeroed in immediately on the schools that could work for me. She asked important questions about what was important to me such as; location, language, style of teaching, and knew most of the schools personally.
I really highly recommend Anya´s services. She definitely relieved any worries and anxieties I had in the beginning. Our conversations have been candid, accommodating, thorough and pleasant!
