K-12

The number of K-12 schools in developing countries is increasing by leaps and bounds.  While a number of provinces, most notably Ontario, actually have divisions within their Departments of Education that actively seek out and market the establishment of international schools based on their curricula, Nova Scotia, to date, has been more ad hoc.  That being said, Nova Scotia has a long-standing (10 year) international school in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and more recently, two schools established in China, and recently two schools in Cairo, Egypt for the establishment of K-12 schools based on the Nova Scotia curriculum.  The identification of those interested in K-12 schools (in any country) can be done on a school-by-school basis, through group marketing, or through developing and/or responding to needs (even tenders) where entire regions or countries adopt the Nova Scotia curriculum.
