tongc has no particular reputation at present
international or local school

Hello community! We plan to move to Zurich with our daughters aged 8 and 4. They were born in the UK and have been educated in state schools (academy).
At a stretch we might be able to afford to send both of them to international schools but it would be great if you could share your experiences, 1) is it worth the extra money put in (to send them into international schools), 2) how does international schools compare to the local ones, 3) if we'd like to set them up for success academically, what would be our best choice?
On the other hand, we'd also like them (and us) to integrate into local community so public school might be a better option anyway.
Any thoughts are appreciated!
