The education system in Barbados is modelled after the British system. Education is mandatory for children between the ages of 5 and 16. The educational program in Barbados is administered by the Ministry of Education and is free for nationals in all government-run schools.
Enrollment into any school REQUIRES a student visa from the Barbados Immigration Department, which must be obtained before the child has a place in a school. Children are tested by each school to determine what class they should attend. There are no tax benefits for enrollment in Barbadian schools.

Ross Spouses Organization (RSO]
RSO spouses are familiar with local schools and day cares and their practices; what kind of children's toys, supplies, and groceries are available on the island; and what companions can expect to do with their time while they're here with their student. They also welcome single parents to their group who are students, because they want to help support them in their transition and journey too!
