Learners in Mauritius follow mainly the British education system. This is divided into pre-primary, primary, secondary and tertiary streams.

Public institutions are managed chiefly by the Mauritian government. Education is free at primary and secondary schools. Wearing a prescribed school uniform is mandatory.

Private schools, for which fees are payable, offer English and French education systems.

English is the official language. Children can be schooled according to a bilingual, English or French system, depending on your preference. Most of the schools have computer equipment.
