Hi, Muchaneta :)

Welcome to Expat.com

Her age, she would just be finishing high school in Europe. I am pretty sure no school would take her on.

But have you looked at local colleges? Am I gathering she does not speak Spanish either? That could also cause some troubles. Best thing is to have a talk with the local college or an Adult learning centre? And see what they have to say.

I pretty sure that there will be someone there that will be fluent in English and that will make it easier for you to understand.

Good luck

Thank u.Do u have any idea where I can find a college or adult learning Center in Alicante for her?As long they can enroll her to finish high school.The most important for her is to finish her school.

Thank u

This is the government website to (Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte or MECD) the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. You will have to get in contact with them to find your nearest one.

Thank u so much for your help.I will contact them tomorrow.

You could potentially get in contact with King's College Alicante and see if they would be interested in taking her on. They are a well known school in Alicante and achieve top results so it may be of interest to you.

Thanks
