local /private schools for my children

My family of 4 ( 2 pre-teen daughters, myself and hubby) will be moving to Colombia in 2018.
I am having difficulty navigating the seemingly small list of Medellin schools.  I'm not looking for expensive International schools full of foreigner kids, but, since Spanish will be my girls' 3rd language, some English is a MUST.  We are a Canadian family who has been living in China for the past 3 years-yes, they are fluent in Mandarin- and are REALLY looking forward to a South American Lifestyle! 
Any info, opinions, stories or contacts would be a great help.

Hi RobyneL,
I'm Brian, a fellow Canadian. I previously visited Medellin 5x between 2010-2012. It is a fantastic city, the best city all round in all of Colombia in my opinion. You are in luck. They have an excellent Canadian middle/high school or college in Medellin where most of the teachers are Canadians. You can find out lots more information about that highly rated school online.

Hi RobyneL,
