There is virtually no illiteracy in Aruba. This is mainly due to the excellent education, which is of a very high standard for the Caribbean. There are schools for public and special education. The education system in Aruba is almost the same as the Dutch school system. In addition to the normal subjects, the children are also taught in Papiamento. Many schools also teach English and Spanish in the upper classes. After primary education, you can choose from primary, secondary and higher professional education. For university education, people rely mainly on foreign countries.
