What International School benefits can you expect your kid’s better future?
Sep, 07 2021

Of all the decisions you take on behalf of your kid the most preliminary one of choosing the best school for your kid is perhaps the toughest. With a plethora of educational institutions around and new ones adding each day choosing the right school for your kid can surely be a challenge.

We all know that Indian education has a typical western inclination, probably because of the deep-rooted British influence. Though the central governing body NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training) monitors pedagogies and curriculums of Indian educational institutions running by providing technical and monetary support; it still has to encounter many challenges.

The traditional education system in India suffers from problems like lack of competent staff, red –tape, lack of political will, infrastructural shortcomings, and a lot more. However, as we are gradually evolving as an aspirational country wanting to contribute to every sector of the global economy, the question arises, are our schools competent enough to prepare our children for these aspirations?

According to legendary educators, education is successful, if it makes a child rational, and enhances their thinking abilities. Education is successful if the pupils grow to become empathetic and well-informed global citizens. However, unfortunately, the stereotype exam-centric, chalk and talk curriculum of the existing Indian education system lacks the dispositions necessary to laying the foundation of a strong career base for students suitable for their talents.

The Emergence of International Schools

Owing to the drawbacks of the existing model of education, an alternate education system was much needed. There was a need to focus on the inborn talents of children rather than his numbers on the exam sheet. The result was the emergence of private educational institutions. Over the past two decades owing to the rapid urbanization of India, there is a surge in the demand for private education among the growing middle class which explains why they are so popular in our country.

In the last 15 years, there has been 10 times growth in the number of International Schools in India says a survey by Research Gate. Although Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) is the most established program adopted by the International Schools across India. Some of them either integrate the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in their curriculum and Pedagogy. Currently, there are approximately seven hundred International Schools in India that offer international education up to the middle and high school levels.

Benefits of studying in International Schools

Undoubtedly, getting an education in International Schools is much more advantageous because it implements a curriculum that prepares students to fit in the modern labour market and be responsible global citizens. Here are some added benefits of International Schools you must look into:

  • Curriculum set at par with global standards – As the term, ‘International School’ clearly represents education that is offered in line with foreign education. Many schools combine elements of more than one system so that students can be prepared to be more suitable for the global labour market.

    For example, the comprehensive International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) offered by Jain International Residential Schools (JIRS) is not only focused on academic and other social skills of the students but rather also focuses on personality development of students by shaping their approach towards integrity, liberty of thought and sense of discipline. 
  • Scope of learning Foreign Language – As already said International Schools introduce students to foreign culture providing them ample scope to learn foreign languages apart from vernacular language and English. Like in JIRS the students enrolled under IGCSE Program from Grade 8 to 10, and 9 to10 have a scope to learn three languages.

    This naturally brings spontaneity in the learning process that nurtures the inquisitive nature of children. Every language has its valuable aura that broadens young minds so that they can adapt even in unfavourable conditions and be successful in life.
  • Special attention to students – One of the major drawbacks of the existing educational system in India is the lower student-teacher ratio. But the picture is quite different in International Schools, where the student-teacher ratio remains high on average. Hence students communicate more with teachers and learn new concepts easily due to more intensive care by the teachers. The aim of this program is not to mug the textbooks, rather learn more real-life applicable concepts from the teacher.
  • Global opportunities for higher grade students – The programs of International Schools are globally accredited, so getting your kid admitted to these schools will open to him a whole world of opportunities. Many regional certificates might not be accepted by foreign universities, but, a student from International Schools has much fewer chances of rejection on the contrary. The unique grading system is highly accepted by institutions wold wide providing them an extensive opportunity for higher studies and scholarships. 

With such benefits would you not be interested in providing your kid a better future? With highly refined education systems, international standards, exposure to multiple languages and cultures your child will naturally have a competitive advantage over other students from the contemporary curriculum.
