3 reasons why every parent must consider IB education for their child.
When it comes to selecting a school for your child, parents are faced with a plethora of options these days. It is no longer only about the quality of education and other services that schools have to offer, but also about the curriculum they follow.
Asking friends and relatives for their opinion to help you decide surely sounds like a good idea, but more often than not, their opinions are very subjective. And deciding your child’s future based on someone’s personal opinion isn’t a very wise thing to do, is it?
What your child learns in school lays the foundation of his overall personality. The quality of education he gets at an early age plays a major role in shaping your child into the person he becomes. As responsible parents, it is obvious that you would want the best for your child.
To attain this, your child needs a school that inculcates in him strong interpersonal values, promotes opinion formation, and encourages healthy relationship building. All this, while ensuring that the education he gets helps him excel in his personal and professional life, no matter what part of the world he is in.
For generations now, CBSE and ICSE education has been considered the best in class. But with the introduction of IB schools in India, the scenario has changed dramatically. People are increasingly realizing the benefits of opting for IB over anything else. And it isn’t minor differences, but striking rationales that fuel these decisions.
Here are the 3 primary reasons that make IB education the best thing you can give your child
1. Education that’s actionable
How many of us are actually applying what we’ve learned in school and college in our everyday professional lives?
One of the biggest advantages of IB education is that the things you are taught are at par with industry demand and therefore, easy to apply in your work life. IB education encourages students to learn, analyze and understand what they are being taught, rather than simply mugging up what’s written in the prescribed textbook.
Unlike every other educational Board in India, students in IB curriculum are not assigned a set textbook which they are expected to memorize. Instead, they are exposed to the various resources available to understand the subject, and given the liberty to choose what they find best.
This method of teaching that’s unique to IB, not only makes learning a fun process for students, but also encourages them to always find the most efficient way to solve whatever problem life throws at them.
2. Study subjects that interest you
Unlike any other education systems in India, IB curriculum exposes students to the vast variety of subjects available and gives them the option to choose whatever interests them. Unlike the traditional Science, Commerce, and Arts where students can study only those subjects, IB gives students the option to mix and match the subjects according to their interest.
This interdisciplinary exposure ensures that students’ knowledge is not restricted to only one field, and helps them choose the best career option for themselves.
3. A globally renowned curriculum
If you plan to move overseas in the future or have that American dream for your child, IB must be your obvious choice. Students with an IB Diploma have a higher acceptance rate at colleges and universities abroad. Also, it's simpler for IB graduates to find professional opportunities in any part of the world. If you intend to move abroad, your child would have absolutely no difficulty adjusting to the new education system and school environment.
The unique tried and tested teaching methodology of IB education system is not only beneficial for your child’s present, but also ensures a rewarding future.

"We had almost finalized a school for my daughter when someone told us about NESISD. We decided to pay a visit to this school and are very glad we came here. They have modern classrooms in a well-lit, airy building and a huge playground. The school faculty is well qualified, extremely approachable and addresses concerns and queries very patiently. The teachers take extra efforts if the child is finding it difficult to grasp a topic which is very commendable. They have enrichment classes as well for the same. The UOI based IB pattern is very well imparted in the school. We get mails and newsletters about UOI’s, activities and sports being covered in school. The fact that knowledge is imparted through activity based learning is their USP and the school does it really well. We parents at times Google things, because our daughter tells us about something even we are not aware of. My daughter, initially, a shy kid has become very confident and improved tremendously in communication. We feel proud when she tells everyone to use water cautiously and plant more trees to combat pollution. We can see a holistic growth in her: knowledge, personality and responsibility."Mrs. Mrinalini Shetty
