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 benefits of International Schools you must look into which aids proper mental development of your kid.
A comprehensive curriculum of all-round mental development
International schools have the necessary monitoring to help students in their after-school studies. They have a fixed timetable to complete their study and homework without and distraction. If they have any extracurricular interests, these school provides the necessary facility and care for them to pursue their interest. They get a distraction-free environment where they can concentrate on their studies and interests and be successful in future life.
The values of peer study, empathy and compassion
There is nothing better if children and adolescents get to spend time with friends, play with them. It also keeps away feelings of loneliness or depression or any behavioural disorders which they experience in case parents are not able to give them enough time. In international schools, kids co-reside with their friends, learn to share things with them, and be at home away from home. Studying with kids belonging to different origins and backgrounds develops their communication skills. International school are hence great for kids who are introverts as well.
Kids grow to become more disciplined and responsible
In an international school, kids must follow certain discipline and rules. Of course, there are teachers and wardens and house parents who take care of them, but they have to take self-care, eat their own food, and do their assigned tasks themselves. They have to follow the rules as well; in-time homework, meals on time and keep things organized. Since they inculcate these habits from childhood, they grow to be self-dependent individuals with an innate sense of discipline and responsibility.
Great communication skills
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.
A broader and global mindset
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 unfavorable conditions and be successful in life.
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.
