During the admission season, there is a lot talk and WhatsApp on which school to select for one’s child? That is an answer all parents want. For those seeking admission in international schools offering the International Baccalaureate, my advice is given below.
Every international school is good; but every international school has a different philosophy based on what they feel is the purpose of education. As parents, you must decide on the educational philosophy you believe in, and what is best suited for your child. In this regard, schools will fall into two broad categories.
The first category is traditional. They believe that the aim of education is teacher-centric, rote memorisation, scoring high marks in examination, and placements in reputed colleges abroad. Therefore, such schools tend to be exclusive, i.e., they admit students based solely on their academic performance at the time of entry. The problem here is that in the 21st century this is an outdated model, and is likely to put your child at risk.
The second category is where Indus schools lead. We believe that in a volatile and uncertain world, where job obsolescence is the order of the day, the purpose of education is to prepare a child for a future we do not know. Consequently, we are an inclusive school. We believe that, content knowledge is less important than entrepreneurial competencies, to enable a child to re-role, re-learn, re-skill and reinvent oneself. We believe that the purpose of education must also enable a child to find her purpose, and in the process, discover her potential.
Now, I sincerely hope you will find it easy to decide in which school to admit your child. If you still have doubts, you may write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With warm regards,
Going to school and finding happiness was the ultimate paradox for our daughter Abhisarika. It was a horrific experience for her in her first school. We literally went searching every single premise and went through lots of suggestions and recommendations. And eventually we came across Indus Early Learning. Ms. Sonali with all her brief and apt verses illumined all those dark doubts which all parents have. And Yes! Those are not only the words and promises, but a uniform palpable sea of stories where every single child will long to splash in!

After a lot of research and discussions, I zeroed in on Indus International School Bangalore. Thus my 4 yr old ,Mia joined their Koramangala branch .From that tensed first day of school to date , my only problem with Indus is that my daughter now prefers school to home .With Mia it’s mainly because the school keeps her on her toes with a good balance of fun activities like dance , sports , music etc., along with education. The curriculum is well planned and executed even better.3 Months into Indus, she can speak Spanish, play a keyboard and chess. Her teacher Miss Meera is almost like her second mother, she’s well qualified and someone you can absolutely trust. The Head of Centre is very grounded and approachable, always striving to make an already excellent school BETTER.
COMFORTING THE STUDENTS FROM EVERY ASPECT
IELC Koramangala excels in all aspects of an ideal preschool. The teachers practice the latest and international methods of teaching wherein the learning abilities and individual needs of each child are respected and given due importance. The school management and its policies are both children and parent friendly. The Head of Centre, Ms. Sonali Malhotra, has always valued the opinions of parents and addressed their concerns. Also, the school provides frequent opportunities for parent-teacher interactions through which parents gain insight into the learning process and progress of their children. IELC Koramangala is an excellent preschool.

Indus IELC has proven to be the perfect fit for my preschooler. The intimate feel of the building creates a comfortable environment that is not too daunting for a first-timer, and the staff reinforce this with their warm hands-on approach. The pace and standard of learning have been wonderful to see, as it's always with an element of fun that makes learning enjoyable. I have done, and will continue to, recommend Indus IELC for its professionalism, clear vision and sincere commitment to their pupils.
Perfect Fit for my Pre-schooler

The school is exceptional when it comes to the teachers. The teachers are extremely nice to the kids and ensure that they are learning in an environment of love and care with proper personal attention. My 4-year-old loves going to the school which in itself is a testament to the love he gets there. The premises are homely and hygienic with abundant space that a growing child needs with proper supervision and security. Will definitely recommend the Indus IELC centre in my circle.
Abundant love, care and space
