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 The problem here is that in the 21st century this is an outdated model, and is likely to put your child at risk.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 email@example.com.
With warm regards,
We are so thrilled that our child loves going to school so much. When the school first started, we were so nerve-wracked. Would he like school? Would he socialize and make new friends? When he instantly started loving school and going to class, we were so relieved. We wish to thank the team Indus Altum for accepting Param with open arms and for making him enjoy going to school each day. From the rooms you decorate to the activities you plan, each of these has enriched Param in all spheres of life. Through your hard work, our child is settling down. Your work, wisdom, and passion have helped him to become a better human being. Thank you so much for filling each day of school with enthusiasm, fun and unconditional love. Thank you for all your hard work, sacrifice and energy! With profound regards,

Fantastic school!! Great infrastructure along with the best teachers who nurture the kids for all-round development, second to none. The small class size ensures excellent & dedicated attention which reflects the child’s learning experience. Kids enjoy, learn, improve and develop at IAELC. Moreover, they are eager to go to school every day. Online classes during the pandemic are also quite effective. We are fortunate to have our son enrolled.
Indus Altum Early Learning Centre has a team of best teachers creating future citizens. I am happy to be associated with team IAELC. My best wishes to them to continue with the same quality work.
I feel so proud that we chose IAELC for Anika. We, as parents, are pleased and happy to see how Anika has been molded. We would like to appreciate and thank all the teachers for all their efforts and hard work, especially during the pandemic days. I have seen immense growth in my child in the last few months and I feel happy to have chosen the right preschool. She is happy to go to school as well as attending her virtual school. Her social skills are improving and I see her performing well in academics.She does not hesitate to ask if she doesn’t know something. Thanks again to the teachers; I know it is not easy to manage so many young children at once and also to teach them. The staff is doing a commendable job. Kudos to Team IAELC!"
Initially, when we enrolled our daughter at Indus Altum Early Learning Centre, we were thinking of keeping her just for a year. But within 6 months of my daughter joining IAELC, we saw immense growth in her confidence, social and cognitive skills. The fact that my daughter gets up every day morning and says that I want to go to school speaks a lot about the loving, happy and nurturing environment the school provides. Most importantly, every child is allowed to develop at his/ her own pace. Indus Altum Early Learning Centre is the best decision that we have taken for our child.Thank you IAELC for facilitating the holistic development of our child.
In IAELC we have found an organisation that works as a reliable partner in providing a robust and comprehensive educational foundation to our daughter. It is indeed a testament to the continued dedication and dynamic approach of IAELC teachers that has enabled the delivery of quality educational content via online platforms. We take this opportunity to express our gratitude for their efforts and wish them success in their future endeavors’.

I am always excited to speak about IAELC, Belgaum.Some of the aspects that I like are the school spirit, atmosphere, a sense of community involvement, motivated teachers and engaging activities. Respect is the key value that I see here and this sets good modeling for the kids. Character molding is given extreme importance along with a focus on academic excellence.Thank You and please continue what you do!
