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 The problem here is that in the 21st century this is an outdated model, and is likely to put your child at risk.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,
I couldn't have chosen a better school for my son during this time. Indus exceeded my expectations by organising the online classes from May,2020 when no other school was even ready for pandemic. They designed the worksheets and activities in such a way that my 2year old was never bored of online classes and in-fact he always looks forward for the class. They are always open for suggestions and considers parents feedback to provide better online teaching experience for kids.

My son entered the school campus as an almost 3 years old about 1.5 years back and today its become like his second home! He loves his school, his teachers who go out of their way to care for every child, we are in touch with them 24x7, they are open about school's policies, procedures and they actually treat my child like one of their own! I guess Indus is the best start any child and their worried parents could ask for when it comes to academics.
A SECOND HOME FOR MY SON
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 in my circle.
Abundant love, care and space
