The time when you have to choose a school for your little one is probably the most difficult time for you. You are still figuring out what it is like to be a parent and your young toddler is already 2.
Why is choosing the right school so important?
Well, because your child’s life and future is going to be shaped based on the choice you make now.
Today, we have a choice of educational boards: SSC, CBSE, ICSE, NIOS, IB, Cambridge, etc. How do you choose wisely when confronted with this array of options?
This is why we have put together a quick summary of the benefits of admitting your child to an IB School, in Mumbai.
Understanding International Board (IB)
It is an internationally-recognised school system made up of three educational programmes:
i. PYP: Primary Years Programme (Kindergarten to Class 5).
ii. MYP: Middle Years Programme (Class 6 to Class 10).
iii. DP: Diploma Programme (Class 11 to Class 12).
The IB programme is more practical and application-based. It has a broader spectrum of subjects that lead to all-round development in your child. The IB Curriculum and teaching methods are different from the theory-oriented CBSE and ICSE Boards, or even the State Boards.
IB students do not have difficulty in grasping new concepts and have more exposure to technology, science, arts and the world.
IB examinations test the students' knowledge, not their memory and speed. There are no examinations till the Middle Years Programme (Class 10). The focus of the IB is on 'how to learn' rather than 'what to learn'. The IB curriculum emphasises the physical, psychological, intellectual and social development of your child.
IB Schools help students learn more about themselves and about ethics like teamwork and leadership which help mould their personality.
Tim Woffenden, a leading IB consultant who advises independent and state school, says: “IB students are better prepared for university, and, more importantly, life”
Ananyaa is very excited about the current uoi topic air. As soon as she came home she explained the entire experiment of candle and jar. I thank you for making learning so much fun for Ananyaa and developing the qualities of a thinker in her with such experiments.
Thanks a lot!

Nafees has shown a lot of understanding and confidence about the UOI Houses. He has started explaining the types of houses that are there according to the weather of the places we live in. He really had fun and showed interest while practicing making the stilt house at home for the summative assessment and a little more about stilt house to explain it in class.

Ishaan has been enjoying school. He has been singing the ‘Healthy and junk food’ song that they have learned in school. He thoroughly enjoyed the spelling bee conducted by Principal sir last week. He loves the space videos that they watch during break times. He has explained how Pluto’s orbit crosses into Neptune’s, how the atmosphere scatters the sun’s rays during sunset and sunrise to make the sky look red

I am grateful for all the wonderful things the school and Tanvi Teacher are doing for our son Noel. He is growing extremely intellectual and physically active by the day. We loved both the grammar fest and sports day arrangements. Lot of trouble was taken. The school and his teacher have been working very hard to make him good, better and eventually best.

I am happy to see how Shiven has been taught the UOI ‘Rainforest’ and ‘Needs and Wants’. He understood it very well that he came home and explained the same to us. I like how he is interested in his studies and he comes home and shares the same. Once again thank you to the homeroom teacher and NESISM School for putting in so much effort towards our child.

The progress and development of Dishita has always been overwhelming. I have always had good results from her. Thanks to the homeroom teacher who has taken care of her not only in her studies but also her behavior and habits. Great thanks to the NESISM team.

My daughter has shown positive development thanks to the training and learning she is receiving at school. She is willing to help people, she even helps me and her father in our everyday activites. It is amazing to see how she is practically applying her learnings from school in her daily life. We are quite happy with her conduct and would like to sincerely thank her teachers and the entire management.

Myra by now has completely accustomed and adjusted to the routine and culture of NESISM. I am very delighted to notice that she has taken the least time to adjust in the school. She speaks with a lot of pride about her school in front of the family. We are looking forward to learn and grow together.

Improvement in Parini’s confidence is reflected at home. She has started opening up and mingling with others. She tries to read different words and enjoys the same. She has evolved as a good sports person. She discusses a lot about the topics taught to her in school.
