Oakridge International School offering the International Baccalaureate® (IB) programs aim to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. IB strives to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. The IB's programs are different from other curricula because they: Encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions Develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools Encourages students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts.

My daughter who turned 3 recently is in playschool. I am planning to put her in a proper school this June. There is a new school in my area which has both IB and CBSE but right now has classes functioning till 5th grade. As I myself have been an ISCE passout I have an inclination towards the same. however, I am someone who has an eye for International education and would like my daughter to study abroad. There is an Olympiad school also in my vicinity which,parents say, focuses more on studies and cracking competitive exams rather than focusing on extra curricular activities. So I am basically bomabarded with information of a large variety of curriculum. I support your suggestion of striking a balance. Please advice.

hi jitendra! glad that you liked the blog. the brain development research results are now accessible in open space. in fact the research has become the corner stone for all further research in child development and education thereon. i feel that a child's curiosity will not get curbed by unavailability of these, on the contrary it can be enhanced by providing a more enriched surrounding with wonder and variety.

I request the blogger to provide where she/he read the research that 90% of child's brain's development happens during infancy. I read this claim in many pre school's advertisements... In these days, infancy I didn't attend school at all... no formal education... parents didn't have time to attend me... does this mean my brain development didn't take place properly.. ? On the contrary I spent these days almost unattended.. I believe that has helped me grow independently.... The rest of the info is useful.

hey nidhi! more and more colleges including DU have had one challenge with timing of results for IB but offlate they have started opening up more and you would soon see that IB/IGCSE in India shall have a slightly differed (preponed) results timings for DP (XI, XII equivalent).

Quite informative. I had always been told by people around that if my child does IB, he will not be able to give competitive exams in India. Good to know that's not true. Though I do believe that children studying CBSE will have an upper edge. I had one query though, what is the scene at Delhi University for IB students? Is there any scope?

Thanks Nitin! It could not have been simplified better than this. This blog makes important points to be kept in mind easier to comprehend and decide accordingly . Since I am going through this process myself, I completely agree with u on this that's it is essential to seek a clear understanding of school's philosophy, and other necessary details.. I wish this confusion on number of seats could also be settled soon. Thanks again Nitin!
