As a mother of a grade 3 child Oakridge International School, Gachibowli - IB curriculum is worth it. 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.

Hey Adi! IB in India is still a recent phenomenon of not more than last 5 years. From a mere handful schools, now, IB has more than 100 odd schools in operations in India. Still nothing in comparison to the several thousands of state boards/CBSE schools. It is true that IB is still finding footing when it comes to avenues after the DP (Diploma program - equivallent of grade XI & XII). Also, it doesn't help when the results of the DP come out after most of the colleges in India have closed admissions for that running year. Most of the IB passouts prefer going abroad for their higher studies. CBSE international on the other hand is even more new comparitively, and at best is trying to strike a balance... too early to even judge what they are trying to do. There are a few handful of CBSE World/international schools only right now. The whole philosophy is different between IB and CBSE international. IB is an age old established international curriculum which operates on clear quality guidelines, has found a footing in India over the last 5 years, whereas CBSE international is an attempt of CBSE (Indian board) to go the next level to emulate some international norms. Hope this helps. :)
