International Schools in Coimbatore
An international school is a school that promotes international education, in an international environment, either by adopting a curriculum such as that of the American curricula(the International General Certificate of Secondary Education or the IB Diploma Programme), International Baccalaureate (Geneva, Swizterland), Edexcel (Pearson Edexcal – UK) or Cambridge International Examinations, or by following a national curriculum different from that of the school's country of residence.
Students attend these schools to learn the language of the international school and to obtain qualifications for employment or higher education in a foreign country.
These international curriculae are committed to internationalism, developing the global citizen, providing an environment for optimal learning, and teaching in an international setting that fosters understanding, independence, interdependence, and cooperation.
Like other schools, international schools teach language arts, mathematics, the sciences, humanities, the arts, physical education, information technology, and design technology. More recent developments specifically for primary school include the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). There are currently 3063 schools offering the international baccalaureate curriculum in the world.
Students who receive an international education leave school very well-prepared for further study and work. International school students develop a better range of `soft' skills such as time management, critical analysis and independent thinking than their peers who have followed national qualification programmes.
The extracurricular activities on offer in many such schools allow for the child to gain access to skills that may elsewhere not be nurtured, maybe even discouraged. These can range from imagination games and creativity to mathematics and robotics. And when the child develops new and exciting skills, they grow more confident and learn how to communicate and work with other children.
