5 Reasons to Choose an International Education
June 8, 2020
If you want the
best for your child, giving them an international education is perhaps the best
way to equip a person for a successful and meaningful life. Many parents are
not aware of the advantages of international education; viewing it as an
expensive service for the children of diplomats and business tycoons, yet by
its very nature, international education holds to the very highest standards in
Here are a few
reasons to send your child to an international school.
Best Curriculum –
International schools are designed for children of foreign workers and therefore,
follow the best curriculum (British or American), which is standardised around
the world and that ensures the children study a structured learning program
throughout their formal education. There is an emphasis on IT, as this is very
much the future, and the students would integrate information technology into
their studies, learning more as they proceed through the grades. When a student
leaves Year 12, they would be able to build websites, create PowerPoint
presentations and spreadsheets as a matter of course.
Teachers – International
schools only recruit from their home country, so a school that follows the
British standard curriculum would recruit their teachers from the UK, and all
would be fully qualified. The highest salaries are offered by the international school which ensure they can hire the very best,
and with professional teachers that know how to deliver the content in an
engaging manner, the children develop in every respect.
Thinking Skills – The
British curriculum is presented to the students in a very active way, with
project-based learning empowering the learner through collaboration, and the
learners are encouraged to share their opinions, which develops critical
thinking and problem-solving skills that will empower the child in later life.
the Right Values –
Children adapt very quickly and if a child is in an environment where honesty,
respect and other good virtues are present, this will help to form the right
values within the child. Learning that we, as human beings, are all born equal
and that every person has the right to express themselves in a suitable way
will lead to a well-balanced individual that will live a productive life and be
a benefit to society.
Language Fluency – If you
live in a non-English speaking country, enrolling your child in an
international program is the best way to ensure fluency in English, which is,
of course, very important when it comes to careers. If, for example, a child
living in Thailand, with a Thai mother and European father studies at an
international school, they will acquire their English from the school
experience, as every subject is taught in English.
If you would like
to book a tour at your local international school, an online search will help
you locate the school’s website and you can make an appointment to see the
principal and take the first steps to ensuring a first-class education for your
