Subject: Why Are International Schools Advantageous to Children?


Why Are International Schools Advantageous to Children?

By Aman Tumukur Khanna

Over the last few years, the number of parents who send their children to international schools has been showing an upwards trend. With each passing day, more and more mothers and fathers are opting to send their kids to international schools, rather than local ones. What could be the possible reason behind this new pattern? Well, it could probably be the numerous advantages that international schools have, over the local ones. Some of them are discussed below.

1. Richness of culture -

Children who go to international schools are exposed to other children from different cultural backgrounds. They are made to interact with peers from varied backgrounds. As a result, they gain an understanding of the lives that people from different parts of the world lead, at a very early age. This better prepares them for their lives as adults.

2. Linguistic skills -

Owing to the fact that English would probably be the only common language among various children from different parts of the world, students of international schools gain mastery over the language pretty early in life. Also, interacting with their friends will enable them to learn other languages as well. It has been scientifically proved that children who are taught to speak more than two languages develop a higher intelligence quotient.

3. Behavior patterns -

Children who are enrolled in international schools learn how to behave around people from different walks of life, and people with different temperaments. This sows the seeds for an enviable behavioral pattern that will come in very useful in later life, when they, as adults, will have to interact with a blend of various people.

4. Understanding and maturity -

International schools offer a curriculum that enables their students to gain understanding about the world in general. The environment they provide is also conducive to helping the children to obtain a level of maturity that is necessary for survival. They learn to see the big picture, so to say, at an early age. This is something that local schools do not succeed in accomplishing.

5. Overall Personality development -

A combination of several factors, such as variety, learning tolerance, improved intelligence, and increased knowledge sharing contributes to the overall personality development of the child. This is an important life skill, which, if taught early in life, becomes an asset when the students move on to build their careers. It also makes them really nice to be around, and they gain a lot of friends in the process. Sometimes, these friendships may last a lifetime.
