					In today's world, the competition among students is unstoppable. It is
high time there is a revolution in the education systems and
international schools is the answer. These days, education is not all
about academics; there is something beyond. International schools in
India come in different sizes and shapes and hence it is not always easy
to take a broad view of what these schools offer. But there are certain
things that lie common in any of the international schools irrespective
of their geographical location. As you read through you will understand
better as to why parents prefer an international school to a private or a
public school. Due to a high intake of candidates in a public school,
there is no possibility to pay individual attention to a particular
student. This, in a long term process, limits the growth of a student and
affects him in infinitive ways. Creativity is almost dead since the
teachers fail to discover the talent of an individual.   In an
international school, the best part is that they follow the -œNCLB-• rule
as it is termed in the US, which means to say, -œNo Child Left Behind-•.
The faculty of an international school is so particular about the life of
an individual. They conduct separate discussion sessions and frequent
meetings with parents and keep them updated on their children's growth.
Unlike in any other school, the class size of an international school is
comparatively small. This is a great advantage in a lot of ways. Every
student will be given individual attention and all his performance will
be monitored. The teacher has enough time to train a student in his
academic and extra-curricular activities. They will not need to refer a
progress card to remember the student's advancements whereas in a public
school, it takes a quarter year for the teacher to just analyze the
growth of an individual.   Relating to the above point, since the teacher
understands his pupil better, he knows what is good and what is not.
Remember, the faculties undergo hardcore training before they are
introduced to the class to give their very first lecture. The children
are given freedom to explore themselves and discover a whole new world of
creativity. The school stands as an encouraging pillar and supports the
student in all possible ways. Their works are always noticed and
appreciated. This encourages the students and helps them do great things.
The well trained faculties guide them in appropriate ways giving
individual attention. This, in the end means, they know what they are
doing, and they do a better job.   Generally, in public schools, the
whole motive of teaching would be to finish the syllabus, rather than
educating. The average teaching time in a public school is around 25
hours a week; each class varying from 50-60 minutes. This overloads the
students and brings in them an attitude where they only study to get a
degree. In an international school the teaching time is just 16 hours. In
most of the schools, the students are taught only four days a week. They
make sure the students don't get drained out. This not only will help the
student to perform well, but also gives the faculty an adequate time to
prepare for every lecture.   What exists in people's mind is that they
think international schools are often too costly. It should be understood
that there's a reason behind the fee structure. Food is one big factor to
be considered. In India, it is a common practice for students to ignore
the importance of hygienic living. International schools serve meals of
high standards. The time provided for lunch is also higher when compared
to public schools.   This is one of the most important features of an
international school. Students get to learn about different culture,
language, religion and race. It helps build a good community and a
friendly environment. This also helps an individual to thrive living in
any part of the world irrespective of the people there.   International
schools Bangalore offer K-12 education. It is recorded that this
education system shares the majority of the educational market in India.
IB international schools Bangalore have also adapted to this system.
