Take A Close Look At The Benefits Of Studying In An IB School

As students start to plan their future, choosing the right curriculum is often a difficult decision to make with so many options out there. IB (International Baccalaureate) curriculum is one of the curriculums gaining ground these days due to their concept-driven and inquiry-based approach of learning and teaching. As a parent, you are bound to have your own set of doubts whether this curriculum is going to be the right for your child, and that’s completely alright. At the end of the day, your decision will determine your child’s future, and one wrong decision could limit his/her options for what and where to study in the coming years. The question is which one is the best fit for their abilities? And which one will more likely lead to a good degree? Fortunately, there is potentially a pathway for everyone in view of so many options catering for different abilities, requirements and ambitions.

IB offers programme to students ranging from 3 years to 19 years of age. It is categorized into three different programmes namely

  1. IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP),
  2. IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP), and
  3. IB Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Wide Range Of Subjects- There’s an incredible breadth of study: with six subjects at Key Stage 5, as opposed to the usual four subjects chosen at A Level, which provides your kid enough room to choose from a huge variety of subjects giving them a chance to learn different things, thus helping to stimulate students to develop analytical and critical skills to apply them in real-world situations.

The IB program serves as one of the prime drivers of the first-rate education that Singapore is known for. In Singapore, you need not look further than the schools whose students consistently top global IB exams like perennial front runner ACS Independent school, along with Hwa Chong International School and St. Joseph’s Institution, among others.

Holistic Approach- The IB programmes emphasise education beyond the confines of the classroom, focusing on cultivating good habits for life and understanding the cultural difference in the world. Your kid trains outside the box and develops an inquisitive mind, which encourages them to become the finest version of themselves.

Recognised Globally- One of the most important benefits of admitting your child in an IB school is that the programmes lay emphasis on international mindedness and help students to develop a unique set of attitudes, skills, and opinions they need to succeed at university and life beyond, which increases their chances to study in the top universities around the world.

In today’s globalised landscape, what could be a better fit with a global world than a global school? This serves as the most important benefit that students can gain from IB programmes. Many students struggle to cope with the IB curriculum on their own in light of the rigorous nature of IB in Singapore. IB (International Baccalaureate) programmes popularity is proliferating, which has led to immense competition, and students have to up their performance to distinguish themselves from their peers. Private IB home tuition can help you with that.
