You might be asking yourself: Is it worth choosing international schools offering the Canadian curriculum?

These concerns are legitimate. You want your children to be happy and have the best possible future.

These 7 reasons may convince you that international schools are worth your time!

1. International Schools Prepare Your Child for The Future

International Schools were once the homes of diplomats and expatriates’ children. Today, they offer a great alternative for parents looking to help their children adapt to the global world. Our school is an International Baccalaureate World School (IB), which was established to provide education for all students in order to be global citizens and future leaders.

2. International Schools Recognize the Importance Of Providing Individual Attention on Every Child

International Schools are more than just a source of inspiration and a pathfinder. They also provide knowledge to families who share the same values. International Schools tend to provide students with the essential life skills and knowledge that they need to make their own path to excellence. International Schools are increasingly aware that learning is not always in the classroom. International Schools encourage experiential learning through reflection and hands-on experience.

3. You can send your child every morning to a caring, multicultural community

The average child spends almost as much time at school than they do at home. It can quickly add up, to 10 000 hours. It is equally important to have a caring community where your child feels confident about themselves and can make a difference in the world. International Schools offer more than a curriculum. They provide intercultural competence as well as opportunities for collaborative and inspiring learning. They instill respect, social responsibility and resilience.

4. Global Education opens the door to a global, technological world

To be a global citizen, one must have critical thinking skills and technological literacy in order to join the global community of learners. International schools are built to foster learning and are equipped with the most up-to-date educational technology. Schools such as ours offer 1:1 devices, deep learning, and technology-trained teachers and staff to incorporate technology into everyday practices, teaching, learning, and living.

5. Your Child will Feel the International Spirit

Our International School is a beacon for internationality and diversity. Our school has 61 nationalities and 50 mother languages. We also have teachers from 29 countries. Teachers and staff from around the world come together to share their knowledge and create a community that enriches diversity.

6. International students learn to communicate with the world

Most International Schools use English as their common school language. They offer language programs to help students improve their language and culture. It is essential to communicate with the world in multiple languages. Victoria, a Grade 5 BIS student, said, “It’s important to get to understand other people’s perspectives and other cultures and to learn how to accept other people quickly.”

7. International Schools Offer A Variety of After School Activities

Are you a Debate king or a drama king? International Schools offer many After School Activity programs, including competitive sports, outstanding Arts education, outdoor activities and eco-projects. These extracurricular activities can open many doors. They can improve academic performance, promote physical fitness, and provide a structured, safe environment for children of working parents.
