What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home
country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?
We have lived in three different locations. Bangladesh, Singapore and India. My kids have always studied in an International School following an IB curriculum. I remember when we relocated to India 4 years back from Singapore my daughter was in Prep 2 and although the curriculum's was the same the level at INDUS was much higher. She had lovely teachers to help her cope with the discrepancies and got her to the level of the class in a mere 6 months. She could read and write with fluency. Kudos to the dedicated staff at INDUS.

There are both informal and formal social activities available to parents.

INDUS has worked wonders for my two kids who have studied in this school from their inception. My daughter will now go to Grade 5 and son to Grade 3. The school is a good blend of academic and non academic growth, where the envirnment encourages growth, warmth, sensitivity and creativity. I am really impressed.
