Why more and more parents are opting for International Baccalaureate?

An increasing number of parents are now choosing International Baccalaureate (IB) programs over the state curriculum options. This trend is particularly strong in the senior second year, where the IB Diploma has almost tripled in popularity since the early 2000s.
Globally, the IB is now offered in nearly 4000 schools across 148 countries. Its reach has been extended beyond the senior years to offer primary and middle year programs, and a vocational career-related certificate.
Once considered the preserve of international schools, IB is an emerging rival to state-based certificates – such as the CBSE and ICSE boards. The IB programs are offered in a range of public and private schools.
But what is it about IB that makes it such an alluring option for parents? And how is it different from existing state-based curricula and certificate?

We analyzed parent testimonials on why they choose IB?

Here’s what they have to say:

“Holistic Development for future”
Jatin Shah, father of Nisarg Shah from Mumbai, India talks about how IB helped his son follow his passion of transforming lives through biomedical innovation. Nisarg is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). “Nisarg was always passionate about science, research and potential for revolutionary change that it can bring. His education through IB further helped fuel this passion. In school, the flexibility of IB program really allowed him to sample a wide variety of topics and make an informed choice for his major. Choosing the IB program for Nisarg was one of the best decisions we took!” says Jatin Shah delighted with his son’s successful education and the glorious years to come.

“Inquiry-based learning
“Our experience of the IB started as our kids first entered international schools in grade 5 and 7. With my background in education, I was fascinated by the program’s presentations which seemed to pour content into all those theoretical concepts we learned in teaching seminars. Inquiry-based learning, teachers as partners, creativity, all joined by the charm of the resourceful International school promised an educational paradise.”, says Dr. Taly Goran, a long-time traveler between nations and continents, a relocation specialist and mother of two adolescents.

“Global opportunities”
Traci and Peter Pietra from Washington, USA, while hunting for the best education for their three young children were attracted to the IB emphasis on global understanding. “IB success means not only admission to global universities (with 18% higher chances) but also scholarships and even course credits. But beyond the rates of college admissions, it seems that the IB program prepares its students for the world of tomorrow. And in what seems to be a better way compared to many other programs.”, Traci said.
