    Default Comparing school curriculum CBSE/ICSE vs IB/IGCSE

    I have recently relocated to Dubai and would like to select school for my 6 year old son. There are various curriculum schools here ICSE, IGCSE, IB, American schools.

    I am in a dilemma choosing the good school curriculum, need your suggestions and comments about my observations as I thought UK moms would have better idea about IB/IGCSE similar to National curriculum of England


    Indian ICSE/CBSE schools

    Pros:
    - have lot more rigor, breadth especially in science and maths
    - regular homeworks, tests, exams make them better prepared for competitive world
    - exposure to indian culture in studies and cocurricular

    Cons:
    - teaching methodology might tend to be rote oriented
    - focus is on exams so kids might have difficulty in applying concepts, overall personality development, life skills, confidence.
    - sorrounded by indian kids and teachers comparatively english fluency might not be so eloquent as natives


    American/British schools IB or IGCSE

    Pros:
    - practical oriented, focus is on application of concepts
    - surrounded by native english kids and teachers so better fluency in english
    - exposure to multicultural environment right from beginning might lead to better life skills as a grown up
    - better exposure to cocurricular development and sports

    Cons:
    - low load on home works, tests and optional exams will lead to sudden shock during entrance exams after 12th like SAT or IIT
    - cultural issues of western world might have adjustments issues with us parents with eastern mindset
