Why ICSE Board and Why Greenwood

In India, particularly in Bangalore, there are numerous options when it comes to schools.Choosing the right school for your child can be daunting, yet it cannot be overlooked as your kids’ future is at stake.

Before shortlisting schools, let’s understand how the education system works in India. Currently there are three mainstream board systems namely CBSE (Central Board of Education), ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) and IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education), which are popular and most preferred by the parents across the country. Each board is unique and differ in their curriculum, functionality, abilities and standards.

In this article, let’s see why most parents prefer ICSE over CBSE.

ICSE emphasizes on a holistic education, insisting on a child’s overall growth. Hence, it has a more balanced syllabus compared to CBSE.  Vast and comprehensive in nature, the syllabus is structured and aimed to give due importance to practical knowledge and analytical skills in students. Apart from having the flexibility of selecting subjects of their choice, students get to study them in detail. Perhaps the biggest advantage enjoyed by the students of ICSE board is the competitive edge that they develop in English. Recognized by many foreign education systems, ICSE is also best suited for parents who might have to relocate to different countries.
