I am certain you are aware of the Startup School that is running in parallel with the main schools. The first session which was experimental will be closing by end-May. Those who join this programme, which is primarily experiential and involves about 4 hours a week only, is in addition to their IB curriculum. Apart from a select faculty, the students are mentored by parent-mentors from each school. They are successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
The experiment has been hugely successful. In particular, the academic performance of the students has improved. This is attributed to the skill sets to organise and prioritise one’s work, in addition to the habit of self-directed learning.
Our students are doing well. A boy from grade 9 in Indus Pune has been felicitated by a person no less than Ratan Tata, for his contribution to the Earth. A young girl student from Indus Bangalore has been invited by the Silicon Valley’s most prestigious event - TiE Con 21, to address 10,000 entrepreneurs on her journey of innovation and entrepreneurship. There are many others, and space does not permit me to include them.
There are three direct implications for those who will graduate from Indus and the Startup School: (1) Improved academic performance; (2) coveted placement choices in Ivy League colleges and universities; and (3) the option of starting a business immediately after school. I would like parents to encourage their children to take advantage of this great once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
With warm regards,
As an unsure fresher, looking for a job as a teacher at a good school, being selected through campus recruitment and getting accepted into ITARI was an absolute blessing for me and my family. The PGCIE training I received was transformational. The faculty at ITARI are not only experts but warm, inspiring individuals who have, in a short time, impacted my life and career positively. Through ITARI I have been recruited as a teacher at Indus International School, Pune. I cherish my job, have got a great salary with perks. My students enjoy my teaching. I remain indefinitely indebted to the institute that I respect and love so dearly.
WARM, INSPIRING FACULTY
ITARI has provided me an engaging learning environment which is both enjoyable and informative. I am currently studying the PGDIE programme this year. I`m a boarder from outstation and live on the school campus. The high academic standing of ITARI faculty and school mentors make the PGDIE an extraordinary full-time teacher training programme, unlike any other in the country. The curriculum and assessment are holistic. What particularly strikes me is the perfect balance between theory and practice.
PERFECT BALANCE OF THEORY & PRACTICE
The Cambridge International Diploma (CIDTL, UK) gave me the flexible option of working and studying at the same time. The fee was reasonable. The workshops were very informative, thanks to the brilliant faculty members; the facilities, library, and logistic support were excellent. I was able to complete all the research modules prescribed by Cambridge International Examinations, get a distinction, and get a job at a reputed international school through ITARI placements. Many of my batchmates also got jobs in good schools including Indus. Thank you team ITARI, you have made all the difference in my career.
EXTREMELY INFORMATIVE WEBSITES
There are very few organisations today, wherein you are made to feel like you belong! I have been associated with Indus International School for more than five years now. I have been an Indus parent, a demanding member of the PAC, a PGDIE trainee at ITARI, and now after a rigorous one-year training with internship finally recruited as a teacher at Indus International School, Bangalore. It`s been worth it, and I am where I want to be. Thank you ITARI for challenging me to raise the bar, for your unflinching support, and for being my home away from home!.
