In a growing global community, more and more people are leaving their native countries to find better business opportunities abroad. Given the differences it rates of currency, regional needs, culture, language, and untapped opportunities, opportunities for growth no longer need to be found on one’s home island. For single business people, travelling is a challenge and does not present any sort of problem whatsoever. But for young families with children, the children’s education is something to be considered when the family uproots itself to settle in another country.
Thankfully, there are plenty of schools in Cambodia, such as the Invictus International School, that cater to the international community and present curriculums that rival even the best of what America and the UK has to offer. The best international school however, is still a title that has yet to be awarded to a specific school by an accredited body of international educators. But if one truly needed to know, there are plenty of schools that have been accredited by the IBO and these schools offer the best in the British curriculum with the added benefit of teaching a second language.
Universities these days put a premium on international learning and they appreciate students who have a better world-view than what the “home-schooled” students are limited to. The best international school however is still up for the parents to decide for their kids, but they need not worry as almost every country in the world has an institution that caters to just this need.
Most international schools have a higher population of expatriate students or foreigners compared to native islanders; sometimes as much as eighty percent of the student population is of foreign origin. Even the teachers at these institutions are usually imported from the UK or the United States and have English as their first language and the island’s native tongue as a second language..
The best international school has a spacious campus and facilities that are conducive to a student’s learning. Computers are at a one to one ratio per student and the libraries are well stocked with classics as well as more modern prints of any topic that a student may take interest in. Playing fields and leisure areas are also large and spacious and extra-curricular activities are also promoted here. The best thing however about the best international school is that once a student graduates from this institution, he or she can be accepted to a college or university practically anywhere in the world.
