In today’s increasingly complex world, the importance of Internationalism in education keeps growing too. Education today is the synonym of globalization. In today’s fast changing world, International Education has become a necessity rather than a luxury. The world places high demands of cultural adaptability on the young people today. TIPS Education helps the youth to achieve this.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The Indian Public School, Erode is an authorized IB PYP World School.

Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (Gr.6 to 8)

The Benefits of a Subject Based Approach
A good exposure and engagement in a variety of subjects during the age of 11-16 gives students an indispensable intellectual toolkit. Subject based syllabuses allow for much more than the transmission of knowledge necessary for further study or work. They promote meaningful engagement in real problems, and help develop high-level skills that students can apply in unfamiliar situations. Using the ‘discipline’ and approach of an individual subject, thinking about the world can be rigorous and demanding.
The world looks very different to a biologist than it does to a historian. The same world looks even more exciting if you can look at it from a range of perspectives. They encourage creativity, provoke reflection and promote joined up thinking.
