Vadodara, Gujarat based Vibgyor high school has received the British Council international school award (ISA) for 'outstanding development of the international dimension in the curriculum'. The award is valid for three years, starting from 2015 till 2018. The school will be felicitated at an award function that will be held later this year.
ISA is a global benchmarking scheme that accredits schools and supports them in embedding international learning into the curriculum.
It is an award given to schools in recognition and appreciation of their exceptional level of support for cultivating global citizenship amongst youth and enriching teaching and learning experience.
ISA award was piloted in India in 2003 and today more than 1,200 schools have been accredited. The range of schools participating in ISA varies from the well-resourced private schools to government schools from rural areas and schools for the less advantaged communities.
"At our school, we focus on experiential and integrated learning by organising frequent domestic and international trips for students to inculcate thorough and practical understanding of the subject. Such exercises aid in securing achievements like ISA award, which adds to the school's credibility for providing education as per international standards," said Dilip George, principal of Vibgyor High, Vadodara.
