My education began in an Indian Catholic School, in ICSE. ICSE is a strong curriculum, but known for rote learning.  To gain a different perspective, in the 9th Standard (MYP4), I moved to an International Baccalaureate (IB) School. As a research-oriented student, I truly appreciate the IB curriculum.
