In a world that is becoming increasingly interconnected, our global community comes together with the same hopes and aspirations for children to become happy, caring, healthy and successful citizens. At the International Village School, students are prepared for the modern world with an appreciation of multiple perspectives and cross-cultural understanding. IVS enables our pupils to embrace experiences, take responsibility and embrace change.
Located in a calm and serene part of the city, the world class facility of the International Village School shares its boundary with over 100 acres of the bird sanctuary at Sholinganallur, a designated reserve forest by the Government of India. Our quiet neighbourhood that is centrally located is accessible from the East Coast Road (ECR) and the IT Highway of Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR).
We believe a truly international school not only has international teachers, students, curriculum in a world-class facility, but it also embeds an international perspective that embraces a global community.
The belief that education is a shared responsibility is an important part of our philosophy. Learning occurs through engagement with other children, with adults and with the larger community. It takes a village to raise a child.
Our village approach is built on fostering relationships of open communication, a desire to know one another, and work together to provide the best care and experiences for our children.
I am delighted to welcome you to the International Village School, Chennai.
The wise old proverb "It takes a village to raise a child" is reflected in the philosophy of our school. We believe the true nature of education is a collaboration between child, parent, school and community. This is even more poignant in today’s fast-paced and technology focused world. The village is now global and we must prepare our children to be future leaders of it.
Therefore, our most important endeavour is to facilitate a lifelong love of learning in our children. This will enable them to be creative, critical-thinking problem solvers and to be equipped with the confidence and skills to thrive in the modern world.
We are pleased to announce that within our first two years of operations we have achieved International Baccalaureate World school status for the Primary years Program effective from June 2020. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
In comparing top IGCSE schools with IVS - a top IB school in Chennai, it is important to note the fundamental difference between the two. Rather than teaching in terms of content, top international IB schools like International Village School, teach in terms of concepts. This results in our pupils gaining higher order thinking and conceptual understanding. This enables them to apply the knowledge gained in the appropriate setting and the skills to use it. IVS is also an international school with pupils and teachers from around the world. This strengthens the cultural diversity leading to international mindedness and understanding.
As a top school with IB framework, IVS provides a Virtual Learning Experience (VLE) which covers a full educational provision for all ages from Early childhood 2+ to Grade 7. Our expert teachers deliver online lessons on all subjects and Units of Inquiry. This is supported with our online learning management software and enhanced via our Virtual Classrooms which are functional for VLE and onsite learning. Our Virtual Classrooms are an interactive portal that facilitates seamless transition from onsite learning to VLE across all grades. Our Learners are fully engaged with their learning throughout the year, whether online or onsite.
When you visit our international school in Chennai, you will experience the family friendly environment which we pride ourselves to say is ‘small enough to care, but big enough to inspire’. Your child will be recognised as a unique individual and a significant member of the IVS family.
We openly welcome you to come and see for yourself the wonderful family atmosphere and attention to detail that will allow us to ensure your child meets their full potential. Please feel free to attend any of our open days or make an appointment for a personal tour of our school.
