As an American, brought up in the Western education system, I am proud to say that the WhiteHouse World School brings child education on par with, if not exceeding, many American institutions. What I see developing here at our school is on the forefront of international education reform — a shift away from rote memorization, toward more critical thinking and practical application based studies. By diversifying the curriculum to include CRE classes, Karkhana, discussions, reading periods, and cultural evens, i fell confident that our students will come out on top, able to compete in a globalized society where innovation is the key to success. And most importantly, they will have the ethical and vital skills to not only found a good career but a good life as well.
