Redbridge International Academy has been so far the best school in Bangalore I have put my son in. He is currently an 8th grader and this is his third school. We checked out around six to seven schools for him before deciding on Redbridge. We came to know about the institution through a friend and later on checked for Redbridge International Academy Bangalore on internet. Since the reviews were good, we paid a visit to the school just to cross check before actually putting him there. Once we saw the school, we were convinced that Redbridge school reviews were not hyped and that it would certainly be the ideal choice. This is his second year there and we absolutely do not have any regrets or complaints.
Why has Redbridge become so popular?
What caught our eye immediately was its infrastructure. They had spacious and well lit classrooms equipped with Smart Board and all kinds of modern technologies, various recreational rooms like pottery rooms, dance and drama studio, music rooms with different instruments, fully quipped computer and robotics labs. They also had facilities for various sports and games such as football, cricket, basketball, hockey, badminton, volleyball, throw ball, athletics, skating, karate, snooker, table tennis, carom, squash and yoga.
This clearly showed the importance they gave to co-curricular activities. And I realized I was not wrong, within around three months of my son joining there. They did give equal weight-age to other activities along with studies. They focused on the overall development of their students rather than concentrating on bookish knowledge alone. My son had greatly improved his social and oration skills. He also started bringing in a lot of moral values in his behaviour. Probably because of the stress free environment there, his marks started getting much better.
It was described in one of the Redbridge International Academy reviews as to how well they ensured their students’ safety. This was true indeed. There was CCTV cameras installed everywhere, adequate number of securities throughout the school, mandatory id card system, etc. There were even options to track the bus route from the parent’s phone. This hugely impressed me as safety was my top concern when it came to my son.
The curriculum offered included both ICSE as well as IGCSE which makes the students work a little harder and gain practical knowledge. This has clearly worked in good stead as far as my son is concerned. Instead of mugging up the information, they try to apply it in their real life situations, which I believe will greatly help him when he starts working in future.
Boarding facilities are also provided here. So just in case one of us has to move out, due to job requirements, we would not have to be worried about shifting his school again. We have already changed his school thrice and wouldn’t want him to go through the painstaking process of adjusting to a new environment once again.
