Coming back to India after 10 years was not an easy decision for us. After spending so may years in London, my son was not ready to shift to India. Our basic concern was his education. Right kind of education is very important for children. Being a parent, I wanted best education for my son.
After coming to India I had discussions with many teachers, professors and even parents. The topic for most of the discussions was which board is the best. As expected there were different viewpoints, so the decision became more difficult. While there were some parents who were not even aware of the different education boards in India, there were some who were not able to decide which will be the best for future education of their children.
The last resort was internet. I started searching for different types of education boards in India. While we have all heard about CBSE and ICSE, there was something that caught my attention. It was NWAC. NWAC is the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), which was earlier named the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools.
NWAC is an organization that accredits all types of schools. It even accredits schools that offer distance education in the northwestern United States. Previously an independent entity based in Boise, Idaho, it is now a part of AdvancED.
I was overjoyed to find such a brand in India. I felt it as a big achievement. The reason was that now being in India, my son can get education in a school that runs on International standards of excellence. NWAC in India is truly something I was looking for. I was lucky to find global levels of schooling and education in India. I even looked at some of the NWAC Board Results 2014 and Northwest Accreditation Commission Results 2015. Students have really done great.
Now, I started enquiring about the kind of standards and environment that NWAC accreditation offers to schools. What better than International standards that NWAC offers. I was completely satisfied – NWAC is the best choice for my son’s further education. The only thing that was now left to consider was about the NWAC approval. I had a discussion with some of the parents and they all told me that NWAC is as valid in India as CBSE. My happiness knew no bounds. I came to know that NWAC is approved by AIU (Association of Indian Universities) that falls under the Ministry of HRD.
