An international school is a school that promotes international education, in an international environment, either by adopting a curriculum such as that of the International Baccalaureate, Edexcel or Cambridge International Examinations, or by following a national curriculum different from that of the school's country of residence. These schools cater to students who are not nationals of the host country, such as the children of the staff of international businesses, international organizations, foreign embassies, missions, or missionary programs. Many local students attend these schools to learn the language of the international school and to obtain qualifications for employment or higher education in a foreign country; the first international schools were founded in the latter half of the 19th century in countries such as Japan and Turkey. Early international schools were set up for families who traveled, like children of personnel of international companies, international organisations ons, non-governmental organisationss, embassy staff.
The schools were established with the people and organisations having large interests in the hosting nation: for instance, American diplomats and missionaries set up schools to educate their children. Over time globalisation has created a market for international education. "In a global economy, it is no longer improvement by national standards alone. The best performing education systems internationally provide the benchmark for success," said Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Secretary-General José Ángel Gurría when launching the annual Education at a Glance report in Paris. Increased movement of people around the globe has created a generation of children growing up and residing in foreign countries and expanding this market for international schools that can cater for their educational needs. In April 2007 there were 4,179 English-speaking international schools, expected to set to rise with globalisation. In New Delhi worldwide entries for the University of Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education June 2009 examination session are up by 20% on the same session last year.
The strong growth confirms the status of Cambridge IGCSE as the world's, India's, most popular international curriculum for 14- to 16-year-olds, indicating that despite the global financial crises education is still a valued investment. International schooling allows children to become global citizens by providing a rigorous and comprehensive education with full immersion into multiple languages and cultures. At a conference in Italy in 2009 the International Association of School Librarianship came up with a list of criteria for describing an international school, including: Transferability of the student's education across international schools. A moving population. Multinational and multilingual student body An international curriculum. International accreditation. A transient and multinational teacher population. Non-selective student enrollment. English or French language of instruction, plus the obligation to take on at least one additional language; the most common international schools represent Education in the United Kingdom, Education in the United States or are based on curricula specially designed for international schools such as the International General Certificate of Secondary Education or the IB Diploma Programme.
These international curriculae are committed to internationalism, developing the global citizen, providing an environment for optimal learning, teaching in an international setting that fosters understanding, independence and cooperation. Like other schools, international schools teach language arts, the sciences, the arts, physical education, information technology, design technology. More recent developments for primary school include the IB Primary Years Programme. There are 3063 schools offering the international baccalaureate curriculum in the world. For expatriate families, international schools allow some continuity in education and most prefer to stay in the same curriculum for older children. Relocation services and institutions like School Choice International can help families choose the right school and curriculum for their child; the United Nations International School was established in 1947 by a group of United Nations parents to promote an international education for their children, while preserving their diverse cultural heritages.
The school was one of twelve schools who trialled the pilot International Baccalaureate Program and the school has offered it since. The school promotes the appreciation of the diversity of persons and cultures, provides an optimal environment for learning and teaching, offers a global curriculum that inspires in its students the spirit and ideals of the United Nations Charter. Following the establishment of UNIS, three other international schools around the globe were opened with a direct connection to the United Nations: Vienna International School in 1959, United Nations International School of Hanoi in 1988 and NIST International School in 1992. An international school teacher or educator is someone engaged in the education of pupils in schools other than their country of citizenship; the term refers to teachers who are teaching in pri

Model United Nations
Model United Nations known as Model UN or MUN, is an educational simulation and/or academic activity in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, the United Nations. MUN involves and teaches participants speaking and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking and leadership abilities. An extracurricular activity, some schools offer Model UN as a class, it is meant to engage students and allow them to develop deeper understanding into current world issues. Participants in Model United Nations conferences, known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries to represent, or other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body, they are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent.
At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, are sometimes recognized with awards. Model UN participants include students at middle school, high school, college/university levels, with most conferences catering to just one of these three levels. Delegates attend conferences together as delegations sent by their respective schools' or universities' Model UN clubs, though some delegates attend conferences independently. Model UN began as a series of student-led Model League of Nations simulations, it is believed that the first Model League of Nations conferences were held in the 1920s, before transitioning to Model UN after the formation of the League's successor organization, the United Nations, in 1945. Today, some Model United Nations conferences include simulations of the League of Nations among their committee offerings; the first Model United Nations was held at St. Lawrence University from 11–13 February 1949, it was initiated by Dr. Harry Reiff, Head of the History and Government Department, with the assistance of departmental colleague Otto L. George.
Dr. Reiff was a technical advisor on the United States delegation to the 1945 San Francisco Conference and the UN Organizational Conference in London in 1945-46; the 1949 St. Lawrence University Model UN conference included delegates from regional conferences and universities, including Adelphi, Champlain, Clarkson, McGill, Potsdam, St. Michael's, Vermont; the conference continued annually for many years at St. Lawrence and has been revived on the campus. Other Model UN conference were developed at Berkeley and the National Model United Nations Harvard Model United Nations, National Model United Nations as well as many other colleges and universities. In 1987, a few American exchange students founded TEIMUN in The Hague. In recent decades, Model UN has spread to East and South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa. Other major conference organizers such as Indian International Model United Nations, Harvard, THIMUN establishing additional conferences in these regions to meet burgeoning demand.
The Ivy League Model United Nations, an arm of the Model UN at the University of Pennsylvania, hosts conferences for high-school-aged delegates in India and China, as well. In order to maintain decorum, most Model UN committees use parliamentary procedure derived from Robert's Rules of Order. However, most crisis committees forgo the formality of parliamentary procedure so as to ensure smoother operation. In addition the United Nations has spearheaded efforts to introduce new Model UN rules of procedure that are more aligned with those used by the actual UN. Since there is no governing body for MUNs, each conference differs in the rules of procedure; the following rules of procedure apply to general MUNs but may not apply to every MUN: MUNs are run by a group of administrators known as the dais. A dais is headed by a Secretary-General; each committee has a chair, a member of the dais that enforces the rules of procedure. A delegate may request the committee as a whole to perform a particular action.
Documents aiming to address the issue of the committee are known as resolutions and are voted for ratification. MUN committees can be divided into three general sessions: formal debate, moderated caucus, unmoderated caucus. In a formal debate, the staff maintains a list of speakers and the delegates follow the order written on the'speaker list'. Speakers may be added to the speaker list by sending a note to the chair. During this time, delegates talk to the entire committee, they make speeches, answer questions, debate on resolutions and amendments. If there are no other motions, the committee goes back to formal debate by default. There is a time limit. In a moderated caucus, the committee goes into a recess and the rules of procedure are suspended. Anyone may speak. A vote on a motion is necessary to go into a moderated caucus. There is a comparatively shorter time limit per speech. In an unmoderated caucus, the delegates informally meet with other delegates and the staff for discussions. Resolutions are the basis of all debate.
They are considered the final results of conversations and negotiations. Resolutions must go through a draft, approval by the dais, consequent debate and modification. Participation in Model UN is meant to foster negotiation and communication skills. In addition, crisis committees, which deal wit
