Every country has its guidelines, system, and curriculum for the education department. But something that makes most foreign education systems different from ours is their system of segregating the different branches of schools and colleges: Primary schools, Middle Schools, and High schools.
To understand the reason behind this foreign system of education, we must first critically analyze our own education system.
A 10th-grade student in India is treated on the same lines as a 5th grader in regards to school timings, examination patterns, facilities, etc. In some cases, even the faculties are shared between the two!
This system prevents the students from feeling the air of maturity that should come with age and makes them feel stuck in a rut.
Thus the reasons behind this segregation system are to:
Different branches segregated appropriately imply the proper segregation of the syllabus and demands for suitable faculty for the same. Every branch has students sharing the same mentality and age which makes it easier for the teachers to carry on with their lessons. The overall syllabus synchronizes well with the respective branch, making the process of learning intriguing.
Unlike our education system, students there don't have to live the same school life for ten continuous years. They don't have to mug up their lessons and appear for two to three exams per year to get promoted to the next standard. There are three to four branches with a different outline of syllabus, way of teaching, and mode of testing. They have to graduate each phase of learning and are appreciated for the same.
The primary branches focus majorly on fundamental concepts and shape the students into rational beings. It is only after they reach high school that competitive academic stuff is introduced to them. They focus on both the wants and needs of the students. Like Japan, a country leading in the field of technology doesn't fail to instill moral values in its students along with proper scientific and technical studies.
With simplified education and a desirable way of teaching, it is obvious that students will excel in every field. We are all by-products of our environment. The segregation between different education branches helps in fostering the right productive environment for the students.
As mentioned earlier, this system exists for more than one reason and each reason has its own benefit for the students.
What we may label as an ordinary hobby of no use, the foreign education system offers official degree courses in it, invests in special schools and institutions for hobbies like sports, music, dance, etc. No wonder why artists and sportsmen are more successful in foreign countries. Unlike us, they don't promote monotony in career choices. Students are free and are encouraged to opt for studies of their choice.
The gap in branches promotes the teaching of lessons appropriate for students of that specific age group. They are introduced to the things they are capable of understanding as per their age. This leads to a better understanding of the lessons taught and doesn't let anything go in vain.
All of a sudden after finishing school where the teachings were limited to bookish knowledge, students there are not asked to make decisions related to their career. They are offered numerous options from various fields to choose from. Not only does this prevent monotony, but also makes the students decisive enough to make major life choices.
Education and future careers are leading reasons that affect the mental health of students. This education system is so simplified, lenient and student-friendly that it to a great extent doesn't mentally affect the students. In all aspects- teaching, careers, homework, etc. - it is flexible and beneficial for the students.
These are just a few of the numerous benefits that the student-friendly and efficient nature of this foreign education system provide to the students. This is not only adored in their countries but also appreciated and desired by many nations like ours.
But there is a really popular school out there that is known for implementing this foreign branch system of education - Silverline Prestige School. While borrowing the best parts of other foreign systems, they haven’t forgotten the significance of our own, Indian values and moral system. They have strived and perfected a combination of the best of both worlds.

Apart from having made outstanding investments in their infrastructure and facilities, their syllabus and curriculum have also been curated after thorough research and puts together various subjects and focuses on the encouragement and improvement of skills like Creative Thinking, Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, Analytical Skills, and Information Processing & Organising.
Thus, the primary branch helps in developing the necessary skills in the age group of 2.5 - 10 years while the senior branch takes over from there and finishes the holistic education of the students.
