QSI Benin - Isha Kalwani

Isha Kalwani at QSI International School of Benin


Isha Kalwani transferred from English International School in Cotonou to experience an international education from the American perspective to better prepare herself to enter a US university. Not only did she appreciate QSI International School of Benin's American resources and style of curriculum, but she also grew to enjoy the mastery learning approach. She learned that cramming and learning to replicate subject knowledge was never enough.

She had to study the material well enough to handle analytical questions, assessments, and projects to be assessed at A-level. Her teachers pushed her intellectually in a positive way. She believes this helped her develop as a student. Isha's advisor, Mrs. Sedmak, assisted her with managing her timelines for college applications and steered her to the Common App. She was happy with the results of her college applications. Isha was accepted to
