    Thank you, this was helpful. I think you also missed Canadian International School Bangladesh. They follow a Nova Scotia curriculum and are accredited by the Canadian government. Maybe create an article promoting English Medium schools that promote other curriculums, and not just IGCSE, CIS, O and A levels.

    Here is CISB website if you’d like to check: https://www.canadaeducationbd.com
