GIIS CBSE School in Tokyo NishiKasai has a unique methodology to check the academic progress of students. Devised by educational laureates and GIIS teachers, it stands us apart from the crowd. Data Analytics in academics at GIIS os called The 7S Assessment which gives us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.

Teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development which includes school, segment, section, subject, subject-teacher, student and summary. Data is then studied by the teacher to determine progress of the student in all areas of development, and set customized learning paths based on their strengths and weaknesses.

Few top reasons to choose GIIS

English Language Support (ELS)

01

Program Context

“It takes multiple years for English learners to gain a high enough level of language proficiency to perform on par with their native English‐speaking peers. English learners cannot wait until they are fluent in English to learn grade‐level content. Instead, they must continue to develop their math and reading skills as well as their knowledge of social studies and science, even while learning English.”
Source : educationnorthwest

At GIIS Tokyo campuses English proficiency is of the utmost importance. We recognize our students’ efforts and want to make sure they have the support necessary to become fluent global communicators. With that purpose in mind, in the year 2020 we introduced an English Language Support (ELS) programme at GIIS Tokyo.

02

Program Overview

The mission of our ELS programme is clear, to assist our non-native English speakers as well as those students who may require additional support in order to help them acquire the desired level of English language proficiency.

The ELS programme is an added-value service, i.e., free of cost and available in our Nishi Kasai Campus for students of Grade 1-5

GIIS has several different curricula (CBSE, CLSP, IGCSE IBPYP and the IBDP) in its campuses across Tokyo and each of these curricula have  specific frameworks and pedagogical approaches, the ELS model has been tailored to suit each of those curricula.

What you need to know about second  language learning :

1. Children can take up to ten years to become fluent in a second language
2. Children learn second languages like they learn their first -speaking and listening followed by reading and writing
3. While children are diverse and learn in many different ways, there are recognisable steps towards fluency that can be roughly divided into five stages. 
4.Children may work in more than one stage depending on the context, and learning is not necessarily a steady acquisition, but rather a dynamic process of ever-changing needs.
5. The role of translanguaging (using the mother tongue to better understand the second language) is vitally important.
6. Children must be supported in the continued growth of their first language in order to better understand their second.

Programme Structure

We constantly work towards creating a relaxed learning atmosphere that helps students overcome their shyness and where they are encouraged to express themselves using whichever linguistic means they already have, as well as the varied language inputs taught during the ELS lessons.

The ELS lessons do not replace the student’s normal English lessons (as a first language).

As long as we can, we always try to keep the maximum number of students per class at 10.

Children are identified as in need of ESL support in a number of ways:

1. Identified during admissions
2. Identified by parents
3. Identified during classes

Identification will include the type of ELS support they will likely need and will be part of an ongoing conversation with homeroom teacher, ELS support teacher and families.
