Know More

Data Analytics at GIIS

GIIS Tokyo has a unique methodology to check the academic and non-academic progress of our students. We have devised methods and installed platforms which give us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.

Data Analytics in academics at GIIS is called the 7S method, in which teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development. This 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 an assessment is done which helps students understand their strengths and weaknesses.

Cambridge IGCSE Curriculum-Diverse Learning Environment

The IGCSE program is phenomenal for students to explore new areas of learning and build on the groundwork for advanced studies. IGCSE schools spend a significant amount of time bringing new cultural perspectives and increasing the diversity of the learning environment. 

Our teaching methodologies help students to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. IGCSE programs also promote a vibrant learning atmosphere for students to relish their academic journey. 

With 70+ subjects and 30 different languages, IGCSE has an incredible framework that makes students intellectually active and culturally aware.

English As Second Language ( ESL) 

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. 
Unlike our English Language Support (ELS) programme, English as a Second Language (ESL) is offered as a subject within the Cambridge Upper Secondary programme at GIIS Tokyo.
