Our academic teaching methodology can be compared to a spiral structure which rises up in a systematic manner, as well as burrowing deeper down. This concept - of rising higher and going deep - has been adopted in our academic structure which gives our students a good balance between imagination and understanding.
Our academic add-ons are programmes that give additional boosts to a student's learning curve through targeted studies, helping them focus on additional areas and concepts at no extra cost.
We provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) related material that helps students understand key concepts in the subject by creating working models of these concepts; use online tools like HeyMath! to hone their mathematical skills and conduct detailed assessments through which the teachers understand every child’s strengths and weakness in particular subjects.
Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs) include honing inherent skills in students like performing arts, leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation. These activities balance the learning environment in the school and allow students to be well-rounded individuals who can excel at anything, and be ready to face the world as global citizens. There are also course enrichment activities conducted in class after each concept (like quizzes, group projects or short tests).
For our students, the rigour of academics is well-balanced by proper exposure to sports through Co-curricular activities, physical education and a Cricket Academy.
Students go through a number of assessments in a year
• For Grade 1 and 2, there are four assessments in the form of tests. Answer sheets are marked with grades.
• For Grade 3 to 5, there are two major assessments in September and March - termed half yearly and yearly assessments. They also have two periodic tests in May and November.
There are also bite-sized assessments conducted in class after each concept (like quizzes, group projects or short tests).
We make sure that parents are involved in the education and growth of their children at every step.
All information about the student is shared with the parent through our customised portal - myGIIS - which acts as a communication platform between the two sides.
Newsletters and emails are sent periodically, while each parental query is responded to within 24 hours – unless it is punctuated by a weekend, public holiday or vacation.
Over and above academic excellence, our award-winning 9GEMS framework promotes values like discipline, creativity, sportsmanship, leadership and respect – many based on universally admired teachings.
This enriched learning experience helps develop our students into refined, morally upstanding citizens of the world; and better prepares them for the myriad challenges of their adult lives.
