Our Middle Years Programme focuses on the cognitive, emotional and spiritual development of 11 to 14 year-olds.
We cater to the educational needs of private secondary school students in Japan from different diaspora. They have the choice between Indian (CBSE) and International (Cambridge) curricula which cater to the learning styles of different groups of students.
Both insist on academic excellence through rigour as well as holistic development through introduction of skills-based and personality grooming education weaved into the curricula. Below is a detailed guide on secondary school fees and admissions.
Our Bridge Programme is an important feature which allows our students to start at any time during the school term and receive the assistance they need to catch up with their peers. Rest assured that your child will be learning with his/her classmates as quickly as possible after their secondary school admission.
This specialised programme exists to help students of all grade levels make up for lost time, complete important lessons and classwork, and catch up academically with their regular class.
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.
Best secondary schools host 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 like a Japanese middle school alongside allowing 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 the Indian Curriculum, assessments include two formative tests each term, one mid-term test and one final term examination.
For International Curriculum, assessments include ongoing formative tests throughout the term, bookended with two term-end examinations in the end.
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.
An array of events and activities all year round at top secondary schools, provide our students a platform to showcase their skills, as well as keep them engaged and involved in many social events like sports, arts, community service etc.
Under the idea of our 9GEMS holistic learning framework, we organise age-appropriate events to allow students to explore inherent talents from sports excellence, to performing arts, to entrepreneurship and community service.
