Creating Leaders for Life
We realise that success in the contemporary world relies not just on cognisance, but also on creativity, entrepreneurship and the ability to explore. Which is why our 9GEMS(TM) model is a truly innovative programme that uses an age-appropriate and adaptive approach to allow students to evolve as they grow.
While in other international schools in Tokyo only academic excellence is emphasised at every level, our focus is academic excellence coupled with universal values, ethics, discipline, creativity and personality development in the initial years, before shifting to academic achievement, leadership and entrepreneurial skills, and key competencies for vocational and career progression during the secondary and high school years.
Introducing the Nine Gems
We ensure excellence in academics by emphasising on imparting a curriculum which integrates best practises in education with unique teaching methodology through latest available tools. Which makes us academically one of the best international schools in Tokyo. We use collaborative, projects-based learning which allows students to learn by reading, experience and discussions. The outcome is optimised academic excellence for every student, and a lifelong learner profile to their kitty.
We believe in giving students great opportunities and facilities in indoor and outdoor sports, to bring out the sportsman in them. School sports are foundational activities for students, which can help build physical strength, mental toughness, character and collaborative nature in students. We enhance all this with data analytics which gives students an edge to excel in a sport of their choice.
Visual and Performing Arts
Through a variety of art facilities and training studios, we give our students a platform to explore their creative side. Students have talents and interests which need an outlet. Which is why GIIS Tokyo has developed a skills-based education programme where they get the apparatus and the guidance to enhance and polish their inherent talents or pick up a new skill. These basic foundational courses give students the necessary knowledge to develop a portfolio for their further education.
The importance of personality development during a student's early years cannot be understated. We are focused on cultivating various aspects of student development through a variety of well-designed programmes like critical thinking, sports, social contribution, self-expression and meditation. All these are stepping stones to a well-rounded personality of a student, and we put these foundations in place through our various programmes, initiatives and events.
Innovation and Creativity
We believe that innovative thinking and creative outputs have no age limit, which is why we encourage these skills in our students. This gem is structured to nurture creativity and innovation in students by mapping their interest areas, identifying their competencies and facilitating their growth. It encourages students to explore and embrace creative, multi-faceted strategies when problem solving.
Entrepreneurship & Leadership
Global Indian International school Tokyo programmes and events revolve around concepts of entrepreneurship and leadership among school children to help develop their skills. We invite experts and conduct bootcamps to give exposure to these concepts to our students. Interactive conversations and participation in these activities help students grow in confidence and speak passionately and authoritatively on subjects of their interest.
Universal Values and Ethics
Our emphasis is not just academic excellence unlike many schools in Tokyo, we also nurture our students emotionally and spiritually. We are guided by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi in this endeavour. Through specific elements like peace included in our curriculum and encouraging activities like yoga, we teach students to imbibe good values to build character and treat everyone with respect.
It is due to this approach that we are considered as one of the best international schools in Tokyo.
Community and Care
Through a comprehensive programme, we give our students a chance to be out and about in the community and have social interactions which will help them bond with society at large. Charity drives, community event participation, green initiatives and conservation of resources are some of the methods we encourage among students to develop their emotional and spiritual well-being.
Our Smart campuses around the world focus on giving students platforms for skill development which form an additional layer of expertise for their educational portfolio. Through various studios and programmes we ensure students learn real world skills, and through training and experience we ensure they develop soft skills to sharpen their personality. Taken together, we have students who are proficient in both.
