The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a renowned pedagogy which prepares students from Classes 1 to 12 for competitive examinations while facilitating entry into the world's leading universities. This approach to holistic education enables students to focus effectively on academics, as well as pursue their interests in sports and extracurricular activities.
An interdisciplinary teaching at GIIS gives students a powerful opportunity to apply knowledge, principles, and values to more than one academic subject simultaneously. CBSE’s global curriculum comprises built-in activities and exercises which promote cross-curricular learning.
This approach supports two important GIIS goals:
Teachers leverage this method into an enriched learning experience by helping students more easily connect with the material. In addition to learning how to surmount demanding academic rigours, students also learn how to apply skills learned in the classroom to real-world challenges.
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.
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.
For our students, the rigour of academics is well-balanced by proper exposure to sports through extracurricular activities, physical education and Gold Squad.
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.
Our School Counsellor works with students, parents and teachers in a variety of ways to provide support to the student wherever necessary.
He/She is a member of the school’s student welfare initiative. Only with the consent of parents, the counsellor will provide requisite information to teachers that will assist them to meet the needs of the student in a better manner.
There are a number of ways the counsellor assists students. It is done through:
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.
