Our Secondary School is more than the sum of its parts - which include a comprehensive curricula, assessments, value-added programmes, events and many other array of activities, that allow students to grow into well-rounded individuals.
The Secondary School also fosters 21st century skills preparing the students for their journey towards a great college education.
Academic Support Activities
We aim to build a rapport between teachers and students to provide an ideal learning environment which is interactive and holistic. The variety of academic and activity-based programmes we provide enrich our student values and knowledge.
They include everything from theme-based morning assemblies which dwell on topics of national and international importance; Leadership Lecture Series wherein students interact with industry experts and famous personalities for inspiration and drive; competitions and field-trips which encourage healthy rivalry and help physical, mental and spiritual growth; and lastly inter-house activities which emphasise programmes that nurture holistic development of students.
These exposures within and outside the classroom help students explore new areas of learning.
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.

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.

External Examinations & Assessments
Assessment in the secondary school is based on the assessment policy of CBSE, which puts a 20% weightage on formative and 80% weightage on summative assessment.
Students take the All India Secondary School Examination (AISSE) conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education at the end of Grade X.
We provide our students various platforms to improve and polish the knowledge gained in classrooms.
We work in conjunction with reputed national and international educational organisations to facilitate student participation in various exams as per their choice and interest. There are Reading Assessments, Olympiads in Math, English, Cyber, Science etc., Detailed Assessment, CAT4, Question a Day etc.
Our emphasis on external examination for every student from Grade 1 onwards for Science, Math and English is to ensure that the students get something extra in their learning journey to strengthen their academic foundation.
Communication and Interaction
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.
9 GEMS(TM) Holistic Educational Framework
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.
School Events and Activities
An array of events and activities all year round 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.
