Happiness Index

Our core value of having a curriculum induced with fun and happy elements makes learning a highly productive and enjoyable exercise and experience for students.

About Happiness

Happiness means knowing, believing in and loving what you’re doing. With happiness as the cornerstone of everything we do, our students learn to love not only school but also lifelong learning. We believe that no matter how relevant the curriculum might be, students need to be happy to engage and learn.

Measuring Happiness

While happiness may be both relative and subjective, it’s not unquantifiable. Because we strive to ensure optimal happiness at our schools, we measure it according to the following factors:

A questionnaire through which the happiness index is computed

Feedback from students

Testimonials from parents

Regular attendance

Positive referrals and sibling admissions

High academic performance

High level of participation in school activities

Is it working? An upward trend over the past three years among the indicators above affirm that our students are organically engaged and thereby happy. In nurturing this engagement and happiness, we’re nurturing learning.

How it works

Cultivating an environment which maximises development and delight among students is an overarching learning outcome. It involves very distinct yet interrelated factors:

1

Physical Environment

We put process effectiveness in place for highest efficiency by designing, implementing, reviewing and standardising processes across all GEOs which helps us apply for quality management system certifications.

2

Curriculum

While every outstanding school has a comprehensive and meaningful curriculum, our award-winning 9Gems model elevates learning to another level. In addition to carefully constructed syllabi, we also offer enrichment opportunities, including self-learning, peer-learning and group learning, to further engage students.

3

Faculty

Teachers who interact with the students are a key differentiator within any schooling system. Our teachers are the medium through which we nurture happiness in our students. Because we believe that each of them must understand our unique philosophy, all candidates undergo a rigorous recruitment process which factors in not only academic qualifications and experience but also attitude. Our staff members have the desire to teach, but they also have the desire to learn - not only from other adults but from the students, too.

4

Environment

The environment our students dwell in helps them in becoming emotionally secure and balanced and allows them to process and understand a lot of information happening around them. Students are exposed to a judicial mix of scholastic and co-scholastic life-enriching activities that help them enjoy multiple aspects of learning so much that coming to school every day is like an exciting journey for them to start and gain wisdom.

5

Treatment

Students love doing things when they know what they are doing and believe in it. We believe in treating every child as a distinct individual having an unmatchable personality and possessing talents we can nurture. Each campus works on various dimensions of student life, so they enjoy every part of schooling.

A great initiative by the GIIS team has been to include CCA activity. Along with virtual classroom, the CCA activities have been highly beneficial to students . Our daughter who is part of Art and literature clubs is very happy while learning some fine nuances of Mandala art and aspects of book reports. These activities support the student creatively to expand their thoughts and also feel rejuvenated. We highly appreciate this initiative and look forward to many more.

Last year, I enrolled my son in class KG1 at GIIS Balewadi Campus. Due to Covid, the schools had to go digital and opt for Online Classes. GIIS adapted quite smoothly to this sudden transition, and I was amazed to see that even children got used to this way of schooling comfortably. One of the positive counterparts of online schooling is its transparency, as we parents understand what the teachers teach our kids.

This is my daughter's 1st year in school and I am happy with my decision. Teachers are well educated and have adapted very well to the concept of the virtual classroom. In this demanding & challenging situation, they are doing a splendid job. In my observation, children are having engaging sessions and are still interested in the process, although they can not see their teachers. The school also carried out the tests very smoothly, and the kids also found it easy to work on google forms. Overall I am pleased with the transition of teaching to the virtual model.

"Global Indian International School is unlike any school. They’ve done their research and understand that children learn best by questioning, creating, and applying knowledge. Through many student-inspired projects and an interdisciplinary curricula, my son is learning to be passionate, curious, creative, and innovative. GIIS knows how to keep kids curious to learn more. The change in my kid since starting at GIIS is nothing short of transformational. GIIS has taught my son not only about academics but also so much about himself. The school model allows him to explore his thoughts and ideas– through both successes and failures – pushing him beyond his own preset boundaries. The teachers celebrate his successes and steadfastly stand by his side with support when it is needed. It’s a wonderful environment to grow in."
