Secondary School

Structured system for 11 to 16 year-old students in a digital environment.

CBSE Secondary Programme

This comprehensive curriculum from  Kindergarten to Grade 12 focuses on academic rigour while encouraging non-academic pursuits at the same time. Its global focus comprises built-in activities that promote cross-cultural learning.

The renowned Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) pedagogy  prepares students for competitive examinations and equips them well to enter into world's leading universities.

An interdisciplinary teaching at GIIS gives students a powerful opportunity to apply knowledge, principles, and values to academic subjects.

Cambridge Secondary Programme

The Cambridge IGCSE is an internationally recognised programme which gives a jump start to students who may want to take up international curricula in future.

Offered in nearly 2,300 schools in over 130 countries worldwide, this internationally recognised programme focuses on critical thinking and problem solving aspects of education which is enquiry-based.

With a good balance of retaining local roots and getting an international outlook, its broad-based curriculum encourages students to be lifelong learners.

Academics - Multiple choice of curriculum

We cater to the educational needs of students 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.

Add-ons - Value Added Programmes

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.

Activities

Extra-Curricular Activities

For our students, the rigour of academics is well-balanced by proper exposure to sports through extracurricular activities, physical education and a Cricket Academy.

Sport is encouraged through ECA while co-curricular activities (CCAs) include honing inherent skills in students like performing arts, leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation.

These activities balance the learning environment in the school and allow 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).

Assessments and Achievements

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.

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.
