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 understand the importance of happiness and 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, measuring happiness can be done by considering 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 at GIIS, Kuala Lumpur are organically engaged and thereby happy. In nurturing this engagement and happiness, we’re nurturing learning.

How it works

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


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.

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.



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.

Happy Environment in GIIS School



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.
