At Global Indian International School, the administrators and instructors work as a team to create a holistic and welcoming environment where students can become lifelong learners. We are committed to academic excellence, but we also actively work to encourage personal development of our students. We emphasise the importance of physical and mental well-being, and we believe that as a result, our students become the best version of themselves.
Nearly two decades ago, GIIS was founded as a school with one campus and just 48 students. Today, it has grown into an educational institution that provides incredible opportunities for students in seven countries throughout Asia. Our campus in Balewadi, Pune is designed to be a holistic learning environment where students can develop their critical thinking skills and feel comfortable engaging in open discussions with their classmates. We offer our students access to innovative technology that keeps them engaged while preparing them for the interconnected world that they will face in adulthood.
At GIIS, we pride ourselves on our ambitious goals. It is our mission to not only transform our children into the global leaders of tomorrow but also for our organisation itself to become the global role models for education. We believe that our students learn from our ambition and that they too grow to crave successful paths and positions that allow them to contribute to their community and the advancement of society. Honesty and integrity are the anchors of our core values, and we try to incorporate them into every aspect of our curriculum.
Our faculty members are experienced and dedicated individuals who believe in the mission of GIIS and who are passionate about educating students in a challenging environment. Our instructors use our rigorous curriculum as the foundation for classroom experience, yet they are able to use their own personalised approach to encourage each individual student to become a lifelong learner who craves information and enjoys problem-solving. Our staff members exemplify our core values and they strive to live out our mission daily.
Our CBSE programme is available for children from Grade 1 onwards. With a strong emphasis on academics, the CBSE programme also encourages children to cultivate their skills and talents through extracurricular activities, such as sports and the arts. Our comprehensive evaluation system recognises children’s individual accomplishments and empowers them to reach their highest potential.
Schools, in this new day and age, have evolved in their role from being purely places of knowledge gathering and academic excellence, to being spaces that motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and productive members of an ever-changing global society.
This is made possible when the school provides a holistics, student-centric environment which allows each student to think, express, exhibit their skills and channelise their potential to enable them to reach greater heights.
Old beliefs of treating students as clean slates are long since gone. Today, we know that the each student has their own individuality, special skills and curricular excellence, which makes it mandatory upon schools to identify, nurture and encourage them to excel in their own sense to reach greater heights.
Schools, thus, have a responsibility to provide an environment that will allow multifaceted development of students through all-encompassing education, which equips a student to develop as an individual.
Which is why, at Global Indian International School our philosophy has always been meeting the needs of the individual student in acquiring skills and knowledge by making the surroundings stimulating and purposeful. We carefully nurture the tangible and the intangible strengths of each student, preparing them to face challenges of a competitive world.
We aim to redefine education for the new generation, by triggering the element of passion and curiosity, competing with none but oneself and against the situation, Indian in values but global in competence.
We want our school to be a place where your voice is heard. If you have ideas, thoughts, or concerns you’d like to share, we’d love to hear about them. You are always welcome to contact us with your suggestions or concerns.
