As a forward-thinking and academically ambitious school, with a strong international dimension, GIIS strives for an innovative and imaginative academic curriculum. Our academic life is complemented by attentive pastoral care and full and wide-ranging co-curricular and extra-curricular programmes.
The SMT (the Senior Management team), the Heads of Faculty and the Academic Council hold constant dialogues among themselves and with the parents and the students to ensure that while the required academic standards are met, the 'Joy of learning' is not sacrificed at the altar of tests and examinations.
There are six faculties, English, Mathematics, Modern and Classical Languages, Science and Information Technology, Humanities, Expressive Arts. Within the Faculty structure, Heads of Departments work to ensure a professional, lively and modern environment in which students learn.
Regular departmental meetings and the academic council meetings monitor the progress made in each department at various levels- Pre-Primary, Primary, Middle and Secondary. Intense discussions and deliberations take place to constantly review the curriculum, the methodology, the suitability of the evaluation tools, the performance of the students in various assessments, the adoption of the best practices among international schools and the efficacy of the non formal learning practices.
The various Academic departments plan an effective curriculum which is geared towards delivering measurable learning outcomes, and each Department is headed by a Senior Teacher (Head of Department) in the subject.
