The world is a rapidly shrinking place with physical distances between countries and people no longer being a cause of delays or roadblocks to communication. You can see and interact with your friends, or even do business meetings with someone on the other side of the world in a way that was unthinkable a decade or more ago. Naturally, students today need to develop competencies to grow and succeed in such a globalized ecosystem.
Singapore-based Global Indian International School leads the way by bringing the best educational practices to equip students for the challenges of the new world. Unlike other international schools that branch out from India to other countries, GIIS has campuses in India (at Noida, Pune, Bangalore, Ahmedabad & Surat), which are an extension of an already established presence in the Middle East and South-East Asia. GIIS Noida, therefore, brings with it a nearly 20-year legacy in education excellence, with the distinction of being an international school of repute. As one of the best schools in Noida, here is how GIIS adopts globally benchmarked methodologies in quality education, bringing the world to the classroom for students:
The GIIS Global Advantage
GIIS has a community of nearly 20,000 students representing 42 nationalities spread over 7 countries. This extensive network is put to use in the Global Student Exchange Programme which allows students at GIIS Noida to connect with their peers at its global campuses on a regular basis, discuss learnings and collaborate on various project works. Moreover, through flagship initiatives such as the fully funded Global Citizen Scholarship for Grades 11 and 12, the school provides meritorious students a life-time opportunity to study at GIIS SMART Campus in Singapore, and has now opened doors to its other global campuses as well. This not only gives students an international exposure, but also brings them closer to pursuing higher education in leading universities in South East Asia and Oceania.
Global talent platforms
Several inter-school events are conducted annually where GIIS campuses come together and showcase their best work. Real World Challenges Convention, Global Indian Stars, Global Championship League and many such annual events are organised by GIIS, providing an opportunity to network with students from GIIS campuses abroad and other top international schools in a healthy, competitive spirit. For the past consecutive years, students at GIIS Noida have brilliantly represented their school on the global stage, bringing the winning trophy home several times.
Award winning frameworks
The future belongs to those who bring new knowledge to the world. At GIIS Noida, students are taught a unique early years framework called the Global Montessori Plus which supplants rote learning with a more experiential approach. Emphasis on critical thinking, social, interpersonal and physical capabilities, along with fine motor skills and coordination, create a solid groundwork for the future. From primary grades onwards, the school introduces its holistic learning methodology, Nine Gems to inculcate skill-sets in innovation and entrepreneurship, leadership, universal values, care for the community, performing arts and sports – aligning perfectly with the goals of all-round excellence. This is a reflection of how one of the best CBSE schools in Noida brings out the best in its students.
Seamless virtual learning
When the world went under lockdown during Covid-19, GIIS Noida was already equipped with its latest digital facilities, online learning modules and a well-trained faculty, ensuring a seamless transition for students from physical classrooms to virtual classrooms to be attended from home. The new normal has always been a reality at GIIS, with its unconventional methods of blended and flipped learning. Students are provided with digital content, enabling them to first study the concepts at home, and gain a deeper understanding later through discussions and knowledge sharing during the class. More so, the introduction of a 24×7 whatsapp helpline number to resolve parent queries real time and plethora of extra and co-curricular activities conducted by the school have been appreciated and applauded by the students and the parents.
Capacity building of teachers
More than modern infrastructure, it is the dynamic teachers who make an international school in Noida one of its best. GIIS Noida conducts bespoke training sessions, where teachers across campuses connect via virtual platforms, discuss best teaching techniques and learn from each other. An exclusive Learning Management System is in place to allow teachers to upgrade their professional competencies on the go. The school also empowers them with proprietary tools to ensure 360-degree learning and evaluation of each student. With analytical tools like 7S Analysis and Detailed Assessment, teachers are able to conduct formative assessments, supporting continuous improvement of their students all through the academic session.
Globally recognised for all-round excellence
Unlike any other schools in Noida, GIIS upgrades core curriculum with globally acclaimed educational practices, giving students an edge over the rest. This has resulted in numerous world toppers and high scorers in IBDP, IGCSE and CBSE examinations across the GIIS network. Infact, very recently, Global Indian International School (GIIS) in Tokyo made history when it emerged as the world’s one and only overseas international school appearing in the top 10 CBSE rankings among the 600+ affiliated schools operating outside India. This benchmarked culture of excellence has garnered the school over 150 coveted awards on national and international platforms. That’s not it. Recently, both the GIIS SMART Campuses in Pune were recognised “Best” in the Teaching Excellence Category by Times School Online Education Survey 2020. Furthermore, GIIS Noida has been ranked number-one in the Innovator’s Category of Noida Region in Times School Survey 2020.
