At GIIS, our aim is to offer students aged 2.5 to 18, a 21st Century education that prepares them for the future. More than 3000 students, from Nursery to Grade 12, opt for International or Indian curricula at our Punggol and East Coast campuses in Singapore.
Experienced and passionate educators help students explore their interests and build their skills through a holistic educational framework, a vast array of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and collaborative learning spaces.
Our youngest learners, from 2.5 to 5 years of age, are offered a unique Montessori-inspired curriculum that provides them a stress-free education with a strong academic base. For our primary and secondary students, we offer international curricula, including the IB Primary Years Programme, the Cambridge IGCSE and the IB Diploma Programme, along with the CBSE from Grades 1 to 12, that gives students a well-rounded education.
For more than 20 years, GIIS students at our Singapore campuses have excelled with outstanding results and have gone on to study at the world’s top universities including the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Harvard University, Cornell University, Imperial College London, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and many more.

What Sets This School Apart
GIIS offers a premium international education to students in a modern, 21st century learning space at a moderate fee, that is almost 40% lower than some other international schools. Our flagship SMART campus at Punggol features over 40 skill-based studios, multiple performing arts spaces, high-end sports infrastructure and digital classrooms to provide students with a balanced education.
Our 9GEMS framework is an award-winning holistic approach to education which is aligned to the school’s mission of producing well-rounded individuals. The framework fosters all-round development in students with special efforts taken to develop students’ excellence in the following nine areas – academics, sports, visual and performing arts, innovation & creativity, entrepreneurship & leadership, personality development, universal values & ethics, community care and skill-development.
The school's unique performance-measuring metrics, called 7S, tracks and monitors each student's academic and all-round progress thus enabling teachers to monitor and provide a systematic development plan for each student.
Exciting New Developments
GIIS now offers a full-day Kindergarten programme for children aged 2.5 to 5. The “Extended Global Montessori Plus” programme from 9 am to 3.30 pm incorporates the Montessori approach, while adapting modern best practices in preschool education.
The 6-hour programme for Nursery, Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2 students has been thoughtfully designed to include:
- Language and mathematics lessons, environmental awareness, music and movement, practical life lessons, motor skills development and sensorial exercises in the morning
- Story-telling or a manipulatives session every afternoon
- Dance, Speech & Drama, Art, Physical Education and Creative sessions involving Design Thinking and Maker Spaces on a rotational basis every afternoon
This programme provides preschoolers a good balance of academic and skills development. Social skills and self-confidence is developed as children have more time to interact with their peers. There are also many opportunities for young children to sharpen their cognitive and sensory skills through this programme. Our specialised Kindergarten educators personalise every child’s preschool journey, within the safe and child-friendly environment of our campus.
GIIS fosters a strong value system that shapes students into global citizens who will become the leaders of tomorrow. Students at GIIS are encouraged to develop a growth mindset and provided with constructive feedback to help them bounce back from any setbacks they may face. This promotes resilience in students and prepares them for life beyond school.
