Singapore is arguably one of the best countries in the world to live in. It is wealthy, boasts of excellent infrastructure and has one of the best standards of living in the world. That is the reason why it acts as a magnet for expats from around the world to come there to work and live. The fact that Singapore has some of the best international schools in the world encourages many of them to come to live in Singapore with their families. 

Let us check out one such international school in Singapore, the Global Indian International School and find out what makes it so popular.

1. Foremost among the IBDP Schools

The Global Indian International School is an authorized IB School in Singapore, that allows students in the 16 to 19 age group to avail of the much sought after International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). This programme is customised to empower students in a manner that nurtures their physical, emotional, intellectual and ethical skills.

This combined with GIIS’s 9GEMS  approach that lays great stress on a tech savvy environment, enables their students to receive a balanced exposure to enabling and empowering activities that stand them in good stead in their life ahead.

2. Best Curricula

Apart from the IBDP curriculum, GIIS Singapore offers a host of top rated curricula across age groups. These include the Global Montessori Programme (GMP) for preschoolers, the IB Primary Years (PYP) for students in grades 1 to 5, Cambridge CLSP for grades 6 to 7, Cambridge IGCSE for 14 to 16 years old and the preminet Indian CBSE board curriculum for grades 1 to 12. There is also a bilingual programme that helps students gain proficiency in English and Mandarin. 

3. Scholarships

The Global Indian International School encourages and supports students who put in an outstanding performance in academics and sports by offering very liberal scholarships. These scholarships are available for students studying in grade 1 to 12. These categories include academia, sports, merit-cum-means and scientific temperament. Every scholarship cycle is three months long, and four such cycles are organized in a year under the aegis of the Global Schools Foundation.

These scholarships go by the names of - 

● Global Citizen Scholarship

● Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Skills Scholarship

● 9GEMS Holistic Development Scholarship

● Global FUTURE-READY Merit Scholarship

● Mahatma Gandhi Universal Values Merit cum Means Scholarship

4. Stellar Background

GIIS Singapore has grown from strength to strength in the last 16 years. They have built a sterling reputation for themselves as one of the finest international schools in the region catering to the needs of students hailing from myriad backgrounds. Students at GIIS Singapore can look forward to an extraordinary education based on the ideology, “Schools that Learn, which provides every student a chance to grow equally.

Their students are empowered to be active participants in their own progress. The school engages with them in a manner that they learn to obtain joy from life long learning.

The Global Indian International schools across the world have earned a formidable reputation for the sheer excellence of their academic instruction and the cutting-edge world-class infrastructure that they provide to their students.

This enables them to make their alma mater proud around the world. All GIIS schools including the ones in Singapore have one of the best track records in terms of securing admission for their students in the best universities of the world. A lot of credit for this goes to the IBDP curriculum and the extraordinary commitment shown by the teaching staff of these schools to shape the destiny of their children. This is extremely credible given that Singapore has some of the best-known schools in the world. 

Many of these are internationally well-known brands that are graded quite highly in the field of education. While GIIS Singapore is quite a favorite among the Indian ex-pat community, owing to the fact that it offers the CBSE syllabus, it is equally well regarded by members of other ex-pat communities living in Singapore on account of its high standards of education and excellent infrastructure. One can only expect GIIS to grow in stature as a temple of learning for children from around the world. It is one place where they will not only obtain life-changing and enhancing education, but a truly international environment to shape their worldview in the most positive manner possible.
