At GIIS: a competitive primary school in Punggol, Singapore; we teach the CBSE Curriculum. CBSE adopts a holistic yet pedagogical approach to education which allows students to focus on academics while simultaneously pursuing extracurricular interests, such as sports.
Available to students in Grade 1 through 12, CBSE's student-centered curriculum involves a continuous and comprehensive evaluation system ensuring that performance standards are not only met but exceeded.
The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged 3 - 12 (Grade 1-5) nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. Through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, the IB Program PYP challenges students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts.
PYP is now being offered in both SMART Campus and East Coast Campus.
Global Indian International School Pvt Ltd is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School and becoming one of the best private primary schools in Singapore for the IB PYP Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
As the best primary school in Singapore for the PYP, our programme for primary years is designed to be a joyful experience for students between 5 to 12 years, an age where physical and mental growth is accelerated and all encompassing.
At this critical juncture, our faculty step in to identify, nurture and grow the students academic and non-academic interests in such a way that information passed to them is measured and engaging, making the learning of the rigorous CBSE curriculum a fun and joyful experience from the moment students take primary school admission at GIIS.
The academic teaching methodology at GIIS: one of the best private primary schools in Singapore for students, can be compared to a spiral structure which rises up in a systematic manner, as well as burrowing deeper down. This concept - of rising higher and going deep - has been adopted in our academic structure which gives our students a good balance between imagination and understanding.
When your child takes primary school admission with us at any time in the school year, their school transition is made easy with our Bridge Programme. The Bridge Programme allows our students to start at any time during the school term and receive the assistance they need to catch up with their peers. Rest assured that your child will be learning with his/her classmates as quickly as possible.
This specialised programme exists to help students of all grade levels make up for lost time, complete important lessons and classwork, and catch up academically with their regular class.
Our academic add-ons are programmes that give additional boosts to a student's learning curve through targeted studies, helping them focus on additional areas and concepts at no extra cost or charges to your private primary school fees.
We provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) related material that helps students understand key concepts in the subject by creating working models of these concepts; use online tools like HeyMath! to hone their mathematical skills and conduct detailed assessments through which the teachers understand every child’s strengths and weakness in particular subjects.
For our students at GIIS: one of the best international schools in Singapore, the rigour of academics is well-balanced by proper exposure to sports through extracurricular activities, physical education and Gold Squad.Sports is taken very seriously from a young age. Students are encouraged to take up one sport of their liking in their ECA. Their performance is scrutinised thoroughly by the coaches, who help identify talents in various sports and encourage them to join our specialised Gold Squad Programme.

We make sure that parents are involved in the education and growth of their children at every step.
All information about the student is shared with the parent through our customised portal - myGIIS - which acts as a communication platform between the two sides.
Newsletters and emails are sent periodically, while each parental query is responded to within 24 hours – unless it is punctuated by a weekend, public holiday or vacation.
Over and above academic excellence, our award-winning 9GEMS framework promotes values like discipline, creativity, sportsmanship, leadership and respect – many based on universally admired teachings.
This enriched learning experience helps develop our students into refined, morally upstanding citizens of the world; and better prepares them for the myriad challenges of their adult lives.
