Global Indian International School (GIIS)

Globalization has led to a high level of inter-connectedness and we are rapidly moving into a boundary-less world as a result of the rapid growth of the IT sector and international business. Multinationals are coming to Malaysia and Malaysian corporations are venturing overseas. Moreover, professionals are highly sought after across various industries. There is a continuous need to upgrade and develop skill sets in today’s competitive environment. To be successful, individuals must be prepared for an ever-changing work place scenario and, therefore, there is a need for global education.

The objective of global education is to create Global Citizens who are citizens not only of a particular country, but also of their smaller communities and the larger world. Global Indian International School (GIIS) is dedicated to nurturing students into men and women of distinction who can naturally belong to a global environment and excel in their respective fields. The GIIS network of schools delivers world-class education across 20 campuses in 7 countries catering to 52 nationalities. Within a span of 12 years, GIIS has launched campuses in Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam and India. Global Indian International School (GIIS) Malaysia was launched in 2006. The Kuala Lumpur campus of GIIS is strategically located in Brickfields, a short walk from Kuala Lumpur’s transportation hub, KL Sentral, with excellent infrastructure to facilitate optimal academic learning, sports and extra-curricular activities.

GIIS Kuala Lumpur follows the CBSE-i and Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE curricula. CBSE-i is a curriculum that constantly updates its syllabus in an international context. It promotes creativity and analytical thinking in students. Many GIIS parents, especially Indian expatriates, prefer the CBSE-i curriculum as it offers a wide spectrum of in-depth knowledge in all the core subjects in alignment with the competitive examinations in India, as well as widespread acceptance for higher studies across the world’s leading universities.

The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum was introduced in GIIS in 2012. It has already seen high acceptance and success with its approach of offering modules in science, ICT and social studies right from Year 1. It has been designed to challenge students to develop independent learning skills and apply knowledge to real life situations. In addition to the core subjects, the students choose from a range of activities suited to their individual aspirations and abilities.

GIIS also offers Central Board of Secondary Education Curriculum (abbreviated as CBSE) at the Higher Secondary level. The curriculum ensures a robust, vibrant and holistic school education that will engender excellence in every sphere of human endeavour.

The CBSE fosters core competencies in its students. Its course structure is based more on reasoning and analytical abilities than memorizing facts. Additionally, the CBSE syllabus puts more emphasis on math and science than theoretical subject matter and is suitable for students preparing for various entrance examinations across all countries, such as IIT-JEE, All India Pre-Medical tests, BITSAT, and NUS.

To achieve desired learning outcomes, GIIS has constructed teaching models like the Global School Nine Gems Model. It is a proprietary tool, which is an integrated holistic approach towards facilitating all-round character building and learning opportunities for students. The model balances academics with personality development, nurtures values and qualities of leadership and entrepreneurship, promotes excellence in sports and performing arts, and instills ethics and discipline.

The Global Montessori Plus curriculum for early years is designed for accelerated and stress-free learning at the pre-primary level. Curriculum enhancers like the global knowledge exchange program help students and teachers explore learning opportunities from campuses within and outside Malaysia. IT-aided learning with smart classes and online content offers students tremendous exposure to the power of these technological tools.

Speaking of IT, GIIS has a robust portal called “myGIIS” that helps parents, teachers and students to remain connected. With international exposure comes the need to remain rooted, and GIIS maintains a beautiful balance between new-age learning and traditional values by integrating values and discipline in lesson plans.
