5 things parents like about GIIS (Primary School)
Global Indian International School, the K-12 school is a preferred choice by more than three thousand students in Singapore.
The school’s two campuses – SMART Campus at Punggol and East Coast at Cheviot Hill are specially designed to deliver a world-class holistic education that any expat parent would look for their children.
What is it that makes GIIS a popular choice for parents who are looking for a wholesome education, especially in the primary years?
Five compelling reasons for parents to choose GIIS for primary grades:
Mastering Mandarin and English languages at an early age is a great start towards being a global citizen. The Chinese-English Bilingual Programme at GIIS helps the students master the two most widely spoken languages in the world and also gives them a chance to get exposed to two different cultures.
The content rich Bilingual Programme is closely aligned to IB PYP framework and is delivered by two native Mandarin and English teachers to ensure that students learn both the languages with equal dexterity.
A moderate fee structure for the Bilingual Programme at GIIS makes it affordable for parents who want their children to be bilingual speakers.
Dual Curricula Option
Students get to choose between International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme, which is an internationally recognised primary grade framework OR CBSE, which is the national curriculum of India.
With the option to choose between two curricula, the school offers just the right flexibility that an expat parent is looking for.
Both are acclaimed curricula for primary grades and offer strong academic foundation along with developing the traits of a 21st century learner.
The best part is yet to come, the students enjoy the flexibility to switch from one curriculum to another, anytime during Grade 1 to 5. If a student feels that a particular curriculum is not aligned to their learning style, they can opt for the other choice.
A good balance of academic and personality development of children is the key outcome that parents expect from a primary school.
While all schools talk about this, GIIS is a step ahead in implementing that!
The school has an award-winning 9GEMS framework in place that is entwined in the curriculum to focus on the development of students in these nine areas - Academic, Sports, Visual and Performing Arts, Innovation and Creativity, Universal Values & Ethics, Community and Care, Entrepreneurship & Leadership, Skill Development and Personality Development.

Would it mean that if I am working and my wife elects to be a stay-at-home mum until our child starts school - that it’ll cause me a problem down the line because they won’t approve a visa based on the non-sponsor’s employment situation?
