We have come a long way since our inception in 2002.
Back then, GIIS had a small presence at Mount Sophia in Singapore with a strength of just 48 students. In the last 16 years, we have grown to span seven countries with 22 campuses combined in Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, UAE, Vietnam and India.
Today, we are a leading international school in Abu Dhabi offering Indian and International curricula to students from diverse backgrounds.
We at GIIS, have steadfastly focused on providing an extraordinary education to students from all over the world. In adopting the cultural ideology of “Schools That Learn”, we make each and every member of our community an equal partner in the process of learning.
We have established ourselves as one of the best private and international school in Abu Dhabi by empowering students to take on active roles in their own progress. We uniquely engage them while promoting a culture reinforcing the joy of lifelong learning.
