About GIIS

We, at the Global Indian International School, have been providing quality education to students for the past 18 years. Since the inception of our first GIIS campus in Singapore, we have continued to grow and now have over 20 campuses spread across Asia. 

We have several campuses in India, Pune, Surat, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and here in Noida. Each of these schools has unique resources that aim to benefit local and international students. 

However, in this article, we will focus on GIIS Noida. Keep on reading to gain an in-depth understanding of the resources at GIIS Noida and how you can utilise them.

1. Scholarships

We offer a range of educational scholarship opportunities to current and new students. These students can apply for these scholarships every three months. At GIIS, we run four scholarship cycles every year. 

The scholarship cycles mean if your child meets all the qualifications, he/she has more than one chance to apply for the scholarship; they can try for the scholarship of their choice four times a year. 

The scholarships open the door and give students a chance to groom themselves for the future at our holistic institution. The scholarships available at GIIS Noida include:

2. School Levels

At GIIS Noida, we offer education to students from nursery level to high school. We have four levels:

1. Preschool

Also known as pre-primary, the preschool level offers the Montessori type of education to children between 2.5 years to 6 years. The education structure enhances children's cognitive, physical, and social-emotional skills. They learn about individuality and independence as the teachers prepare them for primary education.

2. Primary School

We offer primary education to students between 6-10 years. The teachers help the students to identify and nurture their interests as they learn about new concepts in class. The higher you go up the school level, the deeper these concepts become.

3. Secondary School

Students aged 11 to 14-years receive secondary education at GIIS Noida. The students receive modern 21st-century education as a way of preparing them for the future. They engage in a comprehensive curriculum and take regular assessment tests to enhance academic improvement. Apart from the curriculum, various initiatives and programmes instil moral and professional values in the students.

4. High School

Our high school education prepares students between grades 11-12 for university and college education. The students prepare for the final CBSE board exams, which can determine their university placement. Teachers work closely with the students to provide holistic education, which will teach them how to adapt to the outside world. The students go through rigorous entrepreneurial and leadership boot camps as a way of moulding productive adults.


3. Curriculum

The residents of Noida and beyond relate quality education with the Global Indian International School. We use international curricula to impart education to students at all school levels. The curricula at GIIS are:

1. The Global Montessori “Plus” Curriculum

The teachers use this curriculum to encourage learning for preschool students. The award-winning curriculum is a customisation of the Global Schools Foundation from the original Montessori curriculum. It enhances independent child-led learning to enhance all-round development.

2. Central Board of Secondary Education

We use this curriculum to impart knowledge to students between grades 1-12. It prepares the students for competitive exams as they receive holistic education and pursue their interests in various extracurricular and co-curricular activities. The students sit for board exams under this CBSE curriculum at grade 10 and grade 12. In addition, it facilitates their entry into reputable universities and undergraduate programs.

3. Bridge programmes

At GIIS Noida, we have outstanding bridge programmes, which allow students who may fall behind to catch up with their classmates and excel. The students who join the school later than other students do not have to strain to catch up the specialised program helps the students to make up for lost time without falling behind in class.
