GIIS has always been active in embracing the new distinctive programmes which help in overall growth of students. We are an IB authorised school in Dubai offering the IB Diploma Programme designed for students aged from 16 to 19 years. Our two-year programme is designed to give students the opportunity to develop as learners, acquire skills to think and work independently, learn how to be team players and develop excellent communication and presentation skills. Learning through IBDP, our students understand how they are connected to the world in order to take action to improve their own lives, as well as the lives of local and global communities.

IB DIPLOMA Programme As A Curricula

The IB has the potential to powerfully shape the lives of students who opt for this programme. It is renowned world-wide as the best pre-university programme. The IBDP is dedicated to students aged 16 to 19 years and is recognised by over 2000 institutions across the world, including top universities. Being one of the best in the list of IB schools, our Diploma programme involves study of six subjects. It's a must for every student to study a subject from each of six subject areas and the DP core module that includes:

Theory of Knowledge

Theory of Knowledge is a subject which helps students to develop critical thinking that teaches students how to learn, helping them to develop a comprehensive knowledge of the learning process which they can apply to various disciplines and across all their subjects.

Extended Essay

This is an excellent opportunity for students to practice their skills of research, writing argumentatively and referencing in preparation for university or the world of work.

CAS - Creativity, Action and Service

CAS is intended to be interwoven into a student’s learning experience and keeps them self-determined, happy and motivated throughout their academic journey.This essential component of IBDP helps students to develop problem-solving & decision-making skills.

DP Core at GIIS

DP Core aims to broaden students’ learning experiences and challenge their application of knowledge and skills. Programme involves students taking part in a range of activities and projects such as music, sports or fundraising, and an independent piece of research, culminating in a university-level essay.

Technology adds sheen to our educational offerings, while our award-winning holistic framework called 9GEMS adds to the depth of learning students experience during their two year programme.

Data Analytics at GIIS

GIIS Dubai  has a unique methodology to check the academic and non-academic progress of our students. We have devised methods and installed platforms which give us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.

Data Analytics in academics at GIIS is called the 7S method, in which teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development. This includes school, segment, section, subject, subject-teacher, student and summary. 

Data is  then studied by the teacher to determine progress of the student in all areas of development, and an assessment is done which helps students understand their strengths and weaknesses.

University Placements

The IBDP is a great asset to an university application, with 97% of universities rating the IB Diploma as the best programme to prepare for higher education. Our IBDP results are in line with exceptional results from previous years and a reflection of the hard work of our students and faculty. We are proud of our graduates who have gone on to secure placements with some of the top universities of the world that include University of Oxford, New York University, National University of Singapore, London School of Economics among many others.
