International High School Curriculum in Dubai

GIIS Dubai enjoys pride of place as one of the best international high school in Dubai for the CBSE Curriculum. Our curriculum is tailor-made to equip our students with the best possible quality education.

Central Board of Secondary Education - GIIS Dubai

CBSE Curriculum for High School

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a renowned pedagogy which prepares students from Classes 1 to 12 for competitive examinations while facilitating entry into the world's leading universities. This approach to holistic education and a focus on the CBSE curriculum makes us one of the best CBSE schools in Dubai. It enables students to focus effectively on academics, as well as pursue their interests in sports and extracurricular activities.

The Curriculum

An interdisciplinary teaching at GIIS, an Indian high school in  Dubai,  gives students a powerful opportunity to apply knowledge, principles, and values to more than one academic subject simultaneously. CBSE’s global curriculum includes the CBSE curriculum which comprises built-in activities and exercises which promote cross-curricular learning.

Ability to apply knowledge effectively in a variety of contexts

Engage in higher-level reasoning skills.

Teachers leverage this method into an enriched learning experience by helping students more easily connect with the material. In addition to learning how to surmount demanding academic rigours, students also learn how to apply skills learned in the classroom to real-world challenges.

Bridge Programme in International School Dubai

Our Bridge Programme is an important feature that benefits Indian high school students at the time of admission. It allows our students to start at any time during the school term and receive the assistance they need to catch up with their peers. Rest assured that your child will be learning with his/her classmates as quickly as possible.

This specialised programme exists to help students of all grade levels make up for lost time, complete important lessons and classwork, and catch up academically with their regular class.

Add-ons - Value Added Programmes

We are one of the leading Indian high schools in Dubai where admission will guarantee academic and all-round holistic development. Our high school courses offer academic add-on programmes that are designed to give additional boosts to a student's learning curve through targeted studies, helping them focus on additional areas and concepts at no extra cost.

We provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) related material that helps students understand key concepts in the subject by creating working models of these concepts; use online tools like HeyMath! to hone their mathematical skills and conduct detailed assessments through which the teachers understand every child’s strengths and weakness in particular subjects.

The Outcome

As with all of our other curriculum offerings, academics are at the forefront of the CBSE programme. The interdisciplinary teaching at GIIS gives students a powerful opportunity to apply knowledge, principles and values to more than one academic subject simultaneously. We strive to become a leading high school for international students seeking quality education in the CBSE curriculum.

This commitment is exemplified by consistently outstanding test scores of our students in both Class 10 and Class 12 in CBSE Board Examinations. These fantastic results facilitate the entry of our students into world's leading universities with ease.

CBSE Assessments and Outcomes

As one of the best international high schools, we offer the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (CLSP) to our students in addition to the CBSE Curriculum. This is the first step for students towards choosing an International Curricula as their mode of higher study.

The Cambridge IGCSE aims to cultivate the development of critical skills in students, including creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving. In doing so, the programme lays the vital groundwork for subsequent lifelong learning.

Communication and Interaction

We make sure that parents are involved in the education and growth of their children at every step.

All information about the student is shared with the parent through our customised portal - myGIIS - which acts as a communication platform between the two sides. As a new Indian high school in Dubai, we want to make information such as high school fees accessible to students and parents at all times.

Newsletters and emails are sent periodically, while each parental query is responded to within 24 hours – unless it is punctuated by a weekend, public holiday or vacation.

Counselling for High School Students

As one of the most progressive and best high schools in Dubai, we believe in supporting the student’s emotional and psychological growth. To make this happen, we have a designatedur School Counsellor who is always available to work with students, parents and teachers in a variety of ways to provide support to the student     .

He/She is a member of the school’s student welfare initiative. Only with the consent of parents, the counsellor will provide requisite information to teachers that will assist them to meet the needs of the student in a better manner.

There are a number of ways the counsellor assists students. It is done through:

Counselling students

Assisting parents or guardians make informed decisions about their child’s education

Assessing students learning and behaviour

Assisting schools to identify and address disabilities that affect students learning

Liaising with other agencies concerned with the well-being of students
