Our Bridge Programme is an important feature which 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
GIIS is an ideal destination for secondary school admissions and secondary education in Dubai. Our academic add-ons are programmes that 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. It is innovative programmes like these that makes GIIS one of the best secondary schools Dubai has ever seen.
For our students at GIIS Dubai,, the rigour of academics is well-balanced by proper exposure to sports through Co-curricular activities, physical education and a Cricket Academy - making us one of the best schools in Dubai for both academic and physical development of students.
Assessment in the secondary school is based on the assessment policy of CBSE, which puts a 20% weightage on formative and 80% weightage on summative assessment.
Students take the All India Secondary School Examination (AISSE) conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education at the end of Grade X.
To become one of the best private schools in Dubai for the CBSE curriculum, we provide our students with various platforms to improve and polish the knowledge gained in classrooms.
To become one of the top schools in Dubai promoting parent involvement in the growth of their children, 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.
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.
You can think of us as an online school that has far outdone most of the public schools in Dubai which are yet to catch up with the tech-savviness that we promote here at GIIS.
Over and above academic excellence, our award-winning 9GEMS framework promotes values like discipline, creativity, sportsmanship, leadership and respect – many based on universally admired teachings.
This enriched learning experience helps develop our students into refined, morally upstanding citizens of the world; and better prepares them for the myriad challenges of their adult lives.
Every class from Grade 1 onwards would form an action research consulting which will have every student of the class as its member. Each quality circle will identify a problem or area for improvement and work on it with a systematic plan.
In this age of digital transformation, our aim is to create opportunities for students to enhance their science, maths and creative skills, to prepare them well for new-age challenges.
At Global International School Dubai, we offer the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programme to enhance their scientific and innovation skills. These programmes are integrated with regular concepts which are taught in the curriculum.
High performing students, who are especially gifted in scholastic and co-scholastic terms, are treated as Gifted and Talented. Under this programme, students are provided with Advanced Learning Plans to help stimulate their genius.
Inclusive education is what we strive to provide. Which is why students with special needs are also treated at par with their peers.
What makes us one of the best secondary school in Dubai is the special provisions and additional support that we provide to students wherever required. The student’s special education needs are a priority with us and to achieve this, we have broadened the reach of our educational spectrum.
