Growth Story

Global Indian International School’s (GIIS) extraordinary growth since we first opened our doors speaks for itself. What began in 2002 with 48 students on a single campus in Mount Sophia, Singapore has since grown to comprise 20 campuses with more than 15,000 students. Our global footprint spans seven countries throughout Asia and the Middle East, including Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, UAE, Vietnam and India.

Since our inception, we’ve done more than just grow in size; we’ve also grown in reputation to emerge as one of the world’s premier international schools. Our Indian and international curricula offerings for students from kindergarten through Class 12 include the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), Cambridge IGCSE, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and our Global Montessori Plus program. Each of these distinct curricula uniquely serves a diverse student body resulting in optimal outcomes across a multitude of comprehensive measures focused on nurturing a global citizen.

But you don’t have to take it from us: industry experts agree. We are one of the world’s most awarded schools for excellence in K-12 education, with accolades including 70+ international and national awards from a number of distinguished organisations, such as APQD, IOD, and Spring Singapore.

Our students’ exemplary academic performance, scores and notable placements further attest to the commitment to quality that has guided our growth over the past decade. Accomplishments include six IB World Toppers and 18 near-perfect scorers in International Baccalaureate Diploma examinations; ASEAN and Middle East topper with 98.2% in CBSE Grade 12 examination, 2016; an outstanding school average of 87.2 percent on national CBSE Class 12 examinations; and an impressive 84 percent of Cambridge IGCSE students receiving A+ or A grades in their Class 10 examinations. Most recently, 100 percent of the IGCSE Class of 2016 achieved Cambridge International Certificate in Education (ICE) distinction/merit qualifications.

With scores like these, it’s hardly surprising that nearly 40 percent of GIIS graduates have earned placements at Singapore’s most esteemed universities, including NTU, NUS, and SMU.

Today, the fusion of our cultural ideology of “Schools that Learn” and the dynamic, holistic “Nine Gems” framework ensures excellence across all the critical phases of student development, including entrepreneurship, leadership, teamwork, group dynamics, and academics.

And while we’re proud of our growth in such a short time, we know there’s always room for achievement. At GIIS, we’re looking forward to continuing to excel in providing the calibre of 21st century education that today’s complex global economy demands.
