A GNS education is intended, and designed, to open the universe of possibilities to every student and to ignite their passion for their own unique futures. At GNS, your child will be empowered to discover who they are, not just what they want to be.

At GNS, we recognize that finding the school that is the best ‘fit’ for your child (and your family) can be interesting, exciting, and, sometimes, overwhelming.

You may have discovered that there is much that many independent schools have in common—so what sets GNS apart?

Every student at GNS is an IB learner. Every teacher is an IB educator. During their time at GNS, your child will be encouraged to ask questions, investigate topics independently and take action about issues they feel are important. There isn’t a single mould for a GNS student. The GNS experience is an enriched one that meets every student where they are and supports them to do their very best.

As a result, your child will gain confidence, learn how to work with and for others, and be inspired to pursue their passions.
