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. We focus on child-centred learning that emphasizes strong academics balanced with co-curricular enrichment and authentic opportunities for service learning.
At GNS, your child will be empowered to discover who they are, not just what they want to be. When they leave GNS, they will have learned how to be curious, engaged and balanced learners who are ready to take positive risks, make mistakes and follow their own path.
The foundation of the GNS student learning experience is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. Through inquiry-based and experiential learning, your child will enjoy an enriched course of study focused on critical thinking and the application of skills and knowledge.
Our Early Childhood Programs blend IB PYP classroom learning with weekly nature school to provide your child with a unique preschool experience.
The PYP is an inquiry-based curriculum that will encourage your child to ask questions and to apply their learning to bring about positive change in their communities.
The IB MYP will equip your child with the necessary knowledge, attitudes and skills to actively and responsibly engage in a dynamic and interconnected world.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a globally recognized curriculum that will encourage your child to take ownership of their learning and develop critical thinking skills. Students in Grades 11 and 12 can choose to pursue the full Diploma, or take a mixture of Diploma and/or Provincial courses.
We strongly endorse student activities as being the other half of a well-rounded education. Academics and student activities together will form the core of your child’s program, hence the phrase co-curricular activities.
The Round Square focuses on experiential learning that will allow your child to develop into a responsible global citizen that values academics, appreciates diverse perspectives, respectics differences, and understands their role in shaping a peaceful world.
GNS offers a world-class Outdoor Education program that will allow your child to engage with nature, challenge themselves and develop leadership and enduring friendships.
