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.
Building on a foundation of over 25 years of training and experience, our teachers have made a strong commitment to delivering the IB curricula as they believe it equips our students with the higher-level skills of inquiry, analysis and innovation, which will help them have a positive affect on the world around them.
We pride ourselves on delivering programs that teach students how to learn, not just what to learn. Over time, our students develop a deeper understanding of their own learning styles and how to define, and achieve, their own version of success. They also become critical and creative thinkers who can apply the knowledge and skills they have developed to real-world situations.
GNS is authorized to offer three IB programmes:
The IB Learner Profile places the student at the centre of their learning and aims to develop internationally minded people, who strive to be: inquiring, knowledgeable, thinking, communicative, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-taking, balanced, reflective and persevering.
On their journey from PYP to MYP to DP, the IB Approaches to Learning framework helps students develop competencies for research, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication and self-management.
Overall, the IB programmes at GNS nurture in students a commitment to learning as a life-long process, challenging them to take thoughtful action with their newly-acquired knowledge and skills.
