GEMS CIS understands that true education extends beyond the academic curriculum. We strive to cultivate leadership and a sense of legacy in our students by prioritising their well-being and happiness.
Our curriculum nurtures the development of students in all dimensions of their lives. We provide state-of-the-art resources such as 100% smart classes, activity-based teaching, experiential learning, lab activities, small group activities and a wide variety of co-curricular activities. These opportunities allow each student to discover their areas of strengths and interests and develop their leadership potential.
We expect all our students to show respect and courtesy to everyone around them, creating a supportive and harmonious environment throughout the school. Our education system is modernised yet mindful of the sensitive social issues and values of our country, instilling a sense of legacy in our students as responsible citizens of the future.
During Grades 6 to 8, our focus at GEMS CIS is to promote self-dependence in learning. Our curriculum covers Science, Social Science, ICT and other subjects taught in previous classes with an emphasis on individual attention. Group learning is also encouraged, allowing students to work both collaboratively and independently. Through this approach, they develop the skills to set long-term goals for themselves. In addition, we offer various activities aimed at building confidence, evolving personality and boosting morale, including morning and evening sports practices.
Having successfully overcome the challenges of the primary years, our students are now ready for the next stage of their education. We believe in promoting leadership skills and legacy-building by instilling in students the importance of setting long-term objectives and goals. Our comprehensive value-based education facilitates a smooth transition from childhood to adolescence, ensuring that our students are well-prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
The curriculum, apart from classroom teaching, integrates practical work, guest lectures, field trips and project work, integrating a rigorous academic curriculum with immersive global experience. Learning concepts are followed by engaging activities. Smart Class Technology in all our classrooms helps to bridge the gap between classroom learning and the real world. Extensive research-based projects are carried out in multifarious subjects like Maths, Science, Social Science and English.
At GEMS Cambridge International School, our focus is to make students learn through a variety of multisensory experiences, including hands-on activities, discussions, debates, creative and critical thinking activities, collaborative research, field trips and multimedia. Students are also given a platform to nurture their talents through subject events such as Math Wizard, Literary Extravaganza, Scientific Cambrians, Youth Parliament and Literary Event conducted for Language II.
