Teaching approach of the school

At Gheras International School, we define the curriculum as “what our pupils will learn”, not the traditional classification of “what our teachers will teach”. We place the individual academic needs of our students at the centre of all that we do.
GIS teachers focus on generating the correct mechanisms for strengthening life-long education and human development, empowering them to manage their own learning in various contexts. GIS believes that real intelligence arises only when children are given opportunities to engage and identify the significance of knowledge in their lives. Some of the main approaches and lines that GIS teacher follow are; transdisciplinary approach, Concept-based instruction approach, International awareness, Inquiry, Differentiated classrooms.
