Learning at GGIS - GEMS Genesis International School Ahmedabad (Dubai, United Arab Emirates, United Arab Emirates, Other Countries)

Learning At GGIS » At GGIS learning is embedded in real life. A student’s knowledge is linked from known to unknown and wonder and excitement never leave our classroom. Through three main pathways- Language, Math, and Programs of Inquiry, our students explore the complex world to grow up to be responsible citizens.

Inquiry based CIE & CBSE blended curriculum

The way we learn Language Language forms the core of all learning at GGIS. We strongly believe that students who have a good command over language tend to do better in all other academic as well as nonacademic areas.

Our language program is mapped to Cambridge Primary curriculum and it aims to enable learners to communicate confidently and effectively. It also helps them develop critical skills in order to respond to a range of information, media, and texts with enjoyment and understanding. Learners who follow this framework will develop a first- language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture.

The way we learn Math Math program widely covers the logical thinking abilities. Math at GGIS is not just about numbers or being able to add or subtract. It is about developing techniques and skills for the application of mathematical principles. We use the Singapore published textbooks that are aligned to the Cambridge Primary Math curriculum and also NCRT text books. Our students develop not just a keen understanding of the concept but a love for the subject.

Various strands of Math like numbers, number sense, data handling, geometry and measurements are all underpinned with Problem Solving techniques. Students following this framework develop a deeper understanding of patterns, systems, functions and relationships and can apply their mathematical knowledge for a holistic learning. With numerous learning resources and manipulatives at hand, students rarely have to imagine Math.

They see it, feel it and hence love it. To see how some our classes learn math, do check out these blog entries on

GGIS » hosts How-to workshops for both language and math programs that enable to parent to understand the nitty-gritties of the subject. This also enables them to deal successfully with their children’s work.

The way we learn Science and Social Science Social studies are the closest to real life and our students learn about the world, seasons, water cycle, government and much more through our Programs of Inquiry (POI). POI is a 6-8 week long topic that enhances students’ knowledge and focuses on skills rather than content. It is open ended in nature and is driven by the students. PoI covers most of Social Studies and EVS topics generally taken up in Indian schools. However, the topics are dealt with very differently and the student engagement is superlative.
