We also thank each and every student, parent, and teacher fraternity for supporting GIIS Bangalore Whitefield Campus to reach this incredible milestone of success. 

GIIS Whitefield is one of our unique GREEN-SMART campuses in compliance with the GSF Sustainability framework. 

It is very soon going to join the United Nations-led Sustainable Development Goals Advocate program. 

GIIS Whitefield is located in a healthy environment with abundant greenery around it, complete with state of the art facilities, and has already become popular among the parent community.

The Campus under the leadership of Dr Ashwini Kumar and his highly accomplished team of Academic Supervisors & Coordinators has carved a niche for itself as one of the top schools not only in the Bangalore region but across Karnataka as well.  

The GIIS Whitefield school has already jumped on board the future-ready school platform and positioned itself as a leading institution. 

The Virtual Classroom Connectivity has also ensured that students get the best systems when it comes to teaching and learning, especially during difficult times like the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since its inception in the year 2013, within a short span of time, GIIS Whitefield has shown tremendous growth in all areas and carved a niche for itself as one of the top schools in the region. 

The school started with modest students in the year 2013 and currently It is one of the most reputed and popular international schools in the region. 

The GREEN-SMART Whitefield campus promotes awareness of Sustainable Development around the world and highlights the critical importance of education in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) so that students can better respond to the external challenges while promoting more equitable, inclusive, and resilient societies.

GIIS Whitefield campus is to ensure all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, through Education for Sustainable Development and sustainable lifestyles, gender equality, promotion of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity.

The GIIS GREEN-SMART Whitefield campus is a perfect balance between tech-savvy smart learning to a green environment with a special emphasis on "nurture the nature" concept. 

Each GIIS student is encouraged to take the Green Pledge and encouraged to design their own Green Vision and mission for the school and their community. 

They learn the green & sustainability curriculum from the first year itself.

This leads to enhancement of their mental, emotional and social well being. 

Green corners in every classroom and a lot of lush green open spaces makes the school a haven for the mind, body and soul. 

GIIS students are called Green Warriors and are encouraged to do their bit for Nature and the environment.

Over the years it has lived up to the GIIS framework of academic excellence as well as extracurricular and co-curricular excellence. 

Students of primary, secondary and high school are enjoying their learning process, not just because of the immense diligence and hard work shown by the teachers, but also because of the facilities which make learning fun. 

Our amenities like  Multipurpose Hall, Skating Rink, Children’s Play Area, Indoor Games arena, school ground and much more, have added much value to the students’ overall growth and ensured their all round growth. 

This is evident from the results that the school shows each year. 

GIIS Whitefield  Board results have been outstanding. 

The GIIS Whitefield school, the highest scorer in Grade 10 CBSE got 97% marks, while the grade 12 batch also passed with flying colours. 

This is possible because of the effort put in by the teachers, and the cooperation of the parents who have entrusted us with the child’s education.  

The parents work in tandem with the school and are an integral part of all the school programmes, and have helped us garner speed and quality in education at the same time.

Just look at the student achievements and you will know. 

The GIIS Whitefield campus won the Overall Platinum award at the GSF Global Excellence Day and the first prize in the Heritage quiz in the same event. 

GIIS Whitefield has won 6 awards in 2020 and 4 in 2021 including the IMC Ramkrishna Bajaj National Quality Award, the Kaizen Gallery Award, AIC Innovation Class award, and the Golden Globe Tiger award. What a fantastic achievement.  

The GIIS 9GEMS pedagogy has made sure our students get ready to develop themselves academically and beyond, through our learning methodology. 

Coding, Virtual Connect Series, Field Trips, and AI are adding to their knowledge in depth. 

Besides our Gold Squad, Cricket Academy and cultural activities are adding icing on the cake, making our students all-rounders. 

Further, our GIIS Whitefield students have participated and won laudable accolades in various national and international events such as RWCC, GSE, Global Excellence Day GED, and Jhankaar. 

Students of our GIIS Whitefield campus were crowned the Best Delegation at the Third Annual Edition of Global Model United Nation. Well Done.

All in all the GIIS Whitefield school has shown immense growth and fantastic success since it started. 

The GIIS Whitefield students are now preparing to reach new heights, as more and more universities come to the campus to give them a snapshot of what they can do in future to be successful. 

GIIS students are not just academically good, but also good at all other activities that will make them well-rounded individuals. 

GIIS has also been a frontrunner in implementing the award-winning Data Analytics platform called the 7S that allows teachers to do a detailed analysis for enhancing student performance and student learning outcomes. 

This is particularly helpful in dynamically changing a student’s strengths and weaknesses and our teachers are able to take immediate steps towards the benefit of students. 

The GIIS schools also have a very extensive Student Improvement plan with the philosophy of each student “excels to their fullest potential”. 

It is no wonder that GIIS has produced world toppers in every curriculum it offers, from 70 students as world toppers & near perfect scores in International Baccalaureate, over 130 students achieved A stars in all subjects in Cambridge IGCSE exams and one student was Asia and Middle East topper in CBSE. 

Last year.

In June 2021, the World Book of Records recognised GSF as “World's Most Awarded Network of Schools” for its winning of 235 awards. 

We are glad that parents find the GIIS Whitefield campus a great place to receive excellent education for their wards, which will help them in their student success in future. 

Many GIIS Whitefield parents have acknowledged this fact and expressed their satisfaction at the way the school framework is helping their wards shape into global citizens.

We once again thank every GIIS Whitefield parent for believing in us and entrusting their children’s future with the GIIS teachers. 

We wish GIIS Whitefield students lots of love and best wishes from all of us at GSF. 

Thank you and have a nice day.
