is home to several well acclaimed International Schools.
These form training grounds for students to perform
well in the global scenario. In India the medium of
education in international schools is accepted as English
although these different schools follow different examination
systems and boards.
But being in India they have to
adhere to certain requirements of the Indian national
system irrespective of the examination system adopted
by them. Most of the international schools opt for the
I B Board or the (International Baccalaureate). However
there are other examination systems like the GCSE and
GCE examination systems.
Good Shepherd International School (GSIS) is run along the lines of the best in the world’s educational practices. It provides a cutting edge academic programme with state of the art infrastructure and facilities for not just the gifted but any upwardly mobile Indian students, from all over the world – 40 countries; here, students acquire an excellent education in a rich Indian context, grow up rooted in our core values and graduate to take on the changing world’s challenging demands as they pursue higher studies in top universities in India or worldwide. This is what sets the school apart in the growing milieu of international schools in the country today.
Although a rigorous academic programme is at the core of everything we do at GSIS, an equally outstanding co-curricular and extra-curricular agenda for students endows them with a much needed holistic education to give them a competitive edge over their counterparts elsewhere.
The School’s Mission Statement states, “List of International Schools in India endeavours to prepare each student for academic social and personal success by creating a community of empowered and diverse learners striving to be globally minded citizens in an atmosphere of mutual respect, understanding and trust.”
The administration, staff and students are committed to this mission and work together to obtain exceptional results in the academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular arenas and be happily productive in our very lives together at this completely residential School.
Good Shepherd International School was founded in February 1977 by Dr.P.C.Thomas. An educator at his core, his School is no doubt reflective of his far-sighted vision for Indian education. Dr. Thomas says, “I believe in inclusive education as the key to human enrichment and India’s giant strides to further progress”.
State of the art facilities and infrastructure support his vision and ardent endeavour to make education at GSIS a wholesome and enjoyable experience.
A simple, yet distinctive and firm underlying philosophy of the school, to provide an international education while being steeped in the rich Indian educational tradition and core values, has been received very positively worldwide; it has resulted in the growth of the school from a small, family operation of 54 students to 1200 students currently, to be rated as one of the best international schools in India and acknowledged as world class.
The Institution has further diversified its operations in the field of education to include the Good Shepherd Finishing School and The Good Shepherd College of Hotel Management where students engage in a unique twinning programme to earn a Bachelors Degree in International Business Hospitality and Tourism Management after two years of study at the GCHM and the third year at the César Ritz Colleges, Switzerland.
