IB World School Authorization

We’re excited to announce that we’re now an official IB World School!

With more than 4,500 schools offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 147 countries worldwide, we’re delighted to be now a member of this ever-growing global community!

The IB is recognized across the world for its innovative approach to education placing an equal focus on academics and other, transferable skills, in order to best prepare students for success beyond school. – Due to the concept-based nature of the IB, our education enables students to learn skills they are able to easily apply to any life situation, going well beyond the classroom and helping students succeed in the future, both in their local and global communities.

We are thrilled to become an IB World School and we look forward to building GISC further both figuratively by reaping the many benefits of the IB program and literally by moving to a bigger campus in early 2018!

We’re proud of this great accomplishment and grateful for everyone involved in this true team effort!
