KinderKitchen, iCare (Service towards the environment), i-Serve (Service towards Society), i-Know (Life skills) and Balad-i (UAE awareness) are all exciting programmes within the GMP framework that help children develop into lifelong learners while also ensuring practical application of their education.

The 9GEMS framework on the other hand, encourages all-round brilliance for primary, middle and senior school. The 21st century learning model was designed to help students reach their maximum academic potential along with improving their skills in visual and performing arts while encouraging personality development with an emphasis on nurturing innovation and creativity among students.

One of the hallmarks of GIIS Dubai is its forward-thinking approach to education. The institution has embraced technology as an integral part of the learning experience, seamlessly integrating it into classrooms to enhance the educational journey.

It is a place to learn, invent and apply their natural and acquired abilities to discover new things and enhance existing ones.
