From The Principal’s Desk Note
Welcome to GEMS International School, Karnal. A thoughtfully developed beautiful campus, located in green and serene environment, school is affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi up to secondary level. Our school’s purpose is to educate the impressionable minds to take their productive place as leaders in the global community. We are a caring community where students’ needs are a priority and where traditional Indian and modern Western educational values are respected and encouraged to coexist.
At GIS we believe that every learner is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life. We strive to make learning natural and engaging. Our teachers act as facilitators and empower young learners.
The school curriculum emphasises: Growing by Learning – Strive to develop your potential, Pursuing Excellence – Work to continually exceed expectations, Leading Through Innovation – Find the courage to challenge convention and Global Citizenship – make an active contribution to the Global community.
GIS offers excellent infrastructure, well stocked library, well equipped Science lab, Maths lab, special educator catering to needs of our special learners, music studio, dance studio, state-of-the-art ICT lab and unique Professional Development lab. To give exposure to our students we have various clubs like Home Economics Club, Astronomy Club, Integrity club, Eurisko club. School is having a fleet of AC buses having cameras, GPRS and nannies for safe transportation of learners from home to school and back.
At GIS, we aim for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners. We encourage them to explore ideas, question perceptions, collaborate and share their inferences in thoughtful expression. We motivate them to be self-directed, realistic, and responsible decision makers when solving problems that they will encounter in our multicultural, ever-changing world.
We strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We continually improve the quality of tools of communication, including giving our parents access to an interactive website where they can retrieve pertinent information about their children’s academic achievement and even day to day activities happening in the school. You are encouraged to regularly check our website and read about our exciting academic and co-curricular activities.
We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years. I would like to end with the words of John Dewey:
“Education is not preparation of life, education is life itself.”
