GOPALAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL was established in 2004 by the Gopalan Group, which has a long standing reputation of sincerity and commitment in the field of Property Development, Architecture and Organic Farming. The endeavor of reviving the age-old concept of education in a new child-friendly environment is spearheaded by a dedicated group who believe, "Helping young minds to realize their full potential is a creative challenge."
Our team is backed by rich educational experience from having worked in various prestigious institutes, and these inspiring minds have created an innovative model of instruction for the pre-primary and primary stages. This model incorporates the very effective concepts of Montessori and the Play Way system. For GIS, they have envisioned a programme that serves to enrich and enhance the skills of the students. Our logo symbolizes the 'Panchabhutam', or the five elements of nature - Air, Fire, Space, Water and Earth. In these natural environs, the child is forever trying to reach beyond the obvious.
Gopalan International School (GIS) is where your child will find his/her first independent, socially interactive scene.

A building they say is as strong as its foundation. Having been builders for over 25 years this is a concept we understand very well. We therefore decided to focus our attention on another foundation of society, Education. A strong foundation for our children is what will create future leaders of tomorrow, thereby contributing to a successful nation. We wanted to create a world-class facility that would empower young students.

GIS is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city at Brookefields, in the centre of Whitefield's IT corridor. Situated on a vast, flora-rich locale, GIS is a scenic landscaped area which encompasses all the elements of learning from nature. At GIS we strongly believe in the "JOY OF LEARNING" philosophy. We ensure that learning is a fun-filled process, making it enjoyable and truly effective. There is also a dedicated garden space where children are encouraged to plant trees, thus creating opportunities that help build the curiosity of the children to the world around them. The classrooms are all theme-based, well ventilated and with comfortable seating. Storage and bulletin boards are designed keeping your child's accessibility in mind. We do not maintain a strict layout of the space and it is adaptable to suit a particular need.
Integrated within the campus layout is an animal pen that allows children to interact with animals in natural surroundings, thus respecting and understanding them better. Biology is now no longer restricted to textbooks.
Traditionally, teaching was always a linear process. But over time this process has evolved to give way to a more comprehensive approach. The emphasis now is on a 360 degree approach as all-round development is very important for an individual's success.
At GIS we value this greatly as we have to consider tomorrow, today. What is History without understanding the social implications it has had to the current scenario? What is Biology without understanding the environment that a particular species exists in? What is Language without the understanding of how to communicate effectively?
IDecisions in one's life are based on a variety of experiences and stimuli. It is important to align all aspects of one's life to attain maximum delight. At GIS, we have a 360 degree approach to learning. Your child will benefit from our holistic approach to learning, where we emphasize on the right guidance rather than traditional teaching, through various methods, in a productive environment. We believe that the
"JOY OF LEARNING CAN BE ACHIEVED WHEN ONE HAS A 360 DEGREE APPROACH TO LIFE."
