Global Indian International School
The Global Indian Foundation, a Singapore-based non-profit organisation which established the first Global Indian International School six years back in Singapore, has now grown into a healthy network of 15 schools in seven countries with more than 17,000 students.While most students are Indians, the school also gets students from as many as 30 countries. Four schools are in India and the rest across countries like Malaysia, Japan, Vietnam, New Zealand, Thailand and Singapore. All the Global Indian International schools also have a compulsory Mahatma Gandhi Centre for Values and Thoughts - a library of books on Gandhi.The school offers both International Baccalaureate (IB) and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) curriculum. While CBSE is followed until Class 7, students have a choice to go for either IB or continue with the CBSE board after that, till Class 12.
