GSIS curriculum taught at GSIS emphasises the enjoyment of learning and the mastery of skills and is carried out on an integrated or organised basis. The school is known for its excellent academics.

Literacy and numeracy are of prime importance. The children follow a highly structured curriculum comprising Mathematics, English, General Studies, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Art, Music and PE

However, while the syllabus does stress academic achievement, it is well balanced with a strong emphasis on physical development and an appreciation of music and the arts.

Having been a “British – style” school for the longest time, the Upper Secondary students are no longer doing A Levels and, instead, following the IBDP for the last two years. The first students to sit the Diploma will be those in Year Thirteen in 2014/15.
