WELCOME TO GIS MONZA
Welcome to GIS Monza
It’s been a difficult year in education, with schools closed due to the covid-19 epidemic, forcing teachers, children and families to adapt to online lessons and facing and an uncertain future. Many are asking what the long-term impact will be.
It is a challenging but fascinating time to open a new school, but we at GIS have clear ideas about what education should be and the experiences this year have only convinced us to pursue our vision with more determination than ever.
The GIS Vision is founded on two essential principles we intend to be a boutique school based on the five GIS Values.
Central to our idea of boutique education is how we set out to tailor learning to each individual child.
This means we provide accessible class sizes and a higher ratio of educators to children than almost any other school in Italy. Learning at GIS is structured on the most prestigious international programmes, the Reggio approach in Early Years and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years
Programme. These programmes offer the best in twenty-first century education, but we go beyond branding to personalise the learning experience, stretching your child towards excellence and offering constructive support at all time.
The five GIS Values underpin our planning in everything we do. We believe your children should grow up with a global awareness, a principled outlook, the capacity to communicate and interact with others and the resilience to be life-long learners in an ever-changing world. For Italian children
we will provide a truly global learning experience in the English language, at the same time we will ensure that international children will experience the excitement of cultural engagement with their host country.
To achieve these goals for your children we want you to be a part of the process. Interaction with families is essential to our vision and there are plenty of opportunities for you to share in our learning.
Get a feel for how we operate by coming to see our campus, meet our teachers and see our children enjoy learning as protagonists in what they are doing. Live the Global International School experience and imagine what it can offer to your son or daughter. We look forward to welcoming
you to GIS Monza, the second member of the GIS group and, we believe, the most exciting new school in Italy.
