Distance Learning at GISW

Thanks to our very flexible faculty, our GISW students were able to complete their studies of the 2019/20 school year according to the syllabus in all grade levels, including subjects that are not considered core. Not only did we switch to online learning within two workdays of closing the school buildings, we also had our students follow their complete daily schedule from home every week through the end of the school year. It was not easy, but everyone did their best and we all got through it together.


Preschool and School Entry Level

Even at the preschool and School Entry level, we were able to provide a full program with many fun opportunities for children to interact and learn. We are thankful to our parents for their incredible support and the wonderful cooperation.


Preparing for Fall 2020

Currently, we are getting ready for the coming school year. Our school community’s health and safety is our utmost priority in this planning process. We are conducting a survey among current families and will announce our re-opening plan for the 2020/21 school year on August 7, 2020. Thank you for your patience.
