Stage Principal Welcome
Dear parents and guardians,
It is with great
honor that I assume the role of Early Learning and Elementary principal at GPIS.
The elementary years
are crucial for building the foundation of academic success and holistic
growth. During this stage, students develop foundational skills in subjects
like math, language arts, and science. Additionally, they also develop
character, creativity, and social-emotional skills.
In today's world,
students need 21st-century skills like critical thinking, communication,
collaboration, problem-solving, and creativity to meet the demands of a
fast-paced, technology-driven society. Our curriculum explicitly teaches these
skills to prepare students for future challenges and opportunities.
At GPIS, we believe
in the power of individualized learning. Each child is unique, with their
strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. Therefore, our teachers strive to
create a supportive and inclusive environment, tailoring instruction to meet
the unique needs of each student. We encourage students to take ownership of
their learning, set goals, and work towards their personal and academic growth.
While we have a
global perspective and aim to prepare our students for success on an
international level, we simultaneously strive to maintain and nurture our
Egyptian identity. We proudly celebrate our rich cultural heritage and promote
Egypt's history, language, and traditions. We believe that a strong foundation
in one's own identity enhances personal well-being and fosters a sense of
belonging within our diverse community.
Lastly, I cannot stress enough the importance of
parental involvement in education. We encourage parents to maintain open lines
of communication with teachers, attend school events, and support their child's
learning both inside and outside of the classroom.
Together, let us work towards providing an enriching and empowering elementary
experience for our students. I look forward to working closely with all of you
as we embark upon an exciting and successful academic year.
With warm regards,
Our curriculum is structured to stimulate creative thinking and encourage our students to explore the world around them through practical exploration and discovery. Accordingly, our curriculum is planned around activities that we organize in order to promote learning and personal growth. Through integrated learning, we encourage the students to put to use different concepts taught across the curriculum in order to solve problems & create products that are applicable to real life.
Students’ work is focused on the Four Core subjects of learning: Language Arts, Math, Science & Social Studies along with Arabic and Religion.
Our Music, Art, IT & Physical education classes are the place where talent and discipline meet to shape a balanced child.
Professional development for staff is the main pillar to achieving students’ development. GPIS takes pride in planning yearly PD, training & PLC sessions for teachers that have a different focus and objective every month
