What Sets the Giles School Apart? While The Giles School’s method – early academic intervention, French immersion, and third languages – produces impressive academic results, that’s not what makes us stand out most. What sets us apart, and what we’re most proud of, is our commitment to view each of our students as a totally unique individual to be loved, nourished, harnessed and moulded from within.
The Giles School helps children reach their potential by providing them with a stimulating environment that includes a second (and then a third) language, mathematics, science, art and music. This results in an increase in operating intelligence by 20% and is the reason why our students are working 2 or even 3 grades ahead of students in the public (and private) school system.
But more importantly than their academic achievements, Giles School students feel secure in a safe environment that is nurtured with respect, acceptance, high expectation and love. A Giles classroom is animated by democratic principles where every child is socially equal and unique.
Also, we don’t believe in skipping grades and pushing children beyond their emotional capacities, even if they’re academically advanced. Our small class size gives us the flexibility to offer higher-level work to academically advanced students in their assigned class without leaving their peer group. This ensures that each child develops emotionally at a regular pace while catering to the special needs of fast learners.
So if a programme with the highest international standards entrenched in the principles of love and emotional support excites you, welcome to The Giles School! We look forward to seeing your child in our classrooms!
