Programmes for High School

Unique opportunities and co-curricular programmes for our high school students

At GESS International School, we believe in empowering our high school students and give them the freedom to grow and develop their interests beyond the curriculum. We offer our students both integrated and after-school programmes including competitive sports and over 100 after-school activities. Our programmes are taught by professional tutors and educators who mentor and guide our students to discover their passions as well as build confidence.

Service as Action programme
for grades 9 and 10

We inspire our students into inquiry as they identify, research and implement solutions to real-life problems. Students develop and participate in three activities per year of which one must be an independent project.

GESS students are encouraged to take initiative and action by using their abilities and talents to respond to current global and local issues and show cultural awareness.

The GESS Service as Action programme enables our students to take on challenges that develop new skills including planning and working collaboratively with others.
