**Mission Statement from the IB
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
With an experienced Executive Director, professional administrators, dedicated academicians and a bustling student-life, the G.D. Goenka Global School was opened in the heart of Gurugram in 2018. Here students enjoy the benefits of advanced technology and a world-class infrastructure in a Wi-Fi enabled and fully-air-conditioned campus, which also boasts of meticulously maintained playing fields, activities and sporting facilities, AV equipped classrooms and conference halls, well-stocked libraries and Stem Lab, stimulating indoor and outdoor learning spaces, an all-weather swimming pool and an exclusive cafeteria. In short, GDGGS has created a space within the Indian education system that can be benchmarked against the best in the world.
FOUNDATION AND EXPANSION
Established in I982, the G. D. Goenka Group, with varied interests in Real Estate, Exports and Travel & Tourism has stood at the frontier of innovative education, diligently building a brand of education that stands for quality and excellence both in India and overseas.
THE G.D. GOENKA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
The foray into innovative education began in 1994 to commemorate the memory of the late Smt. Gayatri Devi Goenka, the mother of the Chairman, Mr. A. K. Goenka. Starting with barely 23 students in its primary year at the first ever school, the G. D. Goenka Public School in Vasant Kunj currently fosters an enriched educational experience for over 2500 students.
The school takes pride in having introduced many firsts: the first centrally air-conditioned school offering a sophisticated hi-tech gym with life fitness equipment (set up in 2000), the first to introduce the air conditioned buses with communication facilities, toilets with hygienic sensory taps and mineral water dispensers for all staff and students. With the latest educational aids, equipment and amenities provided to uphold the highest standards not just in education but also hygiene and safety & security, this model has been replicated in each school owned by or affiliated with the G.D. Goenka Group both in India and internationally.
Over the last 21 years, with over 40 wholly-owned and franchised schools across India and overseas, the G.D. Goenka Group has become a trend-setter in quality education from kindergarten to post-graduate education, which includes the G. D. Goenka Toddler House (an upcoming chain of Kindergarten lefts), the G. D. Goenka Lá Petite Montessori preschools (seamlessly blending the IB method with the spiritual method of the Vedas) and an entire Education City on the Sohna-Gurgaon Road.
THE G.D. GOENKA EDUCATION CITY
Driven by the passion of one of India’s most avant-garde industrialists, the ideas of Globalization and Internationalization are merged in over 60 acres of prime property on the Sohna-Gurgaon Road to create Mr. A.K. Goenka’s vision of an educational hub: the GD Goenka Education City of which the World School is an integral part.
With global collaboration and affiliation at the core, the G.D. Goenka Education City includes the G. D. Goenka World School with children currently representing over 30 countries and offers the IB and IGCSE curriculum, the G.D. Goenka World Institute in partnership with Lancaster University, UK and the G.D. Goenka University that shapes our leaders of tomorrow through specialized schools of Architecture & Planning, Communication , Engineering, Fashion & Design (in collaboration with the famous Politecnico Di Milano School of Italy), Hospitality (in collaboration with Le Cordon Bleu), Humanities & Social Sciences, Law (approved by the Bar Council of India) and Management.
The GD Goenka Group, led by the revolutionary vision and persuasive action of the Chairman, Mr. A. K. Goenka, is tirelessly supported by the hands-on approach of Vice-Chairperson, Mrs Renu Goenka and the energetic marketing and financial expertise of the Managing Director, Mr. Nipun Goenka, who believe that their journey into education has only just begun. With their vision firmly focused on educational advancement globally, they remain ahead of the curve…breathing new life into education across the country.
Learning is enabling the individual to utilize his/ her potential to its fullest. Without education, the development of the human mind is incomplete.
At G. D. Goenka Global School, we provide an environment and curriculum where children can explore and develop every facet of themselves, enabling them to realize their true potential. This, coupled with a state-of-the-art technology, a highly qualified, thoroughly trained and concerned faculty, a plethora of activities for students to engage in -all provide an environment that’s both therapeutic and beautiful.
As children go about discovering themselves, they also discover extraordinary roots, because another objective of the G. D. Goenka School is to ensure that the wards of NRIs and Persons of Indian origin abroad get an opportunity to reconnect with the culture and values that form the backbone of every Indian’s existence.
To achieve these objectives, this unique educational institution seeks to blend the beauty of traditional cultural values with the latest in teaching aids and methodology to optimize learning, open young minds and empower young people to become global citizens who stand tall and live with courage and conviction, carving a niche for themselves wherever they go.
Good luck and best wishes!
A. K. GOENKA
