At GIS The International School of Monza learning focuses on the development of skills and attitudes that young people require to become active participants in the world of tomorrow. It is an international experience that the students experience both as national and global citizens. For our Early Years sections we inspire ourselves on the Reggio Emilia approach. An innovative and inspiring philosophy to Early Childhood Education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge.
Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. In our Primary Years sections, we believe in inquiry-based and trans-disciplinary learning. Concepts are explored from a local and a global perspective through the lenses of the different disciplines. The child develops the necessary skills to ask relevant questions and find evidence based answers to fulfil their curiosity and reach their own conclusions.
They also develop social skills, learning how to work with others in cooperation, to reach a common goal, and develop the necessary confidence to share their ideas and thoughts. Through these different elements, children are prepared to foster their love for learning that should permeate throughout their entire lives.
Excellence in Monza for me is called GIS. A teaching staff of the highest level, a brand new structure full of innovative teaching materials! The experiences are really valuable (trips to the park, music and theater workshops and many others) and the teaching of great quality!
After almost a year of my daughter attending PY1 (first grade) I have nothing but positive things to say for this school. My daughter is happy to go to school, there is not much to add.
For the sake of completeness, H international was here and it was there until May 2020. GIS International took over in August 2020 saving a school that others had decided to close. Thanks GIS.
