The Montessori program is based on the belief that children learn best through their own drive to learn about their world. Montessori methods provide the foundation for everything we teach at GMIS.


Each of our two programs —Young Children’s House and Children’s House — features a spacious, bright classroom. In keeping with the school’s Montessori teaching philosophy, all materials are easily accessible to the students to allow them to select the work that interests them the most.


At GMIS, we believe in the importance of developing the whole child. Our weekly enrichment classes add variety, excitement and breadth to each student’s week at GMIS, and include opportunities for children to discover and develop their interest in athletics and music.


Learning another language is a step towards joining the global community.

Our students learn to speak, read and write Mandarin Chinese and English
in an immersion Montessori environment. Every student at GMIS has teachers
with whom they will speak only Mandarin, as well as teachers with whom they
will speak only English. No prior Chinese language is necessary.

"Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed."

Our purpose is to provide a safe, happy environment for your child, where they are able to be themselves and thrive; while acquiring the educational foundation needed to achieve.

Encouraging the child's drive toward independence.
