A Day in the Life at GMIS

Caring, gentle teachers

Our son went to GMIS for preschool and loved it. Caring, gentle teachers, a strong parent community and Mandarin - all that we could hope for.

Best Choice

GMIS is such an incredible school. We always tell other parents it's the best school in the area because you get the Mandarin language education PLUS Montessori program. It's the best choice we've made to enroll our child in this school.

Dedicated Parents

The teachers and staff at GMIS genuinely care for the well-being of all the students.  They provide a warm, supportive environment for kids to learn and explore the world around them. I feel fortunate to be involved with a school with such enthusiastic and dedicated parents, who are also fun to be around.

Chinese Culture

Language and culture are the frameworks through which children
experience, communicate and understand reality.

We accompany each child’s education in Mandarin language with fun activities inspired by Chinese culture. For example, the children practice and perform a Chinese New Year program of song and dance. In class the children even have the opportunity to prepare traditional Chinese foods, like moon cake and dumplings.

Science & Geography

Education is not the learning of facts, but the training
of the mind to think.

These activities are designed to help the child become aware of and appreciate the diversity of the world. By examining the human, plant, and animal worlds, the child gains exposure to the life that surrounds him or her. The child is taught to respect and take care of the environment. Even the younger child experiments with air, water, and electricity, among other elements. The child is able to develop his intellect by thinking about the relationship between the causes and effects of each experiment. Rather than just inundating the child with a lot of facts and information, experiments allow the children to grasp a clearer understanding of their physical environment through hands-on activities. The child then develops new ways of thinking and sharpens his or her memory.
