About 
Our School

At Gangnam International School, we believe in educating the whole child. We strive to raise our students to be happy, caring, responsible, self-reflective, inquisitive, creative and innovative thinkers and doers who endeavor to contribute to society in ways that ripple out beyond their local community. We nurture not only the cognitive development of our students, but also support the development and well-being of each learner’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and psychological self (e.g., habits of mind) while also following each student’s individual interests and learning styles.

Our Philosophy

학생 한명 한명의 바른 성장과 그 어떤 환경에서도 세상을 살아 나갈수 있는Life skills을 길러주어 다변 하는 세상에서 당당히 자기 자신의 목표를 이루어 나가는 우리 gis 학생들이 될수 있도록 사명감을 가지고 교사와 학생, 모두 계속 같이 배워 나가는 것이 GIS의 교육 철학입니다.

 

Life Skill를 하루하루의 수업에서 길러 주기 위하여 Enligsh Math Science Social Studies Art Music 학과목의 chaper별 이론을 습득 한 후, 그 이론을 토대로 학생 개개인의 논리 적인 가설을 설정(포트폴리오/프로젝트 수업), 가설을 입증 하기 위한 research skill, 남들을 설득 할 수 있는 강력한 증거들을 수집 한 후 개인의 프로젝트를 친구들에게 발표 한 후 토론의 과정을 통하여 학생이 미처 인지 하지 못한 다양한 관점들을 다시 생각 하고 정리 하는 과정을 통하여 종국 에는 삶의 그 어떤 상황에서도, 이런 프로젝트 수업을 토대로 본인이 기른  Life Skill을 가지고 의연히 자신의 꿈을 향하여 헤쳐 나가는 것 입니다
