At Gangnam International School, our club activities are 'co-curricular' because they support the curriculum and are aligned with our mission. Students and faculty advisors create, lead, and grow these activities with specific and varied outcomes set from the beginning. Whether it's improving debate skills, supporting the local community, or practicing mindfulness and life balance, we insist that all co-curriculars are fun, purposeful, and meaningful. For many students, this is where friendships are forged and memories are made.
The goal of our G1-6 program is to educate the whole child in an environment that supports overall development and maximizes each child’s potential. Our innovative program is designed to enable and empower our students to be independent, critical thinkers who actively build their knowledge and persevere to succeed in constructing their knowledge and in mastering skills.
Our students grow to be members of a strong community and learn to give back to one’s local and global communities through school-wide volunteer programs and activities.
