The Director

We promote international mindedness because we believe in its inherent values in developing future citizens who are open minded, who think globally and are therefore prepared for life in the 21st century. We note that the school is privileged in many ways including it’s location on the popular 3rd Avenue road in Gwarinpa, a location that offers enormous advantages and access flexibilities (the school has two gates, a rear gate that avoids the busy 3rd avenue and offers a much safer picking and dropping of pupils in the school) to our teaming parents, we are very conscious of our obligations towards our pupils, which include sensitizing, encouraging and ensuring their growth in academic and other extracurricular activities while maintaining their active participation in emerging global trends like robust ICT engagements, health, safety and environmental management mindedness to mention. We promote a positive culture of self-discipline with clear guidelines on expectations, roles and responsibilities. Our goal is to develop discerning young people able to distinguish right from wrong and make appropriate choices. We promote high standards of achievement, our goal is to add value, maximize potentials and allow every pupil to flourish. In this, we are proud of the academic achievements of our pre-school, nursery and primary pupils. GIA offers an integration of Nigeria and British curricula.
