Global Paradigm International School is an international school committed to preparing distinguished students from Pre-K to G12 to excel in a future of their choice. In Global Paradigm International School the love and lure for learning is nurtured and fostered in a way where the individual acquires confidence and competence. In an enriched diverse community of students, teachers and parents, we at GP International School value every individual as an independent thinker and decision maker. We encourage respecting differences of others yet treasuring one’s own traditions and values in order to present a responsible, self-content, and an assertive global citizen.

Global Paradigm International School is a private international school owned by El Rabwa Company for Integrated Educational Services. The school is designed as a for-profit, proprietary school; Mr. Gaafar Hussein, Chairman of the company and one of the owners.

The school is a co-educational day school, which offers an educational program from Pre-K through Grade 12 for students of all nationalities. The school is accredited by North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) under the auspices of AdvancEd. The school is also authorized as an IB Diploma Program World School. The school is situated in a residential suburb in New Cairo, thirty minutes away from the city center; the area includes a number of other private schools. GPIS houses a student body that is predominately, but not exclusively, Egyptian.

Global Paradigm International School strives to be a model international school, offering a broad and challenging educational program to students to assist them in contributing their wisdom, compassion and leadership in a global society. Global Paradigm has started operations in September, 2010 with a student body of 165 students from Pre-K to Grade 10; in the current school year the student body is over 750 K-12 students.

The school management realizes that having extra-curricular at the school has significant advantages. The school fully supports a range of activities that are offered either by school staff members or by people from outsourced companies. Students learn skills such as better time management and how to balance their academic life with their hobbies. Students learn skills that are useful in their school life and day-to-day activities, such as teamwork, life social skills, and critical thinking.

At GPIS, the school management noticed that students who participate in extra-curricular activities have a higher sense of commitment to whatever they are involved in, and will foster a sense of accountability and responsibility in them. The school offered outsourced activities, such as Zulu Scouting, Chess club, Journey Entrepreneurship and Science Craft. While the school teachers offered activities such as Arts and Crafts, English and Arabic Choir, Dancing, Crochet, Fashion Design, Creative Steps, Photography, Spanish Dancing and Singing, Drama in different languages and Crime and Mystery club, and Girls Soccer. Students are encouraged to pursue extracurricular activities because it helps in forming new friendships. The activities that are offered may be hobbies at first for the students, however some students might turn their hobby into their career. The school’s vision and mission strongly aims at developing socially responsible citizens hence its commitment to a strong extra-curricular activities program.

Moreover; the school promotes students led activities. The students lead several campaigns and events in which they take pride in their work. We had several successful students’ led campaigns, some of those campaigns will continue until the end of the current academic year 2018-19.
● IB students have initiated a cancer awareness campaign; it will be followed up by an awareness session for teachers, students and parents during November.
● Seniors have launched a recycling campaign and they have communicated the purpose and logistics of this campaign with all students in the academic year 2017-18.

Creative and research-based instructional strategies are used to promote life-long learning and focus on problem-solving and critical thinking skills. All aspects of the school’s organization, curricular, and co-curricular activities are child-centered and designed to accommodate individual learning styles so that all may experience success. Arabic Language, Religious Studies and the Social Studies National Curricula are mandated by the Egyptian Ministry of Education; the school is very keen that its students retain their sense of identity, traditions and cultural aspects but also develop an international mindedness necessary for a future in a connected, global community. World Languages including French, German and Spanish are offered starting Grade 3 through grade 12.; English is the language of instruction for all courses except world language classes, PE, and those courses required by the Egyptian Ministry of Education.

The school administration conveys the importance of instruction for developing critical thinking, reasoning, problem-solving and study skills. The lesson plans in all curriculum areas include diverse teaching methods which address multiple intelligences and develop higher order thinking skills. Teachers are instructed to include methods for differentiated instruction and assessment. Students are taught to be inquisitive and are encouraged to research to seek knowledge. Hands on activities, lab activities and field trips aim to develop reasoning and inquiry skills amongst the students. Bloom’s Taxonomy strategies are applied to utilize higher order thinking skills.

Technology is used as a learning and assessment tool across all grade levels in most of the subject areas. The use of technology is indicated in lesson plans and rubrics for assessment.
The majority of the teachers is comfortable with the usage of Kahoot, EdPuzzle during instruction or in their formative assessments. Students’ use of technology in the school is increasing in most subject areas. Students have school wide internet access and are allowed to use their mobile devices during class time for instructional purposes.

 Why the IB is different

International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes aim to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.

We strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The IB’s programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
  • develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools
  • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
  • develop multilingual students.

 A continuum of international education

We provide a continuum of education, consisting of four programmes that are united by the IB’s philosophy and approaches to learning and teaching. The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.

Quality practice

IB programmes incorporate quality practice from national and international research and the IB global community. They encourage students to be internationally-minded, within a complex and hyper-connected world.

Students learn how to learn

Throughout all IB programmes, students develop approaches to learning skills and the attributes of the IB learner profile.

Students are able to take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge itself is constructed; this is further to our unique theory of knowledge (TOK) course. They are encouraged to try different approaches to learning and to take responsibility for their own educational progress.

Our programmes help IB students:

  • ask challenging questions
  • think critically
  • develop research skills proven to help them in higher education.

IB programmes also encourage students to be active in their communities and to take their learning beyond academic study.

IB students often perform better

IB World School students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics. They are also likely to perform well academically – often better than students on other programmes.

There is more information about the performance of IB students on the IB programme pages. For example, students on the IB Diploma Programme (DP) are likely to enroll at top universities, and students on the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) outperform other students in a number of areas.

The IB learner profile

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success.

They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.

Each of the IB’s programmes is committed to the development of students according to the IB learner profile.

The profile aims to develop learners who are:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

You can read about the IB learner profile in more detail, and watch a video about it below.

The IB teaching style

Education in International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools:

  • centres on learners
  • develops effective approaches to teaching and learning
  • works within global contexts, helping students understand different languages and cultures
  • explores significant content, developing disciplinary and interdisciplinary understanding that meets rigorous international standards.

An IB education aims to transform students and schools as they learn, through dynamic cycles of inquiry, action and reflection.  Teachers enable and support students as they develop the approaches to learning they need – for both academic and personal success.

IB programmes aim to help students explore and construct their own personal and cultural identities.

Testimonials

What Stakeholders are saying ?

  • Without GPIS initially opening its doors for me a couple of years ago, I wouldn't be the self-confident solid person I am today. It truly helped me in various areas like expanding my creativity, organization and management skills. Healthy environments like GPIS makes you want to go the extra mile and continue striving for your dream. I can't help but just coming to work every day with a smile on my face.

  • I have been working here for four academic years. Throughout these years, I have learned a lot, professionally and socially. The school encourages and supports staff members to develop their own potentials. It has given me the opportunity of becoming a homeroom teacher, as I first started out as a Teacher Assistant. GPIS is also very keen on helping teachers professionally as it provides workshops that help in enhancing teaching skills. The school community respects all individuals with different backgrounds which strengthens team spirit and unifies all members to have the same goal and mission. The school environment enhances students’ creativity. It helps them develop emotionally, socially and academically, putting into consideration each child’s uniqueness. Students at Global Paradigm are given the chance to explore, question and share opinions which I believe enhances their self-esteem. The school also focuses on entertaining the kids through events, trips and annual concerts that break any kind of routine that may accompany the academic year. From a teacher’s point of view, GPIS students enjoy their daily attendance at school. They come every day excited to see their peers and eager to learn any new material. “Be the difference that makes the difference” is the GPIS slogan which I believe has become each teacher’s and student’s own slogan.

  • As a KG teacher working at Global Paradigm, it’s not an easy task. I have worked at GPIS for the past two years. There are a lot of requirements that go with being a professional educator at this school. Just as I have high expectations for my students; to succeed and perform the best of their ability, the same standards are expected from the staff.

  • It is my first year at GPIS. I am lucky to be a part of such an organization. GPIS was recommended by a close friend who works there who gave me very positive feedback about the place. As you all know that the first day on the job sets the tone for perception of your company and first impressions are often lasting impressions. Well, my first day at work was able to leave an optimistic impression about the place where I’ll be spending most of my time.
    Colleagues here are very supportive and caring, they offer all the help even if you don’t ask for it. The work environment in GPIS encourages me to be more productive and creative. The administration is very understanding.
    The virtuous spirit is always lifting people up and keeping them excited throughout the year. GPIS offers a lot of professional development courses that enhance teachers’ teaching skills and help keeping us updated with the most advanced teaching techniques. GPIS is always keen to invest in their teachers and give them all the tools that can help them all the way.
    GPIS is my second family that I would love to be a member seeing it growing and flourishing day after day.

  • It is almost a year since my boys have been back from the US and enrolled in GPIS. We had a rough and short start with another school before deciding to join GPIS, which resulted in a loss of trust and confidence in schools in Egypt. The enrollment process was a good experience. Right away we felt it was a caring school with an ethos of success. My boys have settled in well, made new friends and love the school, thanks to the teachers, administrators and particularly the elementary principal Ms. Marwa Al Droubi’s love, support, professionalism, knowledge and full accessibility.
    What we like about GPIS is the diversity, fellowship between students, school spirit, engaged and committed teachers. The high academic standards maintained, coupled with the individual attention afforded to the students is rare and impressive. My boys are happy here and we feel this was a brilliant choice for them.
    Thank you GPIS.

  • I first knew about Global Paradigm International School through social media. I immediately wanted to work for such organization, I was looking to share my experience as well as learning and adding to my teaching career. It’s my third year teaching at GPIS, and I can say that it added a lot to my teaching experience. Being in an organization that supports and appreciates you is a big deal. It feels good to be yourself as teacher, and this school gives you the chance to be yourself and feel comfortable in your own working space.
    The working environment at GPIS is positive, colleagues are very helpful, and willing to share what they know in order to benefit other colleagues. I can say the same thing for its administration, they’re flexible, and able to help in any way they can. The school offers a variety of professional development sessions that help teachers grow to best accommodate the students’ learning needs. Not to mention the different activities the school holds to create a positive learning space for students where they can achieve and succeed.
    Working at GPIS has been a great pleasure. The school provides a safe learning environment for its students, and teachers are committed to provide the best education for their students. I wish GPIS a continuous success.

  • Global Paradigm International School is among the reputable schools. It had a very strong start and continues to maintain its rank and its strong reputation. We offer a quality education and real life experiences that prepare our students to face
    a rapid changing global world.
    I like GPIS because of its friendly atmosphere; I felt a sense of belonging from the day I joined four years ago. Working in GPIS has added a lot to my teaching experience; I am always supported and encouraged to try new approaches and carry out different activities that add to my students’ educational journey. Also, GPIS invests in its teachers; we receive regular PDs and trainings that enriche our
    teaching career. I am lucky I belong to this loving and caring community which I proudly call my second home. Thank you GPIS for all you offer to your students and
    teachers.

  • We heard about GPIS 6 years ago from the head of the department of a Nursery called “Mada”, who suggested GPIS when she knew we were willing to enrol our child in an International American School. As new parents to a Pre‐k girl, we were a bit concerned about the whole new phase of schooling experience, just as normal as any other parent.
    Our first impression was very positive. We both agreed that this school has good ethics and manners and we sensed that through the attitude of the students we saw on the day we went to apply for our child.
    Now My Pre‐k child is in grade 3, and her siblings are in the KG department as well.
    I personally feel settled and content with the school in general, and with the Elementary stage in GPIS in particular. We are blessed to have Mrs Marwa Al Droubi as the Elementary Principal.
    Overall, the school is growing and improving year after year, and we, as parents, are happy to be part of this successful growing school.
