SchoolWiser Viewpoint

The GD Goenka World School (GDGWS) came into being with the efforts of the well-known Delhi based entrepreneur A K Goenka and his wife Renu Goenka. The school was named in the memory of Mr. Goenka's mother Gayatri Devi Goenka (GD Goenka). Nipun Goenka who is the Managing Director of the GD Goenka group was selected amongst the “51 New Millennium entrepreneurs” in India by Education World and published in their anniversary issue in November 2013.

The 60-acre campus on the foothills of the Aravalis is breathtakingly vast and the on campus facilities can easily be compared to any international boarding school - nine constructed main buildings, multipurpose indoor hall for theatrical, sporting and cultural activities, seven playfields for cricket, soccer and hockey etc., 400 metre track for athletics, a hi-tech gymnasium, squash courts, table tennis and billiards rooms, half Olympic sized indoor swimming pool and a sprawling 17 acre, 5-hole golf course.

GDGWS is one of the pioneer schools that implemented an international curricula in Northern India and currently offers various International Baccalaureate (IB) programs and the IGCSE program of the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) but what stands out is its vastly diverse student population with many different nationalities being represented in a classroom - bringing a true International / Global prespective to each discussion.

This is an amazing school. I am so happy with the expectations of my kids on all levels. I have loved all of their teachers. They go above and beyond to make sure our experience here has been and continues to be leaps and bounds above our public school experiences. Which have been with three different public schools in two counties.. those schools were no where near close to gd in all areas.

Full marks for facilities! But my daughter found it difficult to write at length even in Grade 4 as the school is too much dependent on gadgets and tablets. For those parents who have no qualms regarding writing, it is good but those who want their kids to be at par with other schools students, it is not a good choice.
