Confidence and connections are two of the top reasons these alumni parents sent their children to their alma mater, Garden International School.
Established with a vision rooted in academic brilliance since 1951, GIS has consistently evolved over its 72-year history, shaping young minds from ages three to 18 and offering the globally recognized IGCSE and A-Level qualifications. The school stands as a symbol of resilience and adaptability, providing an education that transcends time and boundaries.
A TESTAMENT TO TIMELESS EXCELLENCE
In the heart of GIS’s success lies the profound impact it has had on families across generations. The story is not just about notable alumni but the unique connection forged by multiple generations within the same family. GIS has become a revered choice, leaving an indelible mark on families like Jackie Chua and Taranjeet Singh, both proud alumni.
CELEBRATING SUCCESS: A GLIMPSE INTO TWO GIS FAMILIES
Jackie Chua fondly reminisces about GIS as a “wholesome and nurturing environment,” where academic achievements were celebrated alongside extracurricular development. Her positive experience, enriched by teachers who encouraged confidence and opinion-sharing, influenced her decision to enrol her children. The legacy continued as Aris Razlan excelled in sports and academics, representing GIS at the international level and now pursuing Chemistry in Imperial College London.
“I feel like I became a very well-rounded person because of the environment at GIS. Although the school is known for academic excellence, it doesn’t just celebrate those who are book smart,” recounts Aris. “GIS gave me a sense of belonging through sports, friends, and support from my teachers, encouraging a healthy mentality of academic excellence and well-being. Throughout my time here, I have been surrounded by inspiring teachers and students who push you to be the best you can be,” he adds.
Taranjeet Singh, CEO of Quantum Steppe Advisory, describes how GIS shaped him to be a global citizen “I value the experiences and fellowship I enjoyed as a student. Even 40 years later, we’re still connected, despite being in different parts of the world. I commend my parents for their foresight in investing in my education, and the value it has brought me is unbelievable.”
His son, Soheil, also an A-Level graduate of GIS, currently reads economics, politics, and history at University College London, another world’s top 10 university.
Soheil shares, “It was through speaking with my teachers that I discovered my passion for economics.”
