For Families

As an International School, we invite parents and guardians to be actively involved in our school community.

We value the partnership with our families and engage with them in many ways. This page provides resources for parents and guardians of our students and is a great starting point to orient yourself as a new family. Parent engagement is an important part of our school life, and we hope you explore the many opportunities to get involved. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at info@gisbos.org.
