Welcome to Grand International School website. This site will provide you an overview of who we are and what we do.
GIS has been a beacon in the field of education in Angola. It is the pioneer in bringing British and French International Curricula in one school programme in the country. The school is an ideal environment where learners develop a clear understanding of multicultural and multiracial diversity. GIS inspires, motivates, and encourages young minds to be globally competitive as we prepare them to face the challenges of the 21st Century. And to introduce you to more innovative systems in the future, we invite you to navigate this page further so you can discover our special programmes.
Believing in a better and more educated generation, for a brilliant future of our continent, it is our social and academic obligation to share our part of this responsibility. It is also our sincere objective to make this happen. GIS is the fruit of a big basket of plans to develop our Levels of Education. This defines our vision to manifest our aim and to show how we can participate in the enhancement of the country in this particular venture. Seeking and introducing high standard level of knowledge and expertise, we have chosen to present two of the best Curricula in the world – Cambridge and Diplome Francais into our Educational Programmes. The inclusion of co – curricular subjects (Physical Education, Art & Design, Music, Digital Literacy, Portuguese) all contribute to build a future for our learners, that would make them globally competitive and fully equipped to make positive changes. Our maxim, “It all starts here…” definitely makes a difference.

French is a language of both romantic and historical importance. Studying in French or even French in general is very important because it gives you the feeling of acquiring a second identity and of belonging to this great family united in a world organization called La Francophonie.
The Cambridge Curriculum stands out from the crowd as it is internationally recognized.
It offers examinations which are prestigious and certified by the University of Cambridge; an external benchmark that progresses over time.
It improves your English skills through its thematic learning approaches which excel learners to communicate ideas through reading, writing, listening and speaking in real life situations.
The flexibility allows school and learners’ individual needs to be tailored according to our own situation hence the adoption of co-curricular subjects like Portuguese.
Cambridge is cultural, religious and gender sensitive and therefore offers a top quality full resourced syllabus which is international and relevant to every situation. It also allows structured reporting to parents.
