Welcome to the Gulf International School

Welcome to the Gulf International School (GIS) located in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
The Gulf International School is a non-selective, co-educational, English medium school. Started in September 2013, GIS aims at nurturing students from Kindergarten to Year 4. The school is home to young people from the local and expatriate communities, thus creating a thriving and multicultural learning environment.
The curriculum is formulated around the British National Curriculum with suitable modifications taking in to consideration an international mix of students and their requirements. The students at GIS are guided by a group of highly accomplished staff, thus providing an extremely engaging and creative teacher – pupil interaction.
