School Policies

At GD Goenka World School, we take pride in being an academically selective institution that seeks students with intellectual potential, ensuring they thrive in an environment that offers a diverse range of curricular and extracurricular opportunities. Our admission process is designed to identify candidates who align with our values and will contribute positively to our vibrant learning community.

The Power of Parental Engagement:

Research underscores the undeniable impact of parental influence on a child’s life. Actively engaged parents contribute significantly to improved student behavior, attendance, and academic performance. Positive interactions between families and schools contribute to a child’s emotional and cognitive development. At GD Goenka, we believe in harnessing this power of parental engagement for the holistic development of our students.

Our Approach:

We view parents as crucial collaborators in the education process, working together to create an environment that nurtures student success. Our Parent Partner Programme goes beyond conventional involvement, seamlessly extending academic support even beyond the school premises. By involving parents in decision-making processes, we establish an open channel for communication and feedback, ensuring timely enhancements for an unparalleled educational experience.
