Motto


Our tag line says “a class apart”. What makes us unique? Different? It is the Joy that permeates every nook and cranny of our campus. Right from the corridors to the learning stations and the playground we see happy faces not just of the children but of all the stake holders. If Bhutan is the only country in the world that focuses on GNH, JGIS is probably the only school which focuses on the happiness index of each stake holder. I believe Learning and growth will happen when all stake holders are happy. Each JGIS student I can confidently say is Joyful, Grounded in reality, Innovator and a Social change maker.

J - Joyful
G- Grounded in reality
I – Innovator
S – Social change maker
