Promoted in 2014 by Smt. Shantaben Haribhai Gajera Charitable Trust (estb.1997), Gajera Global School (GGS) has quickly garnered the admiration of Surat’s discerning parents community through the provision of “education that goes beyond the classroom.”

With the objective of contributing to national development through the provision of high-quality education, the Gajera Charitable Trust has established more than 18 schools and three colleges in the western seaboard state of Gujarat that together provide quality education to over 50,000 students. Committed to social welfare, it has also established 757orphanages with old age homes in the state.

Driven by a mission to “nurture well-rounded and confident learners who are prepared to tackle the challenges of the 21st century”, the CBSE affiliated K-12 GGS provides its 629 students a comprehensive education that combines academic excellence with technical skills. The school’s commitment to delivering high-quality education has earned it numerous accolades, including the prestigious EducationWorld Grand Jury Award 2022-23 for Extraordinary Leadership.

Designed to develop confident and competent learners, GGS’ pedagogy adopts a combination of traditional and modern teaching methods to cater to the diverse learning needs of its students. One of the key components of the school’s pedagogy is ‘Learning with Fun’, where students are encouraged to engage in hands-on activities and practical learning experiences that make the learning process enjoyable and memorable. For instance, students are involved in project-based learning, where they work on real-life projects that require them to apply what they have learned in the classroom to practical situations.

Experiential learning is another crucial aspect of the school’s pedagogy. It engages students in practical, interactive, and immersive learning experiences that provide them a deep understanding of concepts and ideas which helps them to appreciate the real-life applications of concepts learnt in the classroom and making the learning process more meaningful and relevant to them.

The school’s pedagogy is designed to provide students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for success in both their professional and personal lives. With a combination of traditional and modern teaching methods, students are encouraged to develop their critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills, among others. By providing students with a supportive learning environment and challenging opportunities, the school nurtures students “who are equipped to excel in the 21st-century global economy.”
