Sited on a modern 2.1-acre campus in the heart of South Delhi, the CBSE-affiliated Paul George Global School (PGGS, estb. 2015) has quickly earned a reputation for providing a rigorous academic programme supplemented by a rich menu of extra-curricular and sports activities to enable all-round development of students. Affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), PGGS has an enrolment of 500 Kindergarten-class VII students and 52 teachers on its muster rolls. The school follows a Montessori-inspired child-centric pedagogy which encourages projects-based and experiential learning.
PGGS was promoted in 2015 by industrialist M.G. George Muthoot in memory of his son Paul M. George under the aegis of St. George’s Education Society, which also runs the St. George’s School, Delhi, and two nursing colleges, an allied health sciences and management college and the Muthoot Institute of Technology and Science — all in Kerala.
