CGK International School is
an IB PYP candidate school

CGK's educational goal is to nurture internationally-minded individuals that can contribute to a better world.
CGK provides an environment where children can learn the skills they need in society and expand their opportunities for happiness on a global scale.

Elementary School Features

Helping Students Develop a Spirit of Inquiry,
Acute Cognitive Abilities, and Self-expression

Students are taught through inquiry. Lessons based on "inquiry" are not passive, rather students take the initiative to cooperate with classmates and deepen their learning. Through active lessons based on research, discussion, presentation, and communication, students acquire cognitive abilities and the ability to express for themselves the things they have learned.

These skills are indispensable for children to be able to carve out their own future paths and spread their wings to the world. Students will not just get high grades on exams, but the global skills needed in real life around the world.
