The school aims to provide an affordable world-class quality education - knowledge, skills, and values to the children of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) based in Jeddah. The GIS offers pre-school, elementary and secondary education and it follows the Philippine curriculum. The school includes Arabic Language, Saudi History, Geography and Culture as additional subjects to be taught.

The GIS, a Saudi-owned Filipino School, counts on itself to provide an affordable world-class quality education for the children of OFWs based in Jeddah.


The GIS, established in 2005 by a group of professional Filipino teachers, envisions itself as a primary institution that intellectually and morally develops young Filipinos to become global citizens with a deep sense of nationalism and patriotism.
