Its a Montessary based school affiliated to CBSE and presently up to 10th standard. Emphasis is on overall development of students and not only academics. Also one of the International school with nation fees.- by Vikas Madan on Dec 15, 2010
My 2 children are studying in Gear. We like the environment of the school and the way teachers work with children are amazing. My kids love to go school and do their homework, by their own interest. Very reasonable fees and comparable to other schools in Bangalore..- by Sangeetha on Feb 01, 2011
GEAR is an excellent school with good teaching methodology. Their Montessori system is one of the best in Bangalore in all means. Some of the good things about the school are,
-No hidden agenda like many schools follow nowadays. Admission process is very straightforward and transparent.
- No rote learning approach. Many creative ways are used for the teaching
- Multiple Intelligence ( MI ) is practiced and every year MI exhibition is conducted.
Recently there was an article about this school in Time of India Education. Their new campus is also coming up in Sarjapur
I am writing this so that " It will go a long way in helping other parents and students make the right decision"
STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL.
GIFTED EDUCATION AND ALL THE CRAP THIS SCHOOL IS TALKING ABOUT IS AN EYE WASH.
RATING IS ZERO, BUT I HAD TO CLICK ON A STAR TO GET THE COMMENT GOING. SO I CLICKED ON ONE. ACTUAL RATING IS ZERO
One of the best schools wrt standing by what they say. No frills. Good focus on education. Excellent attempt by teachers to adopt a different methodology to teach. Yes i agree , they come across as rude to some parents but i think its one of the most accomodating , careful, attendtive and humane schools. They do nothing for publicity. My daughter has egg allergy and i was very skeptical given the bday cookies , cakes etc. Not even once in 3 years was there a slip up and every year the new teacher was abreast and informed by the old one. Her nature walks , worksheets , exposure to science - all that is commendable. Hats off. For those who go more by the board results , 75% of the class got 10/10 CGPA and the topper from Blore for IIT JEE is from GEAR. :-)- by Maansi on Jun 06, 2012
For those who write ill of the school pl visit the site below to see how well it is doing! Thumb up to GIIS. One of the best - stands by its committment and does what it promises. Excellent students
No respect to the teachers either from management and even students . Thats how the culture of India they are making about. Teachers are scape goats who does every thing ( fortunately except cleaning toliets) . So It doesnt matter however the students are inteliigent unless they dont have respect to the teachers ( guro dhevobhava) . Note : Any one enquired about how many teachers per month leave and what is the reason?- by Ravi kumar on Jul 11, 2013

I really don't know what this principle cum founder cum owner of the school think of himself. He and his wife ( administrator of the school) ensure that teachers are treated like donkeys( I mean that). Also no respect of teachers from students too. Our kids can get education any school factory but not the respect. This school comes under that category.
If you don't believe above facts go and do your survey like :
1) How many good teachers stay in the school for more than 2 years.
2) Will you be given a chance to visit the school before admission.
3) How many times in a year you are allowed to talk directly with the teacher.
