About School


Established in I982, with varied interests in Real Estate, Travel & Tourism and Exports, the G. D. Goenka Group has stood at the frontier of innovative education, relentlessly building a brand of education that stands for quality and excellence both in India and abroad.Its foray into innovative education began in 1994 to commemorate the memory of the late Smt. Gayatri Devi Goenka, mother of the Chairman, Mr. A. K. Goenka. Starting with barely 23 students in its first year at the first school, the G. D. Goenka Public School in Vasant Kunj, today fosters an enriched educational life for over 2500 students. The school takes pride in having introduced many firsts: the first centrally air-conditioned school offering the most hi-tech gym with Life Fitness equipment (set up in 2000); the first to introduce the air conditioned buses with communication facilities, toilets with sensory taps and Mineral Water Dispensers in Indian schools. With the latest educational aids, equipment and amenities, set up to uphold the highest standards in education, hygiene, safety & security, this model has been replicated in each school owned by or affiliated with the G.D. Goenka Group both in India and internationally.Over the last 21 years, with over 40 wholly-owned and franchised schools across India and abroad, the G.D. Goenka Group has become a trend-setter in quality education from kindergarten to post-graduate education: the G. D. Goenka Toddler House (an upcoming chain of Kindergarten lefts), over 15 G. D. Goenka Lá Petite Montessori preschools (seamlessly blending the IB method with the spiritual method of the Vedas) and an entire Education City on the Sohna-Gurgaon Road.With global collaboration and affiliation at the core, the G.D. Goenka Education City, includes the G. D. Goenka World School with children representing over 30 countries and offering the IB and IGCSE curriculum, the G.D. Goenka World Institute, in partnership with Lancaster University, UK and the G.D. Goenka University that builds leaders of tomorrow, through specialized Schools of Architecture & Planning, Communication , Engineering, Fashion & Design (in collaboration with the famous Politecnico Di Milano School of Italy), Hospitality (in collaboration with Le Cordon Bleu), Humanities & Social Sciences, Law (Approved by the Bar Council of India) and Management.With an experienced Executive Director, professional administrators, dedicated academicians and a bustling student-life the G.D. Goenka World School, set against the picturesque foothills of the Aravalli Range, enjoys the benefits of advanced technology and world-class infrastructure: beautifully manicured lawns, a Wi-Fi enabled, fully-air-conditioned campus; meticulously maintained playing fields, activities and sporting facilities, with nationally-ranked programs (Education World 2013 -14), AV equipped classrooms and conference halls, well-stocked libraries, hi-tech laboratories, carefully planned residential accommodation and an exclusive dining experience. GDGWS has created a space in Indian education that can be benchmarked against the best in the world.
