Why Choose Graceland?

Graceland International School aims at inspiring her students to:

  • Discover and realize their full academic, sporting, artistic and personal potentials.
  • Become well rounded young men and women who enjoy life and contribute to the lives of others.
  • Become leaders, learn how to think for themselves, cooperate, solve problems, make decisions and communicate effectively.
  • Respect others, be open minded, tolerant, principled and honest.

All students are encouraged to take an active part in the life of the school, participating in sporting, academic and national events. Students are encouraged to take responsibilities for their actions, and to behave in a mature and sensible way at all times, both in the school and outside the school.

As part of our mission, the spiritual welfare of our students is given serious attention. There are weekly programmes for them, which include the Monday Bible Study, Thursday Revival Service and Sunday Worship Services. Special programmes are held for them whenever the need arises. And especially during the last week of every term.

 

Open Day

It is our belief that Parents and Teachers are partners in student’s progress. Hence, every half term, on the Saturday preceding the mid-term break, we observe our Parents Open Day. This affords parents the opportunity to see the progress made by their children. It also allows them to meet with their children’s teachers; find out the level of improvement, and what could be done to help the children.

Why Study Here?

The school is established to provide qualitative education based on sound Christian principles. These principles are carefully integrated to guide the students and make them useful to themselves, families, local communities, the country and the globe.

“Our mission is to provide the change needed for a positive transformation of the world around us. We purpose to educate and inform the mind academically while transforming the heart with the gift of salvation. We therefore seek to make the gospel of salvation through the new birth experience known to the students and encourage them to meet God’s requirements for good living through His word”.

The students of Graceland International School are famous for excelling at various levels of academic and non-academic competitions; both locally and internationally.
