    According to the Association for Talent Development, where you learn is nearly as important as what you're learning. Evoking good or positive feelings actually help learning to take place, increase motivation, inspire confidence and make everything seem easier. Placing your child in a school that cares about the look and feel of the campus can actually assist them in excelling academically.

    The Importance of Campus Design

    It's human nature to appreciate beautiful things -- like the newly designed GIIS SMART Campus. If it's a strong first impression that moves you, you'll love the GIIS SMART Campus at Punggol.

    This grass-and-tree lined campus, nestled snugly within the 50 ha of Punggol's new Digital District, will have access to innovative architecture, designed to mimic nature. The campus has been brought to life by some of the world's best architects, and features open-space classrooms, student group rooms and a variety of studios for students to enjoy. Fixed glass and translucent building materials allow tons of natural light to enter and to inspire.
