From commencement till date, the school has remained committed to ensuring that every student gets the opportunity to thrive amid a holistic environment that promotes productivity and encourages them to strive for personal growth and success.

In accordance with this belief, we commenced The Gera School. The idea was to revolutionize the education space, especially in Goa, and present young aspirants with opportunities to help them explore their potential and climb ladders of professional success. Enabling training and access to information are some of our ways to reinforce their preparation process for the upcoming IGCSE exams. I want to personally extend my best wishes to all the students and good luck for their future endeavours.”

We are proud of this first batch appearing for the Cambridge IGCSE Examination from The Gera School for continuing to put in the hours required to excel. We are equally proud of our faculty members who give of themselves and work diligently and thoughtfully to keep the students motivated to learn and face challenges head-on. On behalf of all our staff, I wish our students continued success in their academic year.”
