The Chittagong Grammar School (C.G.S.) was founded in 1992, to satisfy the need for a truly international school in Chittagong. The existing English-medium institutions were not of an international standard and many families were forced to send their school-going children overseas to seek quality education.
In an effort to bridge this gap, four Chittagong families (Dadas, Ispahanis, Khans and Nizams) came together and co-opted the best teaching resources available in the city. These teaching consultants set new criteria for standards and established school policies. The aim was to get the best teachers in Chittagong under one roof in order to create an institute of high international academic standards.
In September 1996, CGS relocated and moved the junior section (Playgroup- Class 3) to its new premises. Later the same year, representatives from The Round Square Organization paid an inspection visit to CGS. Immediately upon their return they issued a letter welcoming CGS as an associate member to the group. Now, as a full member of Round Square International, we encourage students to embrace the organization’s six pillars of Internationalism, Democracy, Environmental Stewardship, Adventure, Leadership and Service to the community (IDEALS).
In addition to Round Square, CGS is a member of several other international organizations, including a College Board Center (SAT tests), Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme (DOE), International School Services (ISS), Harvard University Model United Nations (MUN) and an international Fellowship Centre for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
