Good Tree International School (GTIS) is a private school located at Bagtas, Tanza, Cavite, Philippines.

History[edit]

It was first known as Carissa Grace Mission School, Inc. offering a pre-chool course for children 3½ – 6 years old.

Rev. David Jhung, a Korean missionary, founded the school in November 1999 as a free kindergarten school. To respond to the needs of Christian families in the community, he decided to continue the program in June 2000 as formal educational institution for nursery, kindergarten and preparatory levels registered with the Department of Trade and Industry. He aimed for a Christian school geared to the attainment of the highest academic standards for the development of personality in a totally Christian environment. Due to parental demand, the school started operating grade 1 in June 2001, an additional level for 2002, and two more levels for 2003. The school registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in September 2001. Pursuant to the provision of Act#2706, as amended, and Batas Pambansa Bilang 232 (Educational Act of 1982), DepEd granted the Government Permit to operate the complete pre-school and elementary courses (grades 1-4).

In March 2003, the institution bought a 1,000 sq.m plot in Bagtas and started the construction of the new school building. In March 2003, the school board amended its articles of incorporation and by-laws, changing the name from Carissa Grace Mission School, Inc. to Good Tree International School, Inc. and transferred the newly named school from Carissa to Bagtas, Tanza Cavite. At the same time, Good Tree International School acquired another 1,000 sq.m lot, and started the construction of the pre-school building.

In 2006, the school started its high school level with recognition from the DepEd. The three-storey high school building was completed during that year.
