Director's Message

Welcome to Mahindra International School (MIS) and welcome to Pune, India’s most liveable city!

Founded in 1998 under the name, Mercedes-Benz International School, MIS provides students a learner-focused, rigorous and balanced education which draws on the best pedagogical methods in international practice including an emphasis on inquiry. Learning is focused on knowledge, skills as well as attitudes. We are very proud to be India’s first 3-Programme IB World school.

We have earned a strong reputation in India and abroad for our excellent teaching practice, outstanding results and deep sense of community. As the longest-standing 3-Programme IB World School in India, we enjoy a legacy of high-quality education that will continue as we move into the future. We value our status as a Council of International Schools (CIS) and a New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) Accredited school.

As we look forward to the future, we envision MIS as an empowered, innovative and agile community of learners who achieve and contribute positively within and beyond the school. We have purposely small student body of 360 students from over 30 nationalities. We value the advantages of being a small school with a family feel, where we know each other and have a strong sense of community. We view the partnership of teachers and parents as key to the success of all learners.
