Welcome to Mahindra International School (formerly known as Mercedes-Benz International School -MBIS)
Founded in 1998, originally under the name Mercedes-Benz International School, MIS is a well-established, non-profit school serving Pune’s expatriates, repatriating Indian families and also globally minded Indian families who wish to offer an international education to their children.
Currently, more than 30 nationalities are represented within a student body of about 360 students. Our diverse community shares a common “Statement of Purpose – We promote learning, encourage responsibility and celebrate diversity”. We are proud of the reputation our school has earned over the past 20 years and we are looking forward to the next phase of the school’s history.
In 2019, the Board of Trustees underwent a change in Managing Committee membership with the addition of 5 new Board Members from the KC Mahindra Educational Trust and a corresponding change in the name to Mahindra International School. A smooth transition is underway for this name change, while maintaining the central tenants of the school.
Mahindra International School continues as a not-for-profit school as established under the Public Charitable Trust Act. The school is an independent entity and is not part of a group of schools.
The school’s Mission Statement and Vision will continue to underpin the ethos of the school and strategic decision making. The 2018 Strategic Plan will help move the school through continuous improvement in the next 5 years, supported by the 5-year Accreditation and Evaluation review by the Council of International Schools, New England Association of Schools and Colleges and by the International Baccalaureate Organization.
Fundamental to the school’s ethos is our commitment to the curriculum framework of the International Baccalaureate. We are proud to be the longest-standing 3-Programme IB School in India. This is core to what we believe about education the best possible learning environment.
Our teaching faculty and administrators are amongst the finest in the world, sought after by the very top international and independent schools.

MIS’s faculty are innovative and growth-oriented using best practices in our state-of-the-art learning spaces.
