Experiential Learning is recognized by MIS as an essential component of the wide range of learning experiences that come together to offer our learners multiple pathways into their learning. Outdoor education via day and overnight field trips allows learners to apply their knowledge and conceptual understanding in a real-world context. Learning is social and our trips provide the opportunity for learners to engage with the local community here in Pune and beyond.
At MIS we believe it is of paramount importance to instill in all our learners a passion for healthy and active lifestyles. Whether it is in our Physical and Health Education classes (PHE) or in our competitive athletic teams, all our learners will be exposed to a variety of individual and team sports and will acquire on the court, field, and pool important life skills like resilience, collaboration, and sportsmanship
MIS is India’s first school to offer all three IB programmes in the continuum. We ensure that our academic philosophy aligns with the International Baccalaureate’s practices. The Primary School follows the Primary Years Programme, and the Secondary School follows the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. Our teaching staff undergoes continuous professional development to ensure the academic programme is delivered effectively to our learners
We are a diverse and inclusive school community, and our school philosophy enables us to support all learners holistically. Our school mission and vision is to educate the whole child and develop physically, socially, and emotionally aware students and independent thinkers.
Our learning support department comprises of qualified and trained specialists who ensure we provide families with relevant support. We liaise with professionals out in the community to support our families—for example, child development paediatricians, psychologists, neurologists, occupational/ speech therapists, and psychiatrists. The team works closely with our teaching staff through collaborative sessions to streamline support and strategies for learners on support plans or IEPs.
The Arts play a central role in the holistic educational experience of all learners at MIS.
We offer visual arts, music and drama from EY1 to DP2. In addition to regular classes, there are opportunities to develop interests and talents through extra-curricular activities (ECA’s) and we have various yearly performances within and outside of the school
Aligned with our learning philosophy, our 4-acre campus provides a beautiful and intimate space for our community of learners. Easy access to outdoor areas supports student well-being and promotes active, lifelong learning through play and sports. Our learning spaces are designed to promote inquiry, while two libraries, visual arts and music studios, design workshops, a swimming pool, and sports facilities promote our holistic approach. We have an excellent on-site catering service, a medical center with a doctor and two nurses, and a school-owned transportation fleet.
