Nurture - Challenge - Inspire
Pioneering international education since 1966
Munich International School (MIS) nurtures, challenges and inspires students to become academically successful, life-long learners, creative and innovative thinkers, ethical, globally-minded contributors and healthy, well-balanced individuals who will thrive and make a positive impact in a complex and changing world.
MIS is not just another international school. Visitors see it immediately when they step onto our beautiful parkland campus. Students feel it every day through their inspiring interactions with our world-class faculty. MIS leverages unparalleled expertise in delivering renowned international curricula within a caring, innovative and healthy environment.
Munich International School was the first international school to be established in Munich and came into existence in 1966 in response to meeting the needs of a rapidly growing international community. In 2016, the School celebrated 50 years of success at cultivating academic achievement, physical and emotional well-being and the ethical and social competencies necessary for students' success and happiness in a rapidly changing world. Today, the School operates as an independent, non-profit, International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and 'Ganztagschule' that has been authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) since 1980.
As a leading MYP e-assessment school for the IBO, MIS continues to pioneer new curricula. MIS is officially recognised by the Bavarian ministry of education and fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
Easily accessible from Munich, the School takes full advantage of its 26-acre campus in an idyllic nature preserve near Starnberg to provide students with high-quality educational experiences both within well-equipped classrooms, laboratories and performing arts spaces and exceptional outdoor facilities. MIS is a community school where 1250+ students from 65 nationalities learn together on a single, purpose-built campus.
Munich International School promotes excellence in learning and in individual student growth and development. The School offers a wide range of After School Activities and sports as well as a comprehensive competitive Athletics programme. We recruit the most caring, competent and committed teachers and staff from more than two dozen countries. These educators create a vibrant, diverse, student-centred learning programme, supported by superior facilities and resources.
Students routinely gain admission to the world's elite universities. Our excellent academic programmes are embedded, however, in a holistic, values-based curriculum that provides support and appropriate challenge for every child.
We warmly invite you to visit us and experience first-hand how Munich International School is different.
