Use of technology in the classroom

Munich International School believes that a contemporary learning environment should reflect the technology-rich experiences available to students and staff outside schools. To this end MIS has, since 2008, provided one-to-one access to MacBooks for faculty and for students in grades 7-12. In addition MIS provides a very low student to device ratio of both MacBooks and iPads, as appropriate, to younger students. Every classroom has interactive whiteboard technology. There is high speed wireless access for students, teachers and the whole MIS community.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Founded in 1966, Munich International School is an independent, non-profit IB World School (IBO) that has been authorised by the IBO since 1980. 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). Munich International School promotes excellence in learning and in individual student growth and development.

Munich International School aims to:

1. ensure that the teaching and curricula effectively embrace global-mindedness and diversity and that both the taught and implicit curricula promote intercultural understanding and respect for all;

2. promote communication and actions that are culturally and socially respectful and intentionally diverse;

3. empower the members of MIS community to have positive individual and cultural identities;

4. celebrate the school's cultural diversity within the local and expatriate communities, as well as that of other social and cultural groups, and;

5. develop faculty and staff intercultural awareness, sensitivity and competence so that MIS is able to be effective models and facilitators of global-mindedness.

Teaching approach of the school

MIS embraces the notion that ‘schooling’ encompasses more than the learning
that takes place in classrooms. MIS believes in a balanced education that provides students with many and varied opportunities to develop new skills and experiences beyond what they may take away from the academic programme. MIS After School Activities, Arts and Athletics programmes are comprehensive. MIS also expects students to make significiant contributions to the community through its Service as Action and Community Service programmes. Some of these go beyond the campus of MIS. The school's outreach programmes with UNICEF and Tanzania are two important examples of MIS commitment to global-mindedness.
