Find out why MIS is the best for your children

Welcome to MIS


On behalf of the MIS community, I would like to wish you a warm welcome to our online community.  MIS is the only licensed International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Medan offering the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme.  Class sizes are small, which allows your child to get the kind of focused and direct attention from teachers that will allow them to bloom. In order to offer such a prestigious program, we employ native-English speaking, certified, ex-pat teachers from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand with experience teaching in their home countries as well as in other international schools.  Many of them have advanced degrees. No other school in Medan can match the quality of our teachers and no other school offers the same level of attention to your child's needs.

MIS is the only school in Medan accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) based in the United States.  This accreditation will help to give your child access to some of the best schools in North America and around the world.  It also lets you know that your children are enrolled in a school that is continually improving its practice. Our students come from many different countries: Australia, China, England, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway and the United States.  We are truly a global community and we believe that learning in such an internationally-minded environment will better prepare your child for success in a rapidly-changing world.

In 2017 we will be opening Grade 11 which will lead to a High School Diploma (we are currently a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme). With this program, MIS will offer its students access to the finest universities around the world.  MIS is without equal when it comes to offering the highest quality education in Medan.  Please browse these pages to learn more and do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions at gerald@mismedan.org or our admissions department at admissions@mismedan.org

Kind regards,

Gerald Donovan
