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 or, as we say in Indonesia; Selamat Datang.  MIS is Medan's International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme (DP).  Part of our educational philosophy is that class sizes are kept 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 in education. 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 to be 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 externally evaluated by international educational organizations. 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.

We are now authorized to offer the IB Diploma Programme. With this program, MIS students will be able to gain entrance to the finest universities around the world, in many cases with course exemptions.  MIS is without equal when it comes to offering the highest quality education in Medan.

Kind regards,


Gerald Donovan
