“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.” -Sydney J Harris
Mussoorie International School stands as the epitome of excellence in imparting value based education circa 1984. We continuously strive to achieve a new milestone in holistic development, facing learning opportunities, obstacles & challenges with zeal and enthusiasm. At MIS, we believe to be in competition with our own selves to keep aiming higher and hope to instill the same values among our students.
‘EDUCATION THAT WILL EMPOWER HER’
The pedagogy we follow is competent and contemporary. Our sole aim is to serve and make our students adept to the best teaching and learning practices & make them ready for a dynamic future. We focus on activity based experiential learning where every student is an active participant and a contributor to the learning process and curriculum.
We enable our children to meet their developmental milestones in respect to their aspects of their growth like Emotional quotient, Intelligence quotient, Technological quotient, Physical Quotient.
In academic curriculum we at MIS emphasize on both content and skill. The curriculum is child centered and encourages an integrated approach where children see linkages across various curriculum areas and are able to relate classroom learning to real life situations. Our curriculum follows blooms taxonomy pedagogy with the strong progressive education structure. “High order thinking’’ is the aim of each lesson plan. Curriculum also takes in regard slow learner through IEP and PEP programs.
We do not have one strategy for all but follow different strategy for children with different learning abilities. One strategy that we found worked for our board students
and help yield better results was the completion of the syllabus well in time and continued self evaluation- both oral and written and perform enhancement plans that help us create toppers.
Our students other than academics develop keen sense of appreciation of the final aspects of life through exposure to the arts, through Music, Visual Arts and aesthetic vocational courses. There is a plethora of musical groups, choirs and instrumental classes to learn from and many opportunities for girls to shine on stage in inter or intra school events. With rich cultural, curriculum we also have physical health improvement programs which are taken care by our physical education department.
Today, MIS is a imparting Traditional Values with a Modern Outlook from 27 countries across the world. Our greatest achievements are our students who become perfect individuals by means of morals, ethics, and values and understand our rich culture and tradition when they come out of our school.
We plan to continue building on our strengths and be the school of choice for parents from India and abroad looking to expose their children to an educational experience that is uniquely Indian but incorporating international best practices.
