The Munich International School
The Munich International School provides a co-educational, international, English language learning environment for students aged 4-18.MIS creates within its students a spirit of responsibility for themselves and others in the school environment, the host country of Germany, and the global community. Founded in 1966, all parents are members of the MIS Association, a tax exempt, non-profit organization, which elects the Board of Directors.
The academic programme of the school is designed to prepare students for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, a broad range of IGCSE exams and the College Board exams. A high school diploma is given on the successful completion of grade 12. The junior school follows the curriculum of the IBPYP. The IBMYP is offered in grades 6-10, and the IB Diploma in grades 11 and 12.
The student body represents over 50 countries, with students from United States, Great Britain and Germany being the most numerous. Ninety-five percent of the graduates go directly to university.
The school calendar runs from late August to late June. There is a strong after-school curriculum of fine arts and sports.
The school campus is on the grounds of Schloss Buchhof, near Starnberg, 20 kms south of Munich. On 25 acres of land, the students benefit from modern and well-equipped facilities.
