Our Values

We believe in a value-based education that provides national and foreign students with the information, character, and skills that are necessary to pursue a tertiary education  their full potential.

We believe in running an educational programme that is open to kids of all races, colors, and creeds. Our courses are designed to prepare students for life in modern human society.

MDIS envisions students and graduates as servant-leaders who will consciously and constructively impact the world.

MDIS Non-Discriminatory Policy

MDIS is committed to ensuring that diversity in every aspect is respected. Our educational programme is open to students irrespective of race, religion, gender, class, and cultural background.

Expected Learnings

Along with academic rigour and extracurricular activities, MDIS places much emphasis on building up the character of each student. This is done through the Expected School-wide Learning Results (ESLRs), the heart of our educational philosophy.

The ESLRs are 8 crucial traits we aim at developing through every subject, every activity, every interaction. Together, they form the acronym CHLORIDE–the element essential to our body’s health and to the chemical make-up of the ingredient that elevates the taste of food. Like salt, the ESLRs give flavour to all that MDIS strives to achieve.
