A Brief Summary of Who We Are

Understand our ideals and history


We have a rigorous program that challenges students to employ higher-level thinking skills such as evaluating, creating, and analyzing. At Metro Delhi International School (MDIS) we operate an American educational program that is based on the Common Core State Standards.
We are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), an accrediting body functioning out of America. A high school diploma from MDIS acts as your child’s path to enrolling in international universities and colleges. A graduate diploma from MDIS is recognised by the Association of Indian Universities as equivalent to a +2 stage qualification of an Indian Board (CBSE or ICSE).

Expected Learnings

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 School-Wide Learning Results

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.
