We have a competitive programme that requires students to use higher-level thinking abilities including assessing, inventing, and analyzing.
We are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), an American accrediting body. A High School Diploma from MDIS is recognised as a standard of academic achievement by colleges around the world and by the Association of Indian Universities as equivalent to a +2 stage qualification of an Indian Board (CBSE or ICSE).
Early Years Education
Through our Early Years Education program, we are committed to give your child the best start to their learning journey. We strive to create an environment that is safe and fosters a love for learning. We encourage our students to be curious, to inquire, to explore and create and to have fun.
Our play-based approach in class allows the teachers to cater to each child’s learning style. The program is comprehensive and it ensures social and emotional development, physical development, emergent literacy, mathematical and scientific readiness, and creativity through arts.
The MDIS Early Years Education program aims to lay a solid foundation by helping our students develop the skills and abilities needed for future learning.
Elementary school (grades 1-5) at MDIS is a fun, welcoming place for students of different cultures to come together to learn. We celebrate and respect each child, recognising that everyone has their own personality, learning style, and interests. Our teachers are from all over the world and they take special care in attending to the needs of each child.
The elementary years focus on the following areas:
English Language Arts (ELA) - With each classroom having its own little library in addition to the larger school library, students are encouraged to read widely and voraciously. Reading and writing skills are honed through careful attention.
Maths - The curriculum emphasises a step-by step understanding of mathematical concepts and develops problem-solving skills.
Science - An understanding of the scientific method is key to building the students’ knowledge of science and its possibilities. Creative experiments play an important role in these classes. The annual Science Fair is a fun chance for students to showcase their scientific claims and findings.
Social Studies - Students learn about the history of the world not as a dry, theoretical subject full of dates and names but as a trove of people’s stories.
Art, Music, Drama, and Physical Education: While these are often separate subjects in themselves, our elementary school teachers incorporate and integrate these disciplines into their lessons consciously and regularly.
