“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”

A Sense of Community

At MYIS, our children are active members of a lively, diverse and supportive community. Our community consists not only of our students and teachers, but also of parents, families, and people in our neighborhoods.

The community is characterized by a warm, welcoming and family-like feeling. Our children thrive in such an atmosphere as they quickly gain confidence and develop trust in others and in themselves.

Unity in Diversity

MYIS is a community where our diversity is celebrated and every member is valued. Educating children that they belong to a global community is one of our most valued goals. Another equally important objective is creating opportunities for our families to come together and learn from each other.

As a community of learners, we collaborate with groups from different backgrounds and diverse roles. This learning experience encourages risk-taking, tolerance, communication and understanding. Above all, it creates a spirit of unity, which transcends cultural barriers and provides our students a lasting impression of the inherent beauty in our world.
