Opening August 2013 for Grades K-5
Midtown International School is opening August 2013 serving grades K-5. Our campus is located in Midtown Atlanta. We will be adding grades 6-8th beginning in the fall of 2014. MIS is uniquely designed for gifted, high-achieving, and twice exceptional students.
Midtown International School is intended for students who learn best in very small class environments, with exposure to a globally-minded curriculum and variety of instructional strategies. Our foreign language instruction, dedicated math and science teachers, and commitment to 21st century learning provide an exceptional foundation for our bright young learners to succeed in school and in life. For more details about our program, Discover MIS.
If you are unable to attend one of our Prospective Parent Meetings, please schedule a more personalized informational session with the Head of School.
Our architects, builders, community partners, and capital campaign contributors are working diligently to complete all facility renovations. We are currently ahead of schedule! If you would like to be a part of our founding team, please contact the Founder, Ande Noktes.
We have a few opportunities remaining for facility sponsorships. If you would like to make a charitable contribution to purchase an entire room in the name of your choice, please contact our capital campaign chairperson.

Four MIS Faculty attended the National Curriculum Network Conference last week at the College of William and Mary's Center for Gifted Education. What a fantastic opportunity to build relationships and practices that will move students who may be just "fine" in a regular classroom into achieving their full potential. We have long lamented the challenges that face high-achieving students and their families, and appreciated the chance to grow in our roles as their advocates.

We were in San Francisco last week at the Learning & the Brain Conference, collaborating with neuroscientists, researchers, and 1500 educators from around the world. We're energized by the keynotes that confirm our commitment to new learning models for innovation and creativity. Our strategies and curriculum are not only reflecting current research, but are uniquely bringing this new knowledge into the realm of practice.
