Integrated Curriculum Model
This model was designed by the Center for Gifted Education at the College of William and Mary to integrate content standards in all subject areas with development of higher-order thinking skills. The program has over 20 years of research and development in schools around the world.
Some examples of strategies used to integrate curriculum content with higher-order thinking skills across the curriculum include:
Foreign Language Instruction
MIS believes that today's global society sets a mandate for educators to develop foreign language competencies for all students. At MIS, all students will benefit from foreign language instruction in French, Spanish, and Chinese.
For families looking for extended time in these or other foreign languages, MIS offers immersion after school programs. The school is able to customize its after school offerings to the needs of our diverse families.
At MIS, our instructors are experts in their subject areas. These are some of the course offerings that students will participate in weekly, if not daily.
