Midtown International School envisions a world where learning has no limit, where access to opportunities transcend economic, social, language, racial, gender, & ideological barriers.
MIS believes in giving back to the world with each action, in forging a future that elevates the inherent value in our Earth and celebrates the humanity in each and every one of us.
What happens in a place where no one waits to learn, where classrooms are kinesthetic problem-solving laboratories, where teachers are equally curious co-learners dedicated to the values of respect, responsibility, justice, and global citizenship?

MIS GUIding principles for future buildings and site
A KEEN SENSE OF BELONGING AND COMMUNITY
MIS is an engaged and inclusive community for growing and learning. Students embrace their future place and purpose in the world, fostered by their classrooms, common areas, and the design and interconnectedness of the campus.
AGILITY FOR LIMITLESS LEARNING
Every space is an invitation to discovery, and sparks the imagination, divergent thinking, and creativity of the community. Entrepreneurialism in the students and staff is facilitated by the space rather than constrained by it.
DESIGNING FOR NATURAL SYSTEMS
As stewards of the Earth, our collaborative community innovates spaces that foster seamless connections between indoors and out. To create a place that promotes human learning for all, design relies on our appreciation and respect of the natural world to generate brain-friendly environments.
