The aim is to train students to become well rounded individuals and future leaders. We are looking at opening more such schools in near future.

Mussoorie International School (MIS)

As a leading school in the country for girls, Mussoorie International School has students from as many as 27 countries from around the world. They come here to enrich their lives in an environment that provides all-round development. The school offers a rich mix of the ancient and the modern – the cultural heritage of the former, and the technological, pedagogical and creative advances of the latter.

The institution prides itself in creating an ambience for learning that’s invigorating and unfolds the true potential of every child. The girls thus excel not only in academics, sports and co-curricular activities but also evolve as responsible and caring individuals. MIS aims to impart to the students, the right values & etiquettes, helping them develop confidence & poise, and instill in them the attitude for a fulfilling, balanced life. The school also gives utmost importance to discipline, character building and traditional values.

The guiding principle of MIS is to impart an integral education that is global and all-comprehensive, based on a strong foundation of Indian tradition, culture and values.

  • Integral education means complete and total education, taking into account the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual development of the child.
  • Global connotes an “Institution with a Global perspective” that uses the latest pedagogical practices, to ensure that the learning outcome is effective and cater to children coming from different parts of the world, who learn to live together in harmony.
  • All-comprehensive because the education provided is holistic and instills in the students the right virtues, moral and ethical values, and also a sense of fulfillment.
  • The school upholds the rich Indian culture and values. By articulating it in our vision, we emphasis our strength which lies in making our children get in touch with their inner magnificence.

MIS believes that every child is unique, and that by providing individual attention the immense potential within her can be tapped. Therefore we have created an environment that’s ideal for joyous learning where teachers act as facilitators, and house mothers aim to raise children who are conscious of their responsibilities.
