School Notes

Midtown International School Highlights
  • Problem Based Learning - MIS students use research, inquiry, and collaboration to design and evaluate solutions to open-ended global problems with no easy answers.  Students tackle the world's challenges: debating censorship, drafing constitutions for imaginary countries, addressing erosion issues on campus with Trees Atlanta, and much more.  Classes of 12 students (maximum class size) create a learning environment where everyone is challenged and supported.
  • Collaboration - Our students dream big and accomplish feats beyond their years.  They work together toward goals none of them could accomplish alone, learning the value of teamwork, and understanding when - and when not - to take the lead.
  • MIS Mindset - Surrounded by their cognitive peers and equally curious teachers, the MIS student realizes that learning isn't confined to a school, but is a lifelong quest to make meaning, forge relationships, solve problems, and affect change.  We firmly believe that intelligence is potential that can be cultivated, developed, and built upon every day.  Growth mindset pervades the classroom experience for both students and teachers at MIS.
MIS students are our future inventors and entrepreneurs, scientists, artists, researchers, leaders, and change agents.  At MIS, they forge the worldview and the skills they rely upon for thought-provoking questions, unexpected insights, and a lifetime of fulfilling work.  

So what happens in a school designed for such curious, globally-minded learners?
