Dr Mathew Coutts – Head of School
Dr Nissakorn Phimthong – Head of School Management

Here at MIS, we nurture students with the Montessori Curriculum, while ensuring they follow the English National Curriculum Cambridge IGCSE exams syllabus and they have both local and multinational links, so to be well-rounded individuals who are not only academically knowledgeable but who are also caring, independent and confident.

Our internationally recognized University Of Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE exams curriculum, expert teachers and caring community, coupled with our uniquely spacious and tropical campus, all combine to create a learning environment like no other.

In the information below, we share exactly how we set out to ensure that, at MIS, each child can be adventurous, can be brilliant, can achieve their full potential and most importantly, can be happy.

At MIS we believe that our students are empowered to be the future change makers, the critical thinkers who can recognize the issues and challenges ahead in the world.
