Nurturing, challenging and inspiring MIS students to be future-ready
Rapid change characterises the world into which our children will enter as adults. They will need to be ready for a future beyond our imagination, and to face challenges that require complex, global and bold responses.
Indeed, 65 % of children in school today will likely work in jobs that currently do not exist. Consequently there is the potential for an increasing relevance gap between what many students spend their days doing in school and what will serve them well in a challenging future. This means that schools must not simply strive to do the same things that they have always done better. Instead, effective 21st century schools must develop new, innovative approaches, strategies and tools that nurture, challenge and inspire students to become adaptable, independent, purposeful, life-long learners who know how to transform knowledge into action and to design, coordinate and engineer solutions to complex problems.
Our Strategic Plan, launched in our 50th Anniversary year in 2016, takes account of these evolving trends and aims to equip teachers and students with the knowledge, tools, resources and facilities to thrive and excel.
Since 2016, many of the actions arising from the Strategic Plan have already been achieved through early, generous financial and in-kind donations from our parents, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as groups such as our Parent Teacher Verein, Sportverein, the Science Innovation Fund and the MIS Foundation.
Indeed Munich International School (MIS) is able to offer extraordinary experiences to our students and community today, only because of the many parents, grandparents, alumni, current and former teachers and staff and other friends of the School who have given so generously right throughout our 50+ year history.
The ability to realise the remaining key actions of our current Strategic Plan for the benefit of current and future generations of MIS students, is dependent upon similar generosity. Read more about these plans and our new Capital Campaign MIS+ here.
