History of the School


Munich International School (MIS) was founded in 1966 in Harlaching and moved to its current 26 acre site near Lake Starnberg in 1968

Munich International School opened its doors on September 19, 1966, welcoming approximately 120 students, in grades Reception through Eight to its location at Harthauserstrasse 48 in Harlaching. Such was the significance to the local community, that the opening was covered by the Bavarian television and played back on the seven o’clock news that night.

In 2016, Munich International School celebrated 50 years of international education in Munich.  The writing of the School’s history was assigned to Mr Dan Glover who has 48 years of experience as a teacher at MIS. Dan has had three children pass through the School and now has a grandchild who is a current MIS students. These special connections and perspectives enabled him to focus on the past, present and future of our school.

The accounts of alumni and friends, teachers, board members parents and students were invaluable in tracing how MIS has evolved into one of the leading international schools in Europe. Please click here to learn more about the MIS 50th Anniversary History and how to order a copy.
