MDIS Vision

At MDIS, our vision is to prepare our students to become creative problem solvers, effective communicators and tomorrow’s leaders who think ethically, independently, and globally.  

We believe that culture must be intentionally developed in order to live our mission, realize our vision, and achieve our educational purpose and responsibilities. Therefore, our academic focus is aligned to our school culture. Accordingly, we promote:

  1. A culture that is welcoming,
  2. A culture in which the conditions for learning are ever-present,
  3. A culture in which we examine how our behaviors affect us, others, and our world,
  4. A culture in which there is a shared belief that we are a part of something special and great, and
  5. A culture in which the language creates and facilitates personal pride, purpose, and empowerment.
