At SMIS every child is supported in their learning and growing—academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. We work as a team with parents and students to offer the very best of opportunities for every child. Our approach is quite simple—students first. By carefully assessing student development, planning with individuals in mind, and differentiating learning opportunities, we are able to meet our students’ needs. Not only do we work to identify individual learning targets for each student to ensure they are working at an appropriate level, we also consider the more holistic needs of each student. Mahdavi International School is an English-Medium Education and an English Immersion Experience. Our commitment is getting every English speaking student fully engaged in the classroom.
