MIS students routinely excel in the areas of the arts, athletics, academics, service and leadership. With regard to academics, some parents ask how we know that our students are performing well in comparison to other schools and other school systems.
The answer: we benchmark our students’ academic performance using data from a range of innovative and externally validated assessment tools. Highlights of just a few sources of data that help us measure our students’ academic success can be found below.
- IB Diploma average 38 (comparable to a 1.6 Abiturnote): The MIS Class of 2021 scored an average of 38 points in their IB Diplomas (World average: 33), 100% IB Diploma pass rate for MIS students (World average: 89%), 87% of subject results were above IB world averages. This is a leading score among international schools in Germany and places MIS near the very top globally for academic excellence.
- Innovative MYP eAssessments – MIS is the only school in the region to offer these future-oriented assessments.
- ISA / PISA comparison – MIS students achieve superior scores compared to those in all national systems, including Finland, Singapore, China, and other international schools.
- IB Curriculum -- MIS was the first school in Bavaria to offer the programmes of the International Baccalaureate, and continues to offer an uninterrupted international curriculum from pre-school to Grade 12.
