INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION

MTIS teachers, students and parents are able to draw confidently on a recognizable common educational framework, a consistent structure of aims and values and an overarching concept of how to develop international-mindedness.

Embracing the World

As IB World School, Mark Twain International School follows the criteria chosen to define a truly global education:

• developing citizens of the world in relation to culture, language and learning to live together

• building and reinforcing students’ sense of identity and cultural awareness

• fostering students’ recognition and development of universal human values

• stimulating curiosity and inquiry in order to foster a spirit of discovery and enjoyment of learning

• equipping students with the skills to learn and acquire knowledge, individually or collaboratively, and to apply these skills and knowledge accordingly across a broad range of areas

• providing international content while responding to local requirements and interests

• encouraging diversity and flexibility in teaching methods

• providing appropriate forms of assessment and international benchmarking.

With the development of a continuum of international education – the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme – it is intended that MTIS teachers, students and parents will be able to draw confidently on a recognizable common educational framework, a consistent structure of aims and values and an overarching concept of how to develop international-mindedness.
