Classrooms are a blend of traditional & modern and fully equipped with the latest technology. 

MIS ensures small class sizes for maximised student engagement and individual attention.


Dining facilities are available for students and staff to use at MIS. Menus are carefully designed to ensure the quality and nutritional suitability.

  • Food will be provided seven days a week for boarding students – breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Lunch will be provided five days a week for day school students (breakfast and dinner are optional at an extra cost)

Relaxation & social areas

As many students are boarding and hail from all corners of the globe, it is important to create an environment where students feel they are in a “home, away from home”. Facilities include but are not limited to: ping pong tables, tennis court, football and basketball courts, indoor sports facilities, student cafés, social areas and much more.


There are many opportunities for students to take part in extra-curricular activities including visits to the famous Château Chillon, the Olympic Museum and outings to the nearby water parc – Aquaparc.
