Nurturing exceptional achievement in an extraordinary environment
Munich International School is not just another international school. Visitors see it immediately when they step onto our parkland campus. Students feel it every day through their inspiring interactions with our world-class faculty. Munich International School leverages unparalleled expertise in delivering renowned international curricula within a caring, innovative and healthy environment. We are proud of our 50 years of success at cultivating academic achievement, physical and emotional well-being and the ethical and social competencies necessary for students’ success and happiness in a rapidly changing world.
Founded in 1966, Munich International School (MIS) is an independent, non-profit IB World School (IBO) that has been authorised by the IBO since 1980. We are officially recognised by the Bavarian ministry of education and fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
Easily accessible from Munich, the School takes full advantage of its 26-acre campus in an idyllic nature preserve near Starnberg to provide students with high-quality educational experiences both within well-equipped classrooms, laboratories and performing arts spaces and in our exceptional outdoor facilities. MIS is a community school where 1200 students from more than 55 countries learn together on a single, purpose-built campus.
Munich International School promotes excellence in learning and in individual student growth and development. We recruit the most caring, competent and committed teachers and staff from more than two dozen countries. These educators create a vibrant, diverse, student-centred programme of learning, supported by superior facilities and resources, such as our:

  • performing arts centre (PAC)
  • new design and technology suite
  • 1-to-1 laptop programme (Apple MacBooks)
  • Olympic-sized 8-lane track-and-field complex
  • triple gymnasium with adjacent dance and fitness studios
  • two student libraries (primary and secondary)
  • new modern languages complex
  • differentiated outdoor play spaces for early childhood and primary years.

Students at Munich International School routinely gain admission to the world’s elite universities. Our excellent academic programmes are embedded, however, in a holistic, values-based curriculum that provides support and appropriate challenge for every child.
It is a joy to introduce new students and families to the outstanding community that is Munich International School. The Admissions and Communications Office, directed by Ms. Amanda Crawley, is the first point of contact for prospective students and parents. Ms. Crawley can be reached at +49 8151 366 120 or

Learning support



Munich International School embraces the notion that ‘schooling’ encompasses more than the learning that takes place in classrooms. We believe in a balanced education that provides students with many and varied opportunities to develop new skills and experiences beyond what they may take away from the academic programme. Our After School Activities, Arts and Athletics programmes are comprehensive. We expect students to make significant contributions to the community through our Service as Action and Community Service programmes. Some of these go beyond the campus of MIS. Our outreach programmes with UNICEF and Tanzania are two important examples of our commitment to global mindedness. We also understand that to achieve this excellence in a balanced education, we need the support of many. We value the contributions of the After School Activities Programme, MIS Foundation, Parent Teacher Organisation and Sportverein to the richness of our school community.
