The Primary School

The curriculum followed in the bilingual primary school (years 1 to 4) complies with the requirements of the internationally recognized Cambridge International Education Programme and the Federal State of Hesse:

  • English teaching is geared to the Cambridge Curriculum.
  • Depending on your child's needs we also teach DaF (German as a foreign language) or ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) to non-native speakers.
  • German is taught according to the core curriculum prescribed in the Federal State of Hesse.

Secondary Schools

The MIS Secondary School "Gymnasium":

We offer a purely English-speaking curriculum from the world-renowned Cambridge International Programme, for international families wishing to ensure continuity in their children's education. This continuity is achieved by the internationally recognized and identical curriculum. We also provide students a social environment in which they can use their time to learn German and to experience the culture first hand.

MIS Secondary is also an accredited German High School taught according to the core curriculum prescribed in the Federal State of Hesse.

The MIS curriculum is designed to provide all our students with a thorough factual grounding at a high level in all subjects, to teach them learning methods and the most in-depth possible analytical, assessment and problem-solving skills possible.

  • Cambridge International  A Level (16 to 19 years)

Some of the teaching at the MIS is cross curricular and takes place outside the school building: excursions and course trips as well as the option of doing community service as part of the school's educational programme are firmly integrated in the school concept.

In addition to subject classes the secondary timetable also provides time for study halls in which students are able to do their homework and school exercises under the supervision of subject teachers. The subject-focused work phases integrated in the timetable provide plenty of variety during the daily routine. The school's programme is rounded off with a shared lunch and the option of taking part in after-school leisure or learning activities from 4 o'clock onwards.

Accommodation House

We are now making it possible for students to attend MIS even if they do not live nearby. We have established the MIS Boarding House.

We offer daily, weekly and semester boarding options.

The Accommodation House is a four minute walk away from the Metropolitan International School and is located on the outer part of Viernheim in a beautiful residential area in a low traffic zone.

Near the MIS House, there is a park, sports ground and open field. Also nearby are horse riding stables with equestrian clubs, an ice rink, tram station, shopping mall and a cinema. The cities of Frankfurt, Weinheim, Mannheim, and Heidelberg are relatively easy to get to by tram. The International Airport is 45 minutes away by car and approximately one hour by rail.
