We are honored to be able to share with you the Metropolitan International School, serving children ages 3 months to pre-university. 

We have a unique offering here at MIS, rooted in family values, innovative learning and a prestigious, bilingual education. We have five locations, with the main campus located in Viernheim, Germany, serving ages 4 through 18, as well as three Early Learning Centers (Geneva, Heidelberg and Mannheim), and a beautiful Boarding House in Birkenau in the Odenwald forest.

We also have a dedicated and diverse faculty that works hard to connect on a personal level with their students, and helps enable them to pursue their particular interests and aspirations. It is hugely rewarding for all of us who get to help build this special community, and to reinforce our school motto each and every day: 

“Cultivating empathy, a passion for the world and the love of challenge.”

MIS is all about community, it’s about curiosity, and it's about the future, providing children with an understanding of the world they will be in and the tools they need to succeed. - Laurent Cassell, MIS Principal


Kulturen - und Sprachenvielfalt - das ist es, was die MIS ausmacht. Mein Anliegen ist es, unsere Schüler*innen zum Denken, Nachdenken und Weiterdenken anzuregen. Denn Lernen entsteht aus Neugier, Überlegen, Ausprobieren und Herausfinden, auch Sprachenlernen. Sprachen brauchen wir alle, um uns einander mitzuteilen, um uns zu verstehen und zu verbinden- und um uns diese wunderbare, bunte, vielfältige Welt zu erschließen. Myriam Denzel, Fachleitung Deutsch und Französisch, Gymnasium


I like MIS because you make good friends here, the lessons are fun, the teachers are nice, and if you look outside the environment is good…and if you see plastic on the floor, kids will run to pick it up. - Zayn, 3rd grade
