Head of School Letter

Dear Prospective Family,

Thank you for your interest in Maryland International School (MDIS)! We understand that selecting the right school for your child is an extremely important decision. We are delighted that you are considering MDIS! We are a private, IB World School and STEM academy founded in 2017 on the five pillars of: Academically Rigorous, Supportive, College Preparatory, STEM Focus & Global Perspective, and Family & Community Involvement.

We are proud to offer a rigorous and supportive college preparatory education with an interdisciplinary and applied focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

At MDIS, the learning experiences and educational expectations, which are academically, intellectually, and personally challenging, allow students to understand complex concepts and to acquire skills that can be applied in a variety of contexts throughout their lives. For example, STEM challenges are studied from a global perspective, which provides a relevant and engaging framework to learn course content and develop feasible solutions. In addition, the social and emotional learning experiences allow students to develop self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, and self-management, all of which are critical for academic and lifelong success.

We invite you to come visit MDIS. While we hope that you will find helpful information on our website, seeing our school in action is essential. We host a number of admissions events including School Tours and Open Houses. We encourage you to connect with our Admissions Team today!

Educationally Yours,

Rebekah Ghosh
