Thank you for your interest in MDIS!

Our admissions process operates on a rolling basis, we are accepting applications for students in grades 1-12. When considering an applicant we recognize that every child is unique. We evaluate your child’s overall academic and developmental readiness and whether we feel they will thrive in, and benefit from, the academic challenges of our curriculum. We also consider the family’s commitment to the MDIS mission, vision, and programs, and to its distinct multicultural and diverse setting.

Once your application materials are received and assessment completed, we will have your admissions decision to you within 5 business days.
