Our School Philosophy

It has a nurturing environment where people shine!

At Modern High School International we aim to provide a stimulating environment, rooted in the belief that every experience provides opportunities for learning and growth. As a school we acknowledge that every child is unique.

Modern High School International prides itself on being a school that has been founded upon the 70 year-old legacy of Modern High School for Girls. It aims to promote creative and critical thinking in the classrooms, delivering an international curriculum that is rooted in local tradition and context. The curriculum focuses on honing 21st century skills and competencies, namely: collaboration, communication, ICT and digital literacy, social or ethical responsibility and international mindedness.

The school helps students discover their own potential by providing opportunities for academic excellence alongside opportunities for participation in a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The curriculum offers opportunities for sports, arts, music, community service and value education aiming to broaden students’ educational experience and challenging them to apply their knowledge and skills in newer contexts. These myriad experiences focus on helping students build resilience and adaptability.

Our well-integrated student population comprises children from different communities and socio-economic backgrounds. Our smart classrooms focus on building conceptual understanding rather than content-based knowledge encouraging a culture of enquiry, thinking and reflection. We boast of a system that recognizes personal attributes such as integrity and diligence in addition to talent and achievement. We pride ourselves on being a learning organisation ensuring opportunities for learning and professional development for all members of our school community.
