The International School of Myanmar is a community of lifelong learners. Our students will acquire the skills and attitudes necessary to succeed in English speaking universities and to be caring, independent, productive and responsible citizens; ready to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

Our mission means that at ISM, students do not merely memorize and repeat information gleaned from textbooks or lectures. Rather, ISM's curriculum strives to emphasize a genuine understanding of big concepts, our materials include a variety of sources and manipulative materials, and our assessments encourage students to take intellectual risks and transfer their understanding to real-life situations.
