Malmö International School

Malmö International School (MIS) provides education for students aged 6 – 16. MIS is a publicly funded English speaking school founded by the City of Malmö in response to the growing demand for a truly international education.

The geographical position of Malmö in the south of Sweden makes it an attractive centre for European and international companies.

MIS is a place where our aim is that each and every student feels successful, appreciated and involved. The school is an international school where different cultures meet in unity, mutual respect and understanding.

MIS strives to create an atmosphere where intellectual growth, personal reflection and international mindedness are the main concerns of everyone. Our primary goal is to prepare our students for lifelong learning. 

MIS adheres to the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes of study: PYP and MYP. 
The IB Learner Profile is the core of both programmes.

The International school, Primary Years Programme (students aged 6-12) has been authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) and is officially an IB World School.

After-school care is available up to the age of 12.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) at MIS is in the candidate phase to become an authorized IB MYP school for students aged 12-16.
The IB MYP is a framework for the curriculum taught and incorporates the Swedish National Curriculum as the basis for the subject content. The students in the MYP receive assessments according to IB criteria together with Swedish grades, which enables them to enter higher education in Sweden and around the world. 


Our vision is to inspire development and cooperation to promote future international citizens, with tolerance and understanding, who can make a difference in the world.
