About us

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.

Both programmes, PYP and MYP, are authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization and Malmö International School is officially an IB World School for students aged 5-16.

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

The school is publicly funded and founded by the City of Malmö in response to the growing demand for a truly international education. Being publicly funded gives us the opportunity to offer a very high level of education free of any charge.

MIS has since June 17, 2019 new premises. The school has been moved out from the former "Pildammsskolan" to the newly built "Limhamnsskolan". The plan is for MIS to reside at the new location for approx. five years. The final destination for Malmö International School will be in Hyllie 2024.
