HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
The Maputo International School, was founded in 1976 shortly after independence when all schools in Mozambique were nationalised. Since then the school has developed slowly, often in difficult circumstances, however, an accelerated development programme, which began in 1989, increased the number of classrooms and provided a most congenial learning environment. In recent years, the enrolment average has been around 900... The school caters for the children of both expatriate and Mozambican families. We have the staff and facilities to offer a first class education from pre-school to pre-university.
MIS has two campuses. The main campus is the home of Key stages 1,2 and 3 and is located in Polana Cimento, Rua da Nachingwea Nr 389. The other campus has Key stages 4 and 5 which is located in Sommerschield, Avenida Armando Tivane Nr 1961. Both campuses have halls which are used for PE (Physical Education), assemblies, plays and other activities. There are two libraries on the main campus. The school has an all-weather sports area, which offers excellent conditions for practicing various sporting activities. MIS has a modern Design and Technology workshop, Music Room, three Digital Literacy rooms, and four Laboratories in total for Chemistry and Biology.
The school caters mainly for diplomat, staff of foreign organisations and companies, with children living in Maputo, as well as a growing number of Mozambicans. We have more than 42 nationalities. The students range in age from 3-18 years and we offer schooling from pre-school to year 13. Proficiency in English is not an essential requirement because the school offers intensive English for those students who have no knowledge of the language. We also offer special English support to enable students to improve their Standard of English. Our School is a registered Cambridge Primary and Secondary School and an accredited Cambridge Exams Center.
