MIS believes in the strong partnership with parents in improving the school and supporting it on its journey of education and development. Parents’ feedback and communication are vital to ensure the school is meeting its vision and mission and proposed educational outcomes. According to recent research, it is proven that children whose parents are actively involved in school and their school work are more likely to be successful.
