Innovation for Passions


*Visit our Sports Club Page

MTIS offers a school concept that accommodates and maximizes attention to the talents and passions of its pupils. Supplemental training from top professionals within the school day and flexible scheduling provide time and space to pursue passions in sports, music, visual arts, performing arts, and chess. A sponsoring program has also been established to aid families of highly talented youngsters with the costs of our school. Alongside these measures are various modern, innovative after-school programs that aim to enhance the learning experience and add value for our families.

Flexible Timetable Concept

An innovative approach to timetabling enables MTIS to incorporate the comprehensive extracurricular activities with regular lessons. Treating these extra units of instruction as regular subject matters in school not only allows for a higher concentration level but also a more structured development in each respective discipline.

Time blocks have been created on three days per week where in-house professionals can work with their pupils intensively on their craft. The timetable is also accommodating to the excessive travel that goes along with being a talented youngster with many obligations and events outside of the school.
