Main Taunus International School completes final hurdle in the authorization process, receives authorization letter to become IB World School, Diploma Programme (DP).

The authorization letter from the IB arrived on Thursday FEB 16 and the entire school could not be more proud of the achievement – Our Main Taunus International School is an IB World School.

As an IB World School MTIS becomes part of a global community of schools committed to developing knowledgeable, caring young people who will be ready to negotiate their futures successfully and make contributions resulting in a more than harmonious and peaceful world. The MTIS teachers, administrators, students, and families can be proud of their choice and authorization to offer the Diploma Programme (DP). The positive results of this choice will become evident in our community as classes of DP students graduate and undertake activities that enhance social, cultural and economic environments locally, nationally and, perhaps, internationally.

Becoming an IB World school is the start of another exciting educational journey. Many thanks to all those colleagues, who worked hard to make it possible.” – Dr. Vivian Papafakli-Strouza – Director

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an assessed programme for students aged 16 to 19. As of 22 May 2015, there are 2,795 schools offering the DP, in 143 different countries worldwide and MTIS is certainly proud to join this company.

“MTIS now has the very best academic programs in the world at every level of our school. This proves the quality of our school and gives us a great opportunity to grow and become a premier international school.” – Hans-Peter Dahlmann – CEO and School Owner

The IB authorization completes the academic program and offerings of the secondary school as the Cambridge program (IGCSE) has already been authorized and in place for one year in grades 9 & 10. Offering the DP is the final step at MTIS as there is now a program in place to finish the curriculum in 12th grade, sending our students to great universities across the globe. The DP is respected by leading universities across the globe and allows MTIS to attract the best and brightest students from around the world to our campus while offering the very best for the students already here.

Now there is truly nothing in the way of MTIS becoming a premier international school of the Frankfurt area, offering its families the very highest level of education from start to finish.
