To register for private transportation to and from school MTIS families simply fill out a form with the details of their destination and desired parameters, prompting a response and agreement from the school’s shuttle service.
In the classroom instruction is given with large, interactive, touch-screen displays that allow the faculty to apply their craft with all the tools of the world at their fingertips. Audiovisual capabilities, software licenses, and internet applications bring the world to the classroom and make modern instruction a seamless reality for the faculty and pupils at MTIS.
In the curriculum web design, computer sciences, and programming are elective courses available at MTIS and the hand-selected faculty have the skills and experience needed to make the education of technology both enjoyable and meaningful to pupils.
Events and Training are held at MTIS due to the brevity and quality of its instructional tools and supporting IT infrastructure. The Rotary Club of Friedrichsdorf has held ceremonies on the MTIS campus and Cambridge Internationals Examinations has even made our school an official training center; hosting seminars and professional development forums throughout the year.
School administration also takes place in the 21st century at MTIS. Everything from daily attendance to test results and progress reports is documented online where parents, faculty, and pupils have immediate access to feedback and communications from the school. Parents and pupils access the portal online, via secured logins.
We recognize that our pupils have different backgrounds and abilities. We respect those differences and we understand that supporting all of our pupils in their academic endeavors is important for creating a respectful and inclusive school community. We strive to meet any challenges that our pupils may face in their educational efforts, and our aim is to create open-minded and active learners who respect, embrace and support one another’s different abilities and academic needs. As a school, we recognize that we have a responsibility to provide equal access to the curriculum and academic rigor for all pupils, regardless of individual abilities and needs. It is our goal to implement an instructional design that modifies the written, taught, and assessed curriculum in order to meet individual needs.
We place great emphasis on the responsibilities of all teachers to be aware of and provide for pupils with special educational needs. We also believe that all pupils should take responsibility for their own learning by having an active role in identifying, monitoring and meeting their own learning needs and abilities. We, therefore, see a pupil’s education as a partnership between the pupil, the parent(s)/ guardian(s), and the school.
Pupils who require Learning Support will be given further internal and/or external assessments to identify appropriate modifications. This will be done in coordination and cooperation with the pupil’sparent(s)/ guardian(s). Support for pupils with special educational needs and abilities may include curriculum modification, enrichment activities, classroom accommodations, small group instruction, or one-on-one support. When it is determined that a pupil would benefit from additional support outside of the classroom, we will work together with the pupil and parent(s)/ guardian(s) to make the necessary accommodations.

• The Snack Bar – “Café Incontro” at MTIS provides additional support to hungry pupils in the morning break, afternoon break, and also throughout the day. Here, pupils can relax with a beverage or snack at their leisure without leaving campus or sacrificing in the quality of their nutrition.
University Counseling is provided not only to graduating pupils at MTIS but to all members of the secondary school. The process of identifying appropriate learning institutions, selecting programs of study, scheduling entrance exams, and applying to universities can often involve up to two years of preparation. The university counseling program at MTIS aims to inform, support, and prepare pupils to gain acceptance into their university of choice.
Careers Counseling runs parallel to the work of university counseling as the implications of study paths are so closely affiliated with career options. Pupils gain foresight on their own interests, desired levels of compensation, possible benefits, and work-life balance through regular counseling. The aim is to prepare our pupils for the long-term decisions they will face throughout the rest of their lives in regards to which careers they pursue.
