At DIS, we understand that we have to prepare young people for a complex and rapidly changing world that is all but impossible to keep up with. Thus we believe in an international, multilingual education emphasizing critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and cross-cultural communication. An appreciation of differences is essential for this. The middle school experience lays the groundwork for this unique perspective.
Middle school extends from 6th grade through 8th grade. It is a time when students must put to use the knowledge and skills mastered in primary school. At this stage, students have moved beyond just learning the basics. They are faced with challenging new concepts and ideas.
