MTIS Students, ages 11 to 16, are required to take an active part in the communities in which they live.
Learning how to live in relation to others
Of the five areas of interaction - Approaches to learning, Human Ingenuity, Community & service, Environments, Health & social education - incorporated into the Middle Years Programme curriculum framework at Mark Twain International School, Community & service and
Environments are central to learning about how students live in relation to others, how they can contribute to the community and how to help others, but also about their responsibilities to the place they inhabit and to the resources they have or need.
MTIS Students, ages 11 to 16, are thus required to take an active part in their communities, to be responsible citizens in society, and to be aware of their interdependence with the environment. Many practical applications in these two areas of interaction are taken outside the classroom, in the immediate community or beyond, in social responsibility endeavours and environment actions carried out on a regular basis.
