MIS seeks students who benefit from the learning program, who can bring their talents, skills, imagination and curiosity to the MIS school community, as well as families that can reinforce and bond with the Madison community.


What are the requirements to start the admissions process?

To start the admission process each student must complete the application for admission and send the following:

  • Birth Certificate
  • CURP/Federal ID Number
  • Report Cards from the last three school years (if applicable)
  • A Good Conduct Letter from Current School

Is there a waiting list?

Yes, we have students on the waiting list for many of our grades. Students who have completed the admissions process and are considered qualified may be asked to join the waiting list due to space limitations. Students on the waiting list who cannot be admitted to the current school year have the option of waiting and completing the admissions process for the following year.


How do I know if my child was accepted?

After applying the exams to the student, the family will have a feedback interview with someone from the Academic Administration. This person will present the results of the evaluations and will extend the registration form to continue the admissions process, if accepted.


My child has already been accepted, what process does he/she follow?

If the student was accepted, families will have two weeks to pay the registration fees in order to secure the place.


What happens if my child was not accepted?

If your child is not accepted, then the school will notify you of the decision and the reasons for the decision.
