Today, it is known as being a truly innovative school that will challenge you to re-think how special education is taught. MSIS has a unique three-pronged approach to education. It uses a model in which a wide-range of educational and therapy services operate collaboratively within the school. This is an integrated model of service delivery in which teachers, specialists and therapists collaborate to address the specific needs of each student, embedding therapy in all classroom activities; and an arts-based program that uses dance, drama, music and the visual arts to teach functional English, functional Mathematics and daily Living Skills. In achieving a desire to meet the needs of special needs students in Singapore, Melbourne Specialist International School (MSIS) is working with various Therapist , Educational and Clinical Psychologist to deliver an innovative arts-based program that uses dance, drama, music and visual art as a means of engaging students.
