Established in 2014, Melbourne Specialist International School (MSIS) was created to serve one main purpose – to give all children access to high-quality education, designed to meet their requirements. We want every child to achieve, aspire and succeed.
Our unique, three-pronged approach brings together the expertise of teachers, specialists, and therapists to work on the specific needs of each student, weaving creative therapies into all classroom activities.
We use an arts-based programme that draws on dance, drama, music and visual arts to teach functional English, Mathematics, and daily living skills, to deliver an inclusive curriculum where every child feels supported and actively encouraged to reach their full potential.
