Malpi International School

Social Studies Teacher

Malpi International School (MIS) was conceptualized in 1998 A.D. by a group of 50 idealists consisting of a multi-ethnic spectrum of doctors, engineers, architects, business people, industrialists, and educationists. The main purpose for the establishment of the institution was to help reverse the current cultural and fiscal drain that families are undergoing by having to send their children outside the country for quality education. It was the group’s vison that children in Nepal should have access to schooling of the highest quality; one that is broad based and balanced, as well as interactive and global in dimension. They had felt the need for a school that would help to produce future leaders with deep-rooted cultural grounding and love for one’s country, and yet, with the confidence to forge ahead in the regional and international area. The School site was chosen with care, with an eye to the natural splendors of the environment and yet proximity to the capital. The surroundings are sylvan and rural, with a village nearby to cater to the School’s needs.
