and education. Nepal has a sizeable number of Indians and their contribution in
of this country is commendable. In 70’s, there was a great demand among the

similar institutions that sprouted subsequently. MIS was and still is the first
school to boast
of CBSE affiliation in Nepal and more importantly it has enjoyed the patronage
of the Indian Embassy
in Nepal. His Excellency Shri N.B. Menon in 1978 and all his successors
thereafter remain the Chief
Patron of the school. The excellent quality of education imparted, the variety
of courses and the
enviable facilities it offers, have guided the school to reach the pinnacle
where its name has become
synonymous with excellence in education.
