Welcome to ISM’s Admissions Office

Dear Prospective Families,

Whether enrolling for the first time or transitioning your child to a new learning environment, choosing the right School setting and academic program for your child’s education is rightly so, a family-wide experience. From humble beginnings in 1998 on a vacant floor of a nondescript office building, the notion of a better education for Myanmar children was hatched into the International Child Zone (ICZ) and brought to life by Daw Hla Hnin Khine and a few of her select and closest friends.

At ISM, we are family! The Admissions process as well is similarly family-oriented. We are dedicated to making this process smooth and easy.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in the International School of Myanmar as the next step in the educational process for your children. As a School, we look forward to guiding and mentoring you and your child through the entire educational process from admission to graduation.

Admissions Overview
