ISM believes that service to our local community is a valuable and necessary component of any learning community. Serving the community can be an educational, social, and emotional experience for all involved. It is a unique opportunity that allows students to develop a sense of self‐confidence and understanding of the many roles they play as productive members of society. Community service opportunities also allow students to improve their academic learning, develop personal skills and strengthen their ties to the community.
ISM defines its community as members of the school: faculty, support staff, students, sports teams, clubs, the surrounding community of Hlaing Township, and the greater communities of Yangon and Myanmar.
