Middle and High School
Its goal is comprehensive education focused not only on expanding knowledge and skills (both academic and communication or social), but also on the development of one’s personality and shaping the attitudes of tolerance, understanding, and responsibility. As classes in international schools are conducted in a foreign language (usually English), they provide extraordinary language skills development opportunities. At Milestone International School we also offer a wide range of additional language classes.
The goal of our ESL programs at Milestone is to help students achieve comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing competence in the English language to help students keep grade status and to enable students to meet graduation standards.
Mathematics is the language of nature. We learn Math to understand nature better and to develop new products inspired by nature.

Geography is an Earth Science studying the earth and its environment. It is so wide that it branches into various levels of specialization as one climbs up the ladder. Geography enables humanity to grasp the cause and effect of mankind’s actions on earth. It is through geographic inquiry that mankind is now living in space-age. Geography has been there since the dawn of mankind as evidenced by early explorations and expeditions that made mankind reach all corners of the earth. Through Geography, humanity has come to realize the vulnerability of the earth thus now becoming conscious of sustainable practices that can extend life on earth. Geography serves as the foundation of other professions such as aviation, astronomy, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Without Geography, world citizens are ignorant of their home and what surrounds their planet.
Chemistry helps you to understand the world around you. Why do leaves change color in the fall? Why are plants green? How is cheese made? What is in soap and how does it clean? These are all questions that can be answered by applying chemistry.
Physics is simply all around us and to explore ourselves and the universe we must study physics. Physics studies everything from the very small, to the very big, galaxies and of course everything in between. It examines why something is moving, how is it moving, how is it moving like this and not any other way, and what is happening when it is moving, so physics is a science subject, but it is also the art of questions and in the question, lies half the answer. Physics helps us to understand the logic behind everything so this absurd life around us will make sense.
Biology is at the heart of many social and economic issues. As a field of science, biology helps us understand the living world and the ways its many species (including humans) function, evolve, and interact. Advances in medicine, agriculture, biotechnology, and many other areas of biology have brought improvements in the quality of life.
History is more than studying the past. As we study history, students develop the skills to think critically about our world’s past and present. By understanding the people and events that came before us, we can establish a brighter future. Studying history helps us understand and grapple with complex questions and dilemmas by examining how the past has shaped (and continues to shape) global, national, and local relationships between societies and people.

STUDENTS’ LEARNING JOURNEY AT MILESTONE:
Learning can be linked to dinner parties. When the learning process is dull, students tend to lose focus. Conversely, when they are lively, students maintain their focus and even better grasp what they are being taught. Student engagement is key to student learning and success.
At MIS we structure students’ learning journey by making it more engaging and this results in stronger achievement in subjects, a stronger satisfaction with their learning experience, and increases in the rate at which students graduate. Student engagement refers to the degree of curiosity, optimism, interest, attention, and passion students portray when undertaking any subject at Milestone.
Here at MIS, we strive to connect the students learning process to the real world. Many students often wonder how some of the things they learn at Milestone school will impact their lives. The best way of connecting such thoughts is by engaging students with content that they know has relevance to them beyond their school life. Teachers at MIS can achieve this by using real-life examples and case studies outside the classroom when handling various topics.
Our students at Milestone occasionally are organized into small groups to break the monotony of reading books predominantly. Study groups enable students to share their perspectives on different subjects with their peers. Consequently, it helps them become more articulate in presenting their viewpoint.
Milestone has a contemporary approach to learning, based on leading educational research. Through the use of flexible learning spaces and teacher expertise, we aim to achieve the best outcomes for every child. The school design and adaptability of spaces make it easy to navigate through the school and are designed to maximize learning benefits.
There is always an argument that extracurricular activities are not so much important in a child’s life. At Milestone we believe it to be different, it is important for the development of the child, and extra activities are also most important in a student’s life. Students are pressurized during exams, and they have performance pressure to of gaining good grades. In such conditions, there is a need for some extra activities. You cannot force a student to just read books and become intelligent.
Extra activities are also important for the overall development of students. Sometimes when a school offers sports and extra activities parents do not allow their children to participate. Some students also feel that they do not need the activities, all they need is to concentrate on their books in many schoolteachers must convince parents to permit their children to participate in activities. Parents feel that extra activities will distract their children from their studies.
Co-curricular activities are important just as academics. When a student is made to do academics and co-curricular activities then only a well-rounded development of the student is done
Students have lots of activities to choose from. Cultural activities, sports activities, competitions, house-on duties, and a lot more. Some students are even interested in more than one activity, and they do participate in both keeping in mind their academics.
Students who participate in extra activities get better grades. This is because of the skills they learn from participating in different activities. Students learn to manage time, and organizational skills, and improve self-confidence. Students also learn to express themselves in a better way.
Students participating in extra-curricular activities learn new skills which are useful in school life. Skills like teamwork, time management, management of any activity, how to lead a group, and many more extra skills. Students who participate in sports and other activities have better leadership skills and learn how to grow and build relations with one another.
Students who participate in extra-curricular activities learn how to commit to a particular thing they are involved in. Extracurricular activities are of utmost importance in a student’s life. Students who get involved in extra activities meet new people and because of that their social skills are improved. Students can expand their network which is also beneficial in finding better career opportunities.
