This status allows our graduates to have privilege when they enter Universities and colleges abroad, whereas IB DP graduates have the opportunity to be enrolled in best Universities all over the world without taking examinations. "Miras" School graduates receive internationally recognized documents about education (MYP Certificate or Record of Achievement after the G10 and IB Diploma after the G12). At the same time "Miras" school graduates receive State documents (Attestat and UNT Certificate) after the G11.

"Miras" is not only educational institute, but first of all it is an international community of students, teachers and parents, which represent a big friendly family with the basis of respectful attitude to different cultures, international mindedness and effective cooperation. Educational philosophy in our school is based on investigative approach, conceptual, holistic understanding of nature of all things and effective interaction.

We recognize the importance of the Kazakh language and culture and endeavour to promote these.
