The school has been authorised in 2002 and reauthorised in 2008 and 2013. 18  times our school celebrated DP Graduation Ceremonies. To date the highest total grade earned by our students is 45. Students are given the right to choose 6 subjects out of 6 subject groups, including the following: Geography, History, Arts, Business and Management, Economics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics (3 levels) and Languages (English, Russian, French and Chinese). Classes in three chosen subjects are taught on a higher level (240 academic hours) and other three subjects on the standard level (150 academic hours). In addition the programme has three core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding. These requirements are: the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and Creativity Action Service. The DP course at Miras International School is taught in English.

Miras International School is international in its spirit, values as well as the student body and teaching staff, who represent 6 countries. Diploma programme teachers have a wealth of experience in the programme; many of them are IBO examiners. In Miras teaching methodology is constantly improved and developed.
