MRIS-51 believes that, “it shouldn’t matter how slowly children learn as long as we encourage them not to stop”. The staff believes that special education does not mean that the child is incapable of learning it means they need continuous specially designed support in order to succeed. MRIS in its endeavour to give optimum support to children with special needs follow inclusive education policy to the core. Inclusive education has been successfully embedded into the school system in such a way that children with special needs have comfortably adapted the mainstream learning with support. Inclusive education at MRIS aims at ensuring multi-sensory approach to instruction and assessment, integrate students into mainstream classroom through Differentiated Instruction, ensure continuous improvement in learning and most importantly develop the confidence and personality of the student to serve as a productive contributing global citizen.
