The Mother's International School (MIS) is a private secondary school in New Delhi, India. It is an establishment of the Sri Aurobindo Education Society, an agency of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. It shares its campus with the New Delhi branch of the Ashram. The school is an English-medium co-educational institution affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

In 2001, Outlook's "C-Fore Best School Survey" had ranked MIS as the best school in Delhi.[1]

The school's motto "More True, Forever More True" was given by Mirra Alfassa and the school's emblem portrays a bird in flight rising towards heaven. When asked about the date of the school's opening, the Mother replied "23456". And as the only possible date was 23 April 1956, it was this day that the school first opened.

When the school started out, a batch (or a grade) was of about 15 children, but today a batch has 180 students. The school has three wings, the Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary.

MIS follows the philosophy of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, and places a strong emphasis on integral education, which aims to develop the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a student's personality.

The school offers education from pre-primary to senior secondary level (nursery to class XII).

The school has a well-equipped library, science and computer labs, music and dance rooms, and a playground for sports activities. MIS also provides various co-curricular activities such as art and craft, yoga, karate, and public speaking.

The school has a strong focus on community service and encourages students to participate in various social and environmental initiatives.

The Mother's International School[2] has a reputation for academic excellence and has consistently produced outstanding results in the CBSE board exams.

The school has also been awarded the International School Award by the British Council for its global perspective and international collaborations.
