Welcome to MEF International School (MEF IS) Izmir! We are a small community that celebrates the diversity that our truly international body of students, parents and faculty affords us. Our motto, “Buildings bridges between countries and cultures” captures the essence of our school. As the only international school in Izmir, we have a vital role to play: providing the opportunity for families and faculty from different countries and cultures to come together to share, support, learn and grow. This is as true for the adults as it is for the students. We are fortunate to have such a wealth of diversity to enrich our lives and learning.
