This is concretized in its annual program of conducting local, national, and international educational field trips.

With this, MIS has embraced the vital role of connecting the classroom and community/society in increasing the students' interest, knowledge, and motivation.

These school trips resonate its consistent endeavor to relate theory to action and to instill in the students historical and cultural empathy. With renewed vigor and zest for travel.

MIS set its sails to discover and unravel what lies yonder mystifying Asia.

More audacious and resolute to go farther and further, 55 participants from both Middle and High School Departments joined the very first sociocultural excursion to the United States held on May 16-27, 2016.

This opportunity was also born out of the intitative of the Kawanua Foundation Inc. to invite MIS kolintang players to perform in the First International Kawanua Convention.
