Vision and Mission
Dili International School nurtures open-minded global citizens who respectfully celebrate diversity to help build an inclusive and equitable future for Timor-Leste and the world.
We pursue this goal by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and independent learners through balanced and rigorous educational programmes recognising the individual strengths and interests of all students.
We aim to inspire caring students to achieve their full potential as reflective lifelong learners who contribute in local and global communities with confidence, empathy and integrity.
