M.D.Gunasena International School is a part of M.D. Gunasena & Co. Ltd., an organisation that has been synonymous with education throughout its illustrious 96 year history. Since its inception in 1913, M.D. GUNASENA, as printer, publisher and bookseller to the nation, has sought to widen the boundaries of knowledge and education.
M.D.Gunasena International School was the next logical step in our corporate vision and intrinsically linked to our core activity of knowledge dissemination. That we have entered the field of direct education.
M.D.Gunasena International School seeks to make international education a uniting force in bringing together the nations, communities and people of the world. It is our belief that a true international education is the first pivotal step in creating an environment where one is judged not on the basis of religion, race, cast or creed, but on the strength of one's character.
Our aim is to provide an unmatched educational experience, which builds on the intellectual and aesthetic potential of students, while inculcating within them moral and social values that will have a lasting impact on their lives and their future. We are committed to the development of the total being and the expansion of horizons. We therefore seek to impart knowledge and build character in nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.
A mind once stretched by an idea will never shrink to its original size again. At M.D.Gunasena International School, we are that idea.
