IMS prepares students to succeed in an increasingly global society as contributing, bilingual citizens, by providing the innovative combination of full language immersion with a solid academic foundation in the Montessori tradition.
Our Vision Statement
IMS’ vision is to be nationally recognized as both a model educational institution and a research site for the innovative combination of immersion education and the Montessori Method where faculty and students take ownership of their development and learning experiences. Over the next ten years, IMS will grow to the high school level through two consecutive expansion plans. Student’s unfolding process of learning will come from contact with the real world- its opportunities, its problems, and its wonders. Their Impact will touch other’s lives locally, nationally, or internationally, and they will be recognized for their innovative thinking, problem solving capabilities, and servant leadership. They will come to know, accept and love themselves for who they are. As and international community, IMS will continue to be dedicated to negotiating difference, working collaboratively and practicing compassion.
