  • At International Montessori School, your child will receive an excellent education combined with the invaluable gift of fluency in a second language and access to a world far beyond the walls of any school.
  • All of our programs are based on the Montessori philosophy, taught by native or near-native speaking teachers in Mandarin Chinese, French, or Spanish depending on the target language selected at enrollment. IMS serves a very diverse group of students and families from various backgrounds and experiences.
  • The beauty of our diverse community is that we all bring a different perspective which provides all of us new opportunities to grow, to learn, and to connect with others.

My children have been enrolled in the french programs at IMS since 2008. I can't say enough about the school, the teachers, the curriculum, the peace based emphasis on interactions - I unconditionally recommend IMS to anyone interested in quality immersion experience with the phenomenal montessori platform.

IMS is a wonderful school that promotes biligualism and the Montessori Curriculum providing their students with strength of character. They spend more time providing individualized education and treatment to their students than any school I''ve ever seen. The children there thrive and love to be at school.

Could not have asked for more caring and loving teachers. My child is happy and loves school and that says it all.
