Welcome to IMS
I wish I’d gone to a school like this…
IMS welcomes applications from parents and guardians who support our Mission and are thereby interested in providing their children with the highest quality Montessori education delivered in a dual language environment. IMS admits students of any nationality, religious belief and ethnic heritage.
IMS is individualised in its approach to the admissions process as well. Applications are accepted throughout the year; however, as class placement is based on the availability of places, we suggest you apply early.
All Montessori environments at IMS are dual language, with one English speaking teacher and one native-Mandarin speaking teacher, where at least one teacher is an AMI-trained Montessori teacher. The IMS Foundation groups are designed for 2-3 year olds, and each group can have up to 16 toddlers with two teachers and an assistant guiding the small group. IMS Casa dei Bambini (ages 3-6) and Primary / Elementary (ages 6-12) classes contain an average of 25 students with two teachers. Primary students also regularly interact with specialist teachers in Art, Music, Physical Education, and Information Technology.
IMS provides a highly individualised curriculum which may be helpful with children with additional learning needs. IMS has the obligation to assure all parents that we can maximise the development benefits for each child. Depending upon the individual needs of the student, IMS does have limited ability to provide some student learning support, however care is given in admissions to ensure that the dual language Montessori environment is supportive of the child’s learning needs within the context of the classroom, and the needs of the other children. We will require the support of a recent therapist or psycho-educational evaluation to assist in the application process. To learn more about Learning Support at IMS Click here
