"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world."
Maria Montessori

Founders' Share: It's IMS' 20th Anniversary!

In 2001, the idea of opening a school that offered each child the opportunity to reach his or her own potential without limits through the Montessori curriculum in a Dual-Language setting, was a dream. Twenty years on, we know that this unique approach to learning and developing does indeed give our children exactly what we dreamt about, and so much more than we imagined. It is a joy to witness the sheer volume of possibilities the Montessori environment enables for each child.

From the day we opened our doors to 68 children in a converted Toy manufacturer’s office on Queen’s Road East in 2002, our story has been one of growing, moving and facing challenges with our incredible community. We have pioneered the first English-Chinese Montessori programme, and the children who started their Montessori education journey with us in our earliest years are now graduating from University! And today, our journey continues as it began, with the children.

Preparations for our year full of celebratory events began at the end of last year, when we asked our Upper Elementary Students to participate in a design project for this year’s Anniversary Logo. Click on “Logo Design Process” to see how it all resulted in our new fabulous Anniversary Logo!

And check out the other buttons with everything we are planning for this year, from Celebratory Events, to Alumni Networking and Sharing of your personal IMS memories! Some buttons will be unveiled over the coming month so stay tuned!
