Welcome to The Internationald School of Minnesota and the 2017-2018 school year.
My name is Kenneth Riggs. I am the Director at ISM and am proud to be part of the school community at the International School of Minnesota.
It’s my pleasure to introduce ISM; a diverse and inclusive international learning environment that offers students a superior college-prep education.
As a proud member of the SABIS® Network, we have the support of a global network of schools and over 131 years of experience behind us. Since 1985, ISM has been committed to providing the highest quality education to all our students to help them reach their full potential and become compassionate world citizens prepared to compete in a global economy.
Our students come from the local community and around the world and share a variety of interests and global perspectives. They are talented, motivated and actively involved in their school community through academics, activities, athletics, and our Student Life Organization®. SLO® is a remarkable program that gives students hands-on opportunities to learn real-life experiences and leadership skills. Together, ISM students thrive in an environment in which a love of learning, mutual respect, and commitment to cooperation transcend differences.
Nestled in a beautiful, wooded area in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, our 55-acre campus provides a safe home-away-from-home where students can grow and learn. There’s a special sense of belonging at ISM that you can feel as soon as you arrive.
ISM has several accreditations behind our school standards and curriculum: Accreditation International (Ai), National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA), and The Middle States Association (MSA) of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (CESS).
We invite you to learn more about ISM by browsing our site. We welcome everyone interested in our programs and community to visit our beautiful campus. To schedule a visit, please call us at 952-918-1800.
