Education is an investment.....

"The education proved itself when our daughter was searching for colleges.  She not only got into the school of her choice, but she also received a full merit scholarship at a very competitive school."

Although ISM's tuition ranges from $17,950 to $21,000, the return on your investment will be worth it.

We are commited to:

  • providing a rich curriculum
  • not leaving it up to chance, no child is left behind
  • attracting and retaining the highest quality faculty
  • providing experiences outside the classroom, from community service to global awareness and activities
  • maintaining top notch facilities

We understand that educating your child at a private school is a BIG commitment and we want to help.  Visit our Financial Aid page for more information.

"ISM is a great place for my son to get a strong education to help him succeed at a college level before he even graduates.
I highly recommend ISM if you want your child to attend a school that prides itself on education, rather than just being a daycare center for teens like most public schools."

"Our little one has been at ISM since Kindergarten and she absolutely loves it, hence, so do we!  It's obvious that the teachers and administrators there love what they do and are invested in each child.  She is learning so many things, foreign language, music, art, everything to get her ready for college.  The school follows a great program made by SABIS®, a company that has more than 131 years of experience.  With that experience we do not doubt we are giving our daughter the best education possible."
