Dear Parents and Guardians,

As a parent, deciding where to send your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. ISM - The International School of Minnesota is the school of choice for many parents based on a variety of factors, including a proven educational system, a global proprietary curriculum, and shared core values of The SABIS® Network of Schools. 


The school community at ISM is comprised of caring and passionate professionals who devote themselves to providing the best possible learning experiences for each child. Our school is dedicated to our stakeholders, and as we look forward to uniting for the upcoming school year, we will work to connect with each of our families.


As an educator, I make the following commitment. The International School of Minnesota team will: 

  • Foster a culture in which all stakeholders are connected to our educational community.
  • Challenge students to reach their full academic potential.
  • Provide pathways for students to explore their talents beyond the classroom, and celebrate their accomplishments.
  • Champion diversity and celebrate all students as equals, regardless of nationality, religion, race, or identity.
  • Create opportunities for students to develop a greater sense of self, and their benefit to the community.

ISM’s academic and administrative leadership will focus on your child as a whole. We will teach every student to be accountable for their futures while helping them design a clear path to reach their goals. Your child will not only be prepared for college success, but also be prepared to adapt to an ever-evolving world, and to understand the value of learning from a global perspective.


We will prepare your child to be a citizen of the world through academics, the pursuit of individual interests, and meaningful engagement within our community.


At our school, every child is known, valued, and challenged. On behalf of our entire ISM staff, we thank you for putting your faith in us to prepare your child for their successful future.


We look forward to welcoming your family into our school family. Go Huskies!
