Our School

Welcome to ISM

Welcome to The International School of Minnesota (ISM) –home of the Huskies! We are proud to be rated the best private school in the state, and for good reason: we provide a transformative, character-building, safe, and academically challenging environment for students from preschool through graduation.

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

While we focus on academics and have an outstanding 100% college acceptance rate, ISM isn’t just about what’s learned in the classroom. We develop the whole student– integrating leadership and character development along with experiences ranging from performing arts, STEM, and music to athletics, travel opportunities, and more.

Our community is composed of caring and passionate professionals who devote themselves to providing the best possible learning experiences for each child. As our lead educator, I make the following commitment to students, parents, teachers, and staff at ISM.

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.

We will not only prepare your child for college success but will prepare them to adapt to an ever-evolving world through 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 a successful future.

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