The SABIS® Connection

  • Individualized Learning: Because we follow SABIS® instruction and curriculum, teachers are able to better partner with students to ensure they master concepts before moving on to new material. With regular assessment and ongoing monitoring, teachers are able to engage in early interventions if students are struggling with concepts or material. 
  • Academic Excellence: While ISM has been serving our local community for over 35 years, SABIS® schools have a 135 year history of academic excellence. SABIS® develops our text books/resources which provides a strong alignment with curriculum.  Ultimately, this benefits the student experience and enhances learning.  
  • Local School, Global Curriculum: As a SABIS® school, our students are able to form global connections with students at other schools within the network. This can also include international travel to network schools in other countries!  
  • Robust Student Leadership: Our SABIS Student Life Organization® (SLO®) is more than a student counsel or leadership organization, it’s the heart of our ISM community.  This group is fully integrated within our curriculum and school community, but also looks to impact in our global community.  SLO® provides unique mentorship opportunities as well as interactions between our young learners and our middle and upper school students.
