Description:
Open House - Preschool through 8th Grade

Founded in 1995, the Missoula International School (MIS), a nonprofit, independent preschool through eighth grade school, offers unique and challenging 21st century educational opportunities for students in the greater Missoula area. In 2009, MIS became the flagship school in the Northwest as a Primary Years Program (PYP) International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. The school provides an inquiry based learning environment through an IB education in a full Spanish language immersion environment within a multiage setting. Full language immersion has been proven to increase cognitive development, literacy, cultural understanding and self-confidence. This approach along with class sizes that allow for individual attention and deeper relationships within the school community results in inquiring, knowledgeable, confident and caring global citizens.
