Wonderful teachers and great curriculum for non-native english speaking kids. My 2 children Liam and Sophia graduated there. At the first time they couldn't speak english at all.

My sons went to IMS. It is a great place for education and for the cotmmunication between children and adults. The director is exciting and taking care of child development. I truly recommend the school.

We were just building stuff 'cause we thought it was cool. I do remember having these specific conversations with my friends where we thought, you know, someone is gonna build this. Someone is gonna build something that makes it so that people can stay connected with their friends and their family.
