Our vision is to assist children in their development to become independent and self-thinking individuals who work to create a better world for themselves and others.


Our mission is to:

  • Help children develop their complete personality
  • Support children in becoming confident and enthusiastic lifelong learners
  • Contribute to peace and understanding by developing respect and valuing differences

An atmosphere in which children:

  • Feel safe and secure
  • Develop independence
  • Have opportunities to make choices and decisions
  • Receive built-in feedback

A positive learning environment:

  • An aesthetic surrounding that requires care
  • Equipment that allows individual interaction
  • Multi-age range allowing varied social interaction

  • Balance of freedom and boundaries
  • Opportunities to become responsible
  • Knowledge through integrated subjects
  • Holistic education

International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate Secondary programme has been selected by the school as a follow up to the Montessori Primary section due to its compatibility. This starts with the mission statements and continues with practical implications. The IB focuses on international mindedness and skill-based learning, which are also cornerstones of the Montessori pedagogy.

Welcome to our website
The International Montessori School offers a thoroughly prepared and beautiful learning environment, supporting the complete development of children and students from the ages of 1 to 18. A bilingual approach together with the Montessori Pedagogy and the International Baccalaureate Secondary Section (IB MYP and DP) prepares children and young adults for life.

We focus on all aspects of the personality and help children to gain trust in themselves in order to feel confident and empowered, both within their social group, and the world at large. This, together with balance in freedoms and logical boundaries and the guideline that “your freedom ends where someone else’s freedom begins” helps children to become responsible individuals who look after themselves, their environment, and others!

We hope you enjoy our website and find useful information on the details involved in assisting towards the development of a harmonious personality.
