Open House

Unfortunately, the pandemic has made our on-campus open house impossible. We will replace it with a virtual experience launched on the same day and available as an ongoing resource after that. Please check back here for more details after December 15, 2020.

January 9, 2021—to be moved online

Our annual Open House provides prospective applicants with the opportunity to learn more about ISM's international, inquiry-based curriculum. Attendees can visit teachers in classrooms, take a tour, and hear a formal presentation by the ISM school leaders. This event is held in advance of the enrollment lottery application deadline of Sunday, January 31, 2021 so that families can glean helpful information to guide their application decisions. 


Visitors should plan to attend the formal presentation, fitting in a school tour and classroom visits before or after, as desired. Visitors need not attend the whole time. 

  • 9:30-10:00am: Guided school tour
  • 9:30-10:10am: Opportunity to visit teachers in classrooms

The tours will start in the Multiuse Room, which will also serve as the location for the formal presentation.
