International Montessori school has been a pillar of multicultural education in the Triangle since 1996. We opened our doors as a French immersion school and over time, added Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, all within a Montessori framework. As a nonprofit educational institution, our vision is to be a leader in global education fusing Montessori and multilingualism to deeply enrich students’ lives.
