About Us:
From school website:
Virgin Islands Montessori School and Peter Gruber International Academy offers a unique environment and learning experience to over 200 students from two years of age through High School. In 1963, the concept of a Montessori school in the Virgin Islands captured the imagination and support of a group of St. Thomas parents. A one-room building emerged in January 1964 with a preschool class of 12 students. Over the ensuing years, our school has grown steadily to meet the needs of our St. Thomas/St. John community. Today, our beautiful 7.0 acre campus offers instruction for Toddlers through 12th grade and is accredited by AMI for our Montessori Lower School and our International Academy (grades 7-12) is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization for the Middle Years Program and our Diploma Programs.

ISA is a public magnet high school (grades 9-12) located on the campus of a traditional high school. It began as a concept paper written by education profession Thomas Sergiovanni of nearby Trinity University. Opened in 1994, ISA serves a diverse population of about 465 students each year. ISA is affiliated with The Asia Society's International Studies School's Network , acting as an anchor school after winning the Goldman Sachs Prize for International Education in 2004. Recently featured in Education Week online, ISA is also recognized annually on the best high schools lists of Newsweek and US News and World Report.. Model United Nations figures prominently in the school culture: every student participates, and a core group of upperclassmen coordinates the largest MUN simulation in the country run entirely by high schoolers. One unique aspect of the school is travel: each grade level takes a week-long out-of-state trip to delve deeply into specific curricular topics such as global poverty (9th), cultural identity (10th), civil rights history (11th), and the UN Millennium Development Goals (12th). Participating in Flat Classroom projects helps ISA further its mission to prepare students to be global citizens with 21st Century skills.
