The International Montessori School (IMS) was established in 2004 to provide parents in the Indianapolis area (Indianapolis, Zionsville, and Carmel) with an affordable option for high quality, early childhood education. IMS Principal and Directress, Ranee Dhadialla, combines her Montessori training with over thirty-five years of teaching experience to create a nurturing environment for early childhood development. At IMS, students gain foundational scholastic and life skills, like a genuine love for learning, while being exposed to their culturally diverse world.
