VI Montessori School was founded in 1964 and became the first and only Montessori school on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. We have two Toddler, four AMI Primary, two AMI Lower Elementary and two AMI Upper Elementary classrooms. In 2009 we added the International Baccalaureate program for our 7th through 12 grades and changed our name to VI Montessori School and Peter Gruber International Academy (VIMSIA). Our school now goes from toddler through 12th grade with our Montessori program in place through Upper Elementary leading up and transitioning into our International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programs for 7th grade through 12th grade. Both programs focus on individualized, experiential and collaborative learning and we feel confident that our students are benefiting greatly from this combination of pedagogies.
The school is located on the beautiful island of St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. Our classes are well equipped. Our children are exceptional; our 10 acre campus is tropically lush fostering outdoor activity and green facilities. Our students, staff and parents join to create a loving and caring community that is diverse and unique in many ways. Our island, and school, hosts a truly global community.
