Virgin Islands Montessori School and Peter Gruber International Academy is located on the beautiful island of St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. VIMSIA was established in 1964 and we offer programs for Toddler through High School. Our classes are well equipped. Our children are exceptional; our 10 acre campus is tropically lush fostering outdoor activity. 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.  

International Academy Teaching candidates must be amenable to teaching under the auspices of the International Baccalaureate Programme (www.ibo.org). All Academy teaching curriculum will be based on the IB MYP program for grades 7-10 and the IB DB program for grades 11 & 12. VIMSIA is proud to be the first and only International Baccalaureate World School in the US Virgin Islands. In April 2009 we received our IB Diploma Programme authorization for Grades 11 and 12, in March of 2010 we received our IB MYP authorization for grades 7-10.   

Montessori Teaching positions (ages 3 through 12; grades Pre-K through 6th) require an Association Montessori Internationale teaching certificate.
