International Montessori Academy (IMA) is the only multi-lingual immersion Montessori school in the Seattle area serving children 18 months old through 5th grade. Our students acquire a second language in Mandarin, Spanish or Japanese naturally in our language immersion environment; advance through rigorous academic curricula; develop curiosity and critical thinking skills over inquiry-based STEM programs; and broaden their career and life opportunities as confident and compassionate global leaders.


IMA has over 140 students enrolled in two locations. Our West Bellevue campus offers preschool and K – 5th grade elementary in Mandarin, Spanish and English and our Eastgate campus offers preschool and kindergarten in Mandarin, Spanish, Japanese and English.
