The best way to see if IMS is a good fit for you is to visit us during a school day. You’ll get to walk the halls, attend class and meet some of the people who make IMS more than a school. You’re invited to visit us on one of our official visit days (a great chance to meet some future classmates) or contact us to set up a personalized visit day that works for you. If you have questions about any upcoming events or about IMS, please contact Candi at 319-656-2073 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

First Look Fridays
First Look Fridays are new open house events for transfer students and/or their parents and 7th-8th grade students and/or their parents. These will be held the first Friday of every month and are designed to be days you can drop in for a tour and see classes, chapel, etc. in action. These are not shadow days, but rather a chance for us to introduce ourselves to you and to see if you’d like to come back for a Visit Day to shadow a student.
November 2nd will be our first one. Then the dates will be December 7th, January 4th, February 1st, March 1st, April 5th, and May 3rd.
