What brought you to MIS?

We were living in Costa Rica for the past two years, learning Spanish and immersing ourselves into the beautiful culture. Prior to that, we lived in Boulder Colorado. We felt strongly about continuing the language and curriculum for our boys when we discovered MIS. With both the mountain lifestyle and the Spanish language, we felt we found a terrific combination.

Anything else you would like to share?

We are all so excited to settle in Missoula.
