ABOUT PRINTS

MISSION STATEMENT

Pacific Rim International School (PRINTS) cultivates in students essential life skills through its focus on self-development, bilingualism, and internationalism within an AMI-accredited Montessori, dual-immersion environment.

Welcome to PRINTS

Welcome to Pacific Rim International School, fondly known in our community of exceptional learners as "PRINTS"! We are delighted that you are considering our school with its unique bilingual program, and hope that you will come and visit us soon!

For over 30 years, PRINTS has offered an exceptionally fulfilling educational experience for local families – a full and authentic Montessori experience in a dual immersion environment. Each of our tailored learning environments allows children to learn in either Mandarin and English, or Japanese and English. Starting in Fall 2021, our infant to primary levels also offer a Spanish and English program. PRINTS has fully trained AMI Montessori guides at every academic level. So whether you have a newborn (our innovative Infant Center is the first of its kind), toddler (we are much more than a preschool or childcare center!), elementary, middle school, or high school student, PRINTS has the program appropriate for your child's level of academic, social, physical, and emotional development.

We are the first Montessori school in the world that includes Mandarin, Japanese, and Spanish, and the only Montessori school in the San Francisco Bay Area that holds the full AMI accreditation for children from infancy through to high-school age. We pride ourselves on our nurturing guidance, one based on a deep understanding of child development and careful observation of each individual child.

Please enjoy our website! Better yet, make an appointment to come to one of our local campuses. We are confident that you will see the PRINTS difference!
