Inter-American Magnet School (IAMS), has been a leader in successful multilingual, multicultural education for over three decades. IAMS is the nation's second oldest dual language program (also known as Two Way Immersion). One of few public schools to be founded by parents, this Chicago Public School servers over 650 ethnically and economically diverse students in preschool through 8th grade from all over Chicago.
Inter-American Magnet School seeks to promote academic excellence through dual language and multicultural education. All students, including those with special needs, attain proficiency levels in Spanish, English, mathematics, science and other fields of study that will enable them to compete and excel in community, academic and professional settings. Our students gain an awareness and appreciation for diverse cultures that greatly enriches not just their time here, but their lives in general.
