Update on Return to School

I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the beautiful summer weather. I sincerely appreciate your patience as we work through the process of developing a plan to return to school as safely as possible.

IAM students will resume online remote instruction on Wednesday, August 12. This remote learning schedule will be in place from August 12 - September 4. We will run our typical A/B schedule, beginning with an A day on Wednesday, August 12.

Whether we are online or in-person, IAM students will receive the high quality and rigorous academic instruction from the amazing and talented IAM teaching staff. We look forward to the start of the new school year!

Schedule After Labor Day

I collaborated with educators at Chippewa Valley Schools on a committee to develop plans to return to school for the 2020-2021 school year. I will share plans as soon as decisions are made; that schedule will commence after Labor Day starting on September 8. Planning is always contingent on state and local protocols.

Big picture

Outstanding IB Diploma Results

I am extremely pleased to share that we had a 94% IB Diploma acquisition rate for the Class of 2020! That is up 3% from the previous year.

Despite the challenges the pandemic presented to our community, the students rose to the occasion and persevered. The teachers' commitment and dedication is inspiring, especially during this time. I am proud of the students for continuing to work diligently and I am proud of the teachers for supporting them to get there!

Student Schedules

Schedules will be available in the student portal on August 6th. Contact Mr. Garcia if you have any scheduling questions as he returns from summer break on August 6th, too.

Welcome 9th Grade Students!

New 9th grade students--welcome to the IAM Family! We’re excited you’ve decided to join us for your high school experience!

Mark your calendars for August 10th from 2:30pm-3:45pm- Freshmen Virtual Orientation!

Link Leaders will email the 9th graders to their school emails, the link to join them on a Zoom call, and run the orientation from there. All 9th graders are expected to participate in this and make connections with their peers and their Link Leaders. You will receive more information as to how to access your school email soon.

Due to the high demand for laptops, there is a delay with the order for the 9th grade laptops. We hope to have them out to the students by mid to late September. In the meantime, if you do not have a laptop or personal device that you can utilized for remote learning, please follow the laptop form link and we will provide a temporary laptop. Please respond by Friday, July 31st.
