Our School

North Woods International School offers preschool through fifth grade students a strong academic curriculum that integrates global education and international education into daily lessons.  Our curriculum is linked to world events, geography, and world cultures.  Through this program students gain an understanding that all people share common needs and have differences that should be recognized and valued.

 Buzz Sessions with Mrs. Brauer!

In an effort to stay even further connected, this year Mrs. Brauer will be hosting monthly “Buzz Sessions with Mrs. Brauer.” These sessions will provide you further opportunity for informal conversations about what’s happening at school, and to stay connected.
