Since its founding in 1922, Indian Mountain School (IMS) has encouraged its students to pay great attention to social service: the values of honesty, compassion, and respect determine the goals of teaching and schooling. The school offers permanent residence or full-time education for students from 4 to 14 years. Academic education is supported by numerous elective courses aimed at the comprehensive development of students. Programs for pupils living in a boarding school include a variety of leisure activities, family-style dinners, celebrations, and a warm and supportive school culture.

The school uses a technological approach to learning, so that students can actively interact with the outside world, the achievements of modern science. Outdoor events have been an integral part of student life since the opening of the institution due to its excellent location: mountainous terrain, forests, clean air. Adventure Education teaches students to interact with nature, to appreciate and protect it.

About 250 students take the school annually: about 100 of them are boarders of 5–9 grades, representing 10 US states and more than a dozen international countries.
