Stowers Elementary Magnet School of International Studies is a International Baccalaureate World School, part of the IBA and IBO. Our mission is to develop in our students a sense of international awareness, based on six trans-disciplinary themes. We are educating our students to be able to interact, converse with, and understand their own, as well as other cultures, with the goal of instilling in them a love for lifelong learning and appreciation for the world as international citizens.

Our students represent cultures from around the world. On a daily basis they exemplify the learner profile and work to create a world where they can do anything, be anyone and achieve the impossible.

Through our challenging international academic program and rigorous assessments, we encourage our students to become active, compassionate and learners who understand that other people, with their differences can also be right.

At Stowers Magnet School of International Studies, your child is our priority and we always go...Above and Beyond!

Transdisciplinary Themes

  • Who we are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How we express ourselves
  • How the world works
  • How we organize ourselves
  • Sharing the planet
What is a Magnet School?

A Magnet School is one that is chosen by its district and the federal government to receive extra funding, equipment, teachers, and training to "specialize" in a chosen field or two. All of the 16 Magnet Schools in ABCUSD have been awarded over $20 million federal monies to develop and sustain theme-based programs of excellence.
