Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Fountain International Magnet School!

    Lisa Horton My name is Lisa Horton and I am the principal of Fountain International Magnet School. It is my honor and privilege to serve the families of this community. The school opened in 2008 as an International Baccalaureate World School and we proudly offer the Primary Years Program, also known as PYP. By choosing to implement this program, our school focuses on students' academic success, social and emotional well-being, international-mindedness, and strong personal values. Every student is encouraged to take responsibility for their learning. The program incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six trans-disciplinary themes and the links between them.

    We educate every student to be principled and lifelong learners through a rigorous, inquiry-based curriculum integrating National and International standards. We challenge our students to make reflective and meaningful contributions to our diverse global society.

    Fountain International is a six-year John Irwin Award winner. This award is given to schools that demonstrate excellent academic achievement.

    Students at Fountain International are accepted through a lottery process that creates opportunities for all students. One of the unique requirements of Fountain International is that families are required to volunteer 18 hours every school year. This requirement has created an environment where parents are not only welcome in the school but are also contributing members of our school community and culture.

    Thank you for visiting our school website. Here at Fountain, our students R.O.A.R. They are respectful, open-minded, achievers, and responsible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school at 719-549-7535 for more information.
