"The IMSA curriculum focuses on critical and creative problem-solving skills and has four primary goals:
... to actualize intellectual potential and to develop academic achievement, creativity and responsibility in all students;
... to approach the study of mathematics and science with rigor by exploring the breadth and depth of content using cutting- edge technologies;
... to foster interdisciplinary approaches to thinking and learning by integrating the studies of mathematics, science, social science, art and humanities;
... to practice apprentice investigation appropriate to each discipline."*
