Green team outdoors with gardening equipment

This year, we increased our recycling and composting percentage, installed a nature trail on the north edge of the campus with painted plant identification stones, put in this year's vegetable garden, and removed invasive Scotch broom and Himalayan blackberries from local trails and along roads by the school.

Under the leadership of Dr. Green (a.k.a. Kurt Wieland), the IMS Green Team continues to be recognized for its conservation efforts.

Meet Principal Mark Jergens-Zmuda

Hello, Panther families! I’m thrilled to be the principal of such an amazing school community. I am excited about this job because it gives me the opportunity to help enrich the lives of our students, and also for witnessing and fostering those “lightbulb” moments when a concept clicks for a student and they really understand it. A few fun facts about me: I love 80s music, swimming and softball. If I could eat just one type of food for the rest of my life, it would probably be Reese’s peanut butter cups. I went to high school and participated in band with Pharrell Williams in Virginia, and was later a drum major at Virginia Tech and used to do backflips across the field at college football games.
