SABIS® Educational Systems, Inc. was established in 1985 in Minnesota and owns the exclusive rights in North America, South America, and Europe to the SABIS® Edge Education Program, an educational system with roots in the 19th century.
Following its incorporation in 1985, SABIS® Educational Systems, Inc. established a range of schools starting in the private sector and expanding into the public sector. The first of these schools was The International School of Minnesota in Eden Prairie, Minnesota which set the bar for schools to come. The establishment of ISM, a private school, was followed by the founding of several charter schools in states with charter school laws.
The schools, managed by SABIS® Educational Systems, Inc., are part of the worldwide SABIS® School Network including schools in 15 countries with thousands of students in the 2011-2012 academic year.
