It is an awesome school for so many reasons! They all really care about their students and families. It is great in academics and very professional! The woman who started it has a heart and passion for children! She does all she can for them and their families!! It one of the best schools I have ever seen!!
I love this school because they treat each child as an individual recognizing abilities and challenges. Then they find the best way for the child to learn.
The learning technique is unique and offers a great approach to learning is fun for all kids. They recognize that all kids are different.
It is one of the most positive approaches to learning that I have ever experienced for the children.
IDEAL applies Harvard based education principles to the classroom using the 7 multiple intelligences on a daily basis. By educating the whole child it ensures that my children mature both academically and emotionally. The teacher to student ratio ensures the personal attention every child deserves. The preschool is the best in the country! The elementary and middle schools ensure children are critical thinkers, problem solvers and productive members in their community. As a parent, I couldn't ask or expect any more for my children's education.
This is hands down the best school out there. There is no other school that teaches the way they do with their Multi-Intelligence approach. Also the morals and ethics that are taught to the kids are amazing. My children love it...It is such a fun school where they learn so much!
IDEAL School is amazing. I love that they emphasize that emotional development is just as important as cognitive development.
IDEAL Preschool, Elementary, and Middle School is a top-notch school. The attention and love that the students are given from every member of the teaching team is priceless. The passion for learning and for children is evident from the moment one drives up to the school. Some schools teach virtues and doctrines, The IDEAL Team lives them and models them! The children are happy to be at school. There is a level of comfort and respect that one would never find anywhere else. The amount of time that is spent to ensure each child is reached, understood, and provided the opportunities to be successful is immeasurable. The thoughtful planning that is done to ensure that each event is an incredible memory for everyone involved far surpasses that of any school. The availability of the administration and teachers to both the parents and most importantly the students is unheard of in any school setting. Nothing in this world is perfect, yet the Team at IDEAL strives to achieve excellence in all that they do and never ceases to listen, learn and grow to improve every aspect of the learning environment for its students, parents and teachers. Being a part of the IDEAL School is giving your family the greatest gift a true understanding of learning and education.
you are truly part of a family and children are treated with kindness and respect.
The IDEAL School teaching staff has a passion for education that is unsurpassed creating students that enjoy learning. The methods applied ensure each student learns in a manner that best suits them and ensures maximum growth both educationally and personally.
Loving and caring teachers that really understand how to teach children.
IDEAL School is the perfect learning environment for any little learner. Every lesson has a song, game, or experiment so they reach every child!
This school is one of the most amazing places I, as a teacher and parent, have ever encountered. They follow the multiple intelligence theory of Howard Gardner and really put the ideas in practice as an educational tool. My son loves the school as well. My major concerns are that the school has become overly focused on fundraising, forgetting that the big ideal extended family is part of what made the school so special.
It gives me great pleasure to rate this school with 5 stars. As a parent, you can only hope your child will come home and say, ' I love school'. The love of learning will make every child an exeptional adult.
My son has been attending Ideal since he was 3. Ideal, without a doubt, is 100% committed to teaching children in a positive, loving environment. He is welcomed every day with enthusiasm, and he is pushed to excel and achieve goals they know he can attain. I would NEVER put my child anywhere else. If you want an excelerated learning progam that creates an environment where children love learning and problem solving, then this is where your child should be. You can take a tour with Wendy Soderman. She is amazing and she is certainly a person you will never forget.
This school is what learning is all about. My daughter was in the 3s last year and the all day PREK this year. Ideal is engaging, fun, high energy and creative. The childern are learning so much and they are being taught to be thinkers and problem solvers. They are taught to be respectful and caring people too. There is no other school we would send our daughter too. We are planning on Kindergarten for next year. This is definitely the place she belongs!
This is the 2nd year that my daughter has been at Ideal. SHe is scurrently in the pre-K 4 program. We love this school and hope to continue here. I love the philosolphy and the amount of learning these kids are doing!!! Having a sister-in-law that teaches gifted in another state, whenever she sees my child, she is amazed by how bright she is and the understanding of everything she has learned and is learning! I highly recommend this school! The energy that this school gives is nothing but positive and rewarding!!!! No other school in this area can compare!!!!!
I graduated from Ideal and dream school and not ony did I surpass the state standard, but I also was taught how to learn using Dr Gardners Multiple Intelligence Theory. The most amazing school. Five Stars all the way.
