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.
We just finished the 3 yr old program and my daughter is now in the all day 4 yr old program. We still love the school and the enthusiasm they have for learning and for our children. My daughter entered on her first day to hugs, music, dancing and each teacher greeted her and told her how happy they were she was there. I left completely happy she was there too.
Another overpriced school that gives people a false sense of greatness. If you really want a quality education, you should homeschool. Otherwise save your money.
Poor communication with parents. Administration focus is on recruiting rather than on the existing students. Great sales pitch but little substance.
Ideal Elementary is no longer the ideal school it was only two years ago. There has been an ongoing problem with teacher retention and lack of meaningful input by the owner. It no longer appears that the children are the priority.
I went on the tour and was blown away -I knew this was where we needed to be. Everyone at this school has such passion and love for our children and their education. They don't teach to teach, they teach to understand. My husband hadn't been until orientation and he said he knew the school was great because I told him it was -but after seeing it first hand, he wants our daughter there all the way through middle school. If your kids are bored and uninspired by their current school-this is definitely the place to be!
This school has the most wonderful positive learning environment. It is a blessing to be able to send my daughter here. There is No competition or negativity. If you are a negative person look for another 'high rated school'. My Child enjoys learning, enjoys going to school and is a very well balanced child. What she has learned here goes way beyond what a text book can teach. She is in 2nd. grade but reads and comprehends on a 4th grade level. I love that she is able to learn at her level and is not held back from her full potential. My child has never felt pressure here. She now views school as a positive. Much different from when she attended Public school. Learn only to pass the FCAT, very sad. Now has time to play outside after school. She is not tied down for hrs doing homework.
I had my child there for almost 4 months, We had to leave. The competition from other parents is rediculious. Everyone always has someone better than you. I think that the owner who has survived with someonethat is different should realize that they are chldren and not money sighs. We now attend another high rated school, that my 4 year old feels no pressure
I have atended IDEAL since 1 was three I am now 12 and I still have such a great apreciation for my school. I would definitly recomend this school to anyone looking for an extraordinary school.
when I went on a tour of the school I left driving home for 30 min. saying Amazing,Amazing,Amazing over and over out loud. My daughter attended for 2 trial days and didn't want to go back to public school. She at 7 could see the difference! We are now unrolled there! We could not be happier! They welcome parents to be involved. The communication is UNBELIEVABLE I know so much of what she does while she is there. ALL of her work comes home w/ comments. As a Parent I know where she is at in her learning process daily! What she has learned at Ideal in 2 weeks would of taken months at public school. I know we just left public school in 3rd quarter. I had enough and knew there had to be something better for her. We found it at Ideal!! Words can not express how happy we are.
The most amazing school I've ever seen, my son started there in pre.K-3 now he is in pre.K-4. He is so far ahead of his peers from other schools that it almost seems unreal. My daughter who will be turning three will most definitely be attending there also. Cannot recommend this school enough. Go and see and you will know what I am talking about.
