Now renamed the "Loudoun School for the Gifted" (LSG) this is an outstanding school for a child who is self-motivated and curious. Teachers work with each child to make sure that they are being adequately challenged and engaged. Even more important, students are taught to think and analyze the information provided, which is done in a variety of ways from biographies to field trips. Classes are very small and there is now a middle school as well. We have been to other "gifted schools" in the area and nothing compares.

Best Kept Secret in Loudoun County! If you have a child who is not thriving in the public school and want more of a challenge this is perfect. My son always did well in Loudoun County but lost his love of learning after being "taught to the tests" for so long. He started to not want to go to school and complained of the lack of hands on learning. I decided to send him to Ideal and he could not be happier....worth every penny spent. The staff is engaging and the kids are excited to be there. The class size is small (5-6 kids per class) You could not get more attention for your child unless you decided to homeschool! The Principal and Vice Principal are involved with your kids everday and they know your child personally. The students are bright, creative, and telented.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
