Just enrolled my 9th grader this year. He loves going to school here. The faculty is outstanding and they really focus on building well rounded young adults, while inspiring gifted kids to challenge themselves without the "pressure cooker" environment you find at other top schools.
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.
