Benefits of Independent Schools
The IDEAL School is a non-profit independent school. Independent schools offer specialized academic programs that incorporate small classes, individual attention, and highly qualified teachers. Because they have the flexibility to shape their own mission and philosophy, independent schools can design curriculum to match those guiding principles. For years, independent schools’ focus on leadership development, educating the whole child, and forward-thinking teaching techniques have produced students that are life-long learners, leaders in their communities, and global citizens.
