Diversity

Magical Hands ArtworkAt IDEAL, no one leaves their identity at the door. IDEAL’s curriculum and programs are multicultural by design and intentionally structured to develop an anti-bias perspective. IDEAL affirms each student’s differences and fosters positive identity by directly addressing the impact of stereotyping, bias, and discriminatory behavior, encouraging cooperative learning, and teaching conflict resolution. This type of inclusive, multicultural, social justice education empowers students to succeed in a truly diverse society with self-confidence, acceptance, and compassion—values that are increasingly important in our global society.
