Tours and Open Houses

2020-21 Open Houses

We encourage all families to virtually attend one of our Open Houses. IDEAL’s Open Houses highlight the Lower School (Grades K-5) and Upper School (Grades 6-12) programs. Meet our students, faculty, and parents, tour our classrooms, and learn about the IDEAL Difference.

Open Houses for the 2020-21 school year are being scheduled. RSVP today and we will follow up via email with instructions on how to attend our Open Houses.
