Like all non-profit independent schools, The IDEAL School relies on the generosity of families, friends, and foundations to meet expenses not covered by tuition

A gift to The IDEAL School supports the belief that every child deserves access to a top-notch, independent school education.

By giving to IDEAL, you help to ensure that our students will receive an individualized, differentiated education that will allow them to reach their full potential. You will help bring meaningful technology into our classrooms, equipping students with skills they need to be successful in the 21st Century.

And you will preserve the socioeconomic diversity of our community, helping to create a school that is truly reflective of the world in which we live.
