Social Justice

There is no peace without justice posterThe IDEAL School of Manhattan supports each student’s positive identity and character development by directly addressing the impact of stereotyping, bias, and discriminatory behavior, encouraging cooperative learning, and teaching conflict resolution. Our anti-bias and multicultural values are woven into the fabric of our curriculum and community.

Students compare multiple perspectives in all of their classes as they develop empathy, voice, and self-advocacy skills. An inclusive education provides students with an excellent academic foundation and empowers them to succeed in a truly diverse society with self-confidence, acceptance, and compassion.
