WHAT IS WOW?


At IDEAL School, everything we do is based on brain research. From the structure of daily tasks to the organization of the rooms, every aspect is influenced by cognitive theory. Teachers at every level know how the mind learns and use this information to help students meet their potential.

I was a member of IDEAL’s first graduating class. I first walked down the yellow brick road at five years old, in 1999. Twenty years later, my memories of IDEAL are still colored with a sense of magic and a feeling of incredible giftedness to have grown up there, with classmates and teachers who became a second family.

IDEAL taught me to be confident in myself and not to be afraid of what people think of me and people skills that help me to build strong connections with teachers and classmates. I think my time at IDEAL was very beneficial towards my future and I don’t think I would be where I am today without it.

They all have brought me to think about one thing, they have all helped my to think about the wonderful person Dr. and Mrs. Soderman helped my become.
