HOW WE TEACH

IDEAL School's brain-based and Multiple Intelligence philosophies and practices deliver effective and innovative strategies beyond the basic curriculum for the gifted learner. Our curriculum is designed to challenge and empower students to produce quality work and to become productive citizens, while protecting and nurturing their unique characteristics.
IDEAL School provides a supportive and stimulating environment where students use sophisticated forms of thinking that include generalizing, reasoning, predicting, classifying, comparing and contrast in order to seek evidence to support a hypothesis or idea. It is our goal at IDEAL School to teach for understanding (not just test scores). The professional teaching team will achieve this goal by:

AUTHENTIC LEARNING

From Preschool through graduation, each child is guided to identify and understand his/her personal learning style and its strengths. Regular written assignments and tests are reinforced by Projects, Exhibitions and Presentations, which give teachers and parents a more comprehensive picture of what a child actually understands, and provides a rich academic experience that includes – and extends beyond – the completion of a test or recalling facts from memory.
The IDEAL School is the perfect school for the “gifted” learner. Students are grouped by ability to optimize their learning experience. During core subjects students may even move up a grade level based on their academic performance. We recognize some students have mastered grade-level benchmarks and need to be provided with other opportunities to reach their cognitive potential.
