"Thanks to IDEAL, I learned respect and how to be cordial at a young age. I understand the importance of the simple things, like making eye contact and shaking hands. The value of education in a supportive environment with inspirational teachers and staff taught me that anyone can learn and achieve with the right support."
"Something that I get asked a lot is, “How hard was it to transition from a private school to a big public high school?” My immediate reaction is to always laugh; but then I tell them how incredibly life-changing my time at IDEAL was and how they greatly prepared me for anything that the real world had to throw at me."
"What I gained at IDEAL were relationships that would last me a lifetime, as well as, virtues and leadership values that helped me excel in academics past my time at the school. I have the confidence and the interpersonal skills to succeed in any opportunities that present themselves in my future."
"It prepared me for the academic challenges that came with IB, especially since much of the work required analytical and critical thinking skills that IDEAL Middle provided. I learned how I learn and I have been able to tailor my education to me. IDEAL truly prepared me for my future."
"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."
