Mission and Vision


We provide a child-centered education that nurtures creativity, collaboration, curiosity, compassion, and critical thinking through work that is meaningful to students and promotes lifelong learning.


All children are intrinsically motivated learners and constructors of knowledge. All children can develop a deep sense of empathy and compassion for others. The IDEA School promotes these qualities and helps our students build upon them, for the benefit of themselves, their families, our community, and the world.

The IDEA School provides a Reggio Emilia inspired, inquiry-based educational experience for children that is engaging and collaborative. We nurture students’ ability to take on challenging problems and do meaningful work and help them become compassionate, intelligent learners.
