The Independent Day School
Three Transformative Journeys | One Extraordinary School

The IDS Advantage

  • Design
    IDS students grow into independent, original and collaborative thinkers who aren’t confined to examining things in conventional ways.
  • Fearless
    At IDS, we work to remove fear from the equation. Exploring interests and curiosities is encouraged. The result is preschool, elementary and middle school students who are fearless at school.
  • Social & Emotional
    Kind and curious. Helpful and hardworking. Our students root for one another and bring out the best selves in each other.
