Support IDS

Ways to Give

At The Independent Day School, students learn to be FEARLESS. Eighth graders lead All-School Meetings and Kindergartners perform for the first time in a class play. The tallest and the smallest band together, stretching to do their best at Field Day. They hone their skills as budding musicians and artists. They push themselves to be better students and kinder friends. IDS children do things that feel hard and they are better for it.
We encourage our entire community to be FEARLESS in their generosity and giving.
