Why Ideal Mini?
Our school prides itself in the positive relationships we build among the members of our learning community. We encourage you to learn more about our unique program and the opportunities we offer to our students and families.
Ideal offers a unique and supportive high school experience that allows for students to really get to know their teachers and classmates. I've made lifelong friends and been able to grow immensely as both an avid learner and passionate activist in my community.
I love ideal because of the great connections you make along the way. Ideal is a great place to meet friends that can last a life time.
Ideal is not just a community, it's a family.
Ideal Mini has a great community feel whilst also challenging the students to be the best that they can be academically. The individual is valued and accepted, but at the same time teamwork and leadership skills are encouraged and fostered. A place for students to grow and learn how to face the world as confident young adults.
As a parent, I was thrilled that my child wanted to attend and was accepted to Ideal. In a small group learning environment, with teachers finding innovative ways for students to learn, be curious, and work together, my child is challenged academically. Equally important, the teachers strive to create a school environment that is based on community, cooperation, empathy, and respect. I am hopeful that when my child graduates from Ideal, my child will be prepared both academically for further schooling and socially to navigate this world as a young adult.
The true meaning of community and leadership are exemplified at Ideal Mini. Each student is encouraged to be actively involved in shaping the culture at the school. The small class sizes allow for the teachers to not only understand the needs of each student but allows them to encourage collaboration among the students. Every effort is made to extend unique academically-enriching opportunities, such as the Science Fair and trips to Japan and Bamfield. As a parent, I have seen my child grow into someone who is confident, able to collaborate with others and willing to take initiative -skills that will prove to be an asset as my child learns to navigate the real world.
