“Choosing to attend Ideal for high school was hands down one of the best decisions of my life. The nurturing environment at Ideal, created by both the qualified teachers and the wonderful classmates, gave me both the confidence to pursue my dreams and the understanding of what it means to be a socially responsible person. I was more than ready to handle my university courses, which is a testament to the academic excellence of this school. More importantly, the teachings of Ideal – friendship, diligence, equality, success, creativity, trust and responsibility – are the ones that truly accompany you throughout life. I have many sweet memories of this place!”

Graduating from Ideal in 2000, Ben Krakowsky was thrust into the “real world” where he persued his dream of getting into the film industry. In film school, he discovered a love for the props department and now works as a property master in film and television. It’s a job that gives him opportunities to experience and learn new things daily. Check out his credits on IMDB!
