Welcome to Corbett Preparatory School of IDS where learning is exciting, filled with enthusiasm, and focused on excellence. Visitors are captivated by what they see, feel, and hear as teachers do more than talk the talk…they walk the walk. They live the research on teaching and best practices each and every day.

The ultimate goal is to continuously combine:

  1. Joy with challenge,
  2. Stimulating and inspiring lessons with productivity and results,
  3. A nurturing environment with high expectations and high standards, and
  4. A strong work ethic with ethical conduct that emphasizes dignity and respect for all.

We embrace this challenge each and everyday with determination, creativity, passion, purpose, and a mindset that is filled with possibility!

On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and students, we thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to tour both our campus and this website. Both are full of information that is valuable to educators, parents, and interested citizens locally, nationally, and globally.
