Philosophy and Mission

Our Vision: To accelerate learning by creating a brain-friendly learning environment that is joyful and challenging, stimulating and productive, nurturing with high standards and high expectations, encouraging a strong work ethic and ethical conduct with dignity and respect for all.


Corbett Preparatory School of IDS was founded on and remains devoted to the ideal that a happy child — one who is given respect as a unique human being and allowed to fulfill his/her needs to play, to investigate, and to be him/herself — is more open to learning than a child who is unhappy, tense, and fearful. We consider it our responsibility to foster each child’s capacity for learning, to help him/her grow morally, spiritually, and emotionally as well as physically and intellectually.

Recognizing the many differences in learning rates and styles, we believe in individualizing each child’s school experience to whatever extent is possible for the fullest development of his/her potential. It is our belief that school should be interesting and even exciting, that each child’s work and behavior should be evaluated in terms of his/her own inherent capacity rather than through comparison with others, and that cooperation is more valuable than competition. Our goal is to provide a relaxed, but stimulating atmosphere where each child feels acceptance and encouragement in the achievement of success through the exercise of responsible choice.

We Do This by Creating:

A place where all students excel in both learning and their love of learning.

A place where all students experience learning in a nurturing/caring, child-centered and highly academic environment.

A place where academic success is measured for all students through everyday classroom tasks and tests, authentic learning experiences, national test scores.

A place where social and emotional success is measured for all students through successful interactions with peers, self-concept and high self-esteem, respect for authority, active participation in school learning, enthusiastic participation in school activities and events, respect for every individual’s safety, emotionally and physically.

A place where all learning is designed to combine the societal needs for achieving academic excellence, mastering test-taking skills, making the connection between school, work, and real life.
