    "I toured several schools and as soon as I stepped into IDS, I knew I had found the right place. I have never entered a classroom at IDS and seen kids bored and not engaged. There is a lot of learning by doing and the kids get so excited about school. It is a nice mix of traditional education (they learn math facts, spelling, grammar & cursive) and newer educational philosophies that let kids take a more active role in their education. The teachers are always available and no parental concern is too small. I feel like they know each of my kids as well as I do. The work is also individually tailored to each student. I have twins that are in the same class and they often come home with completely different work. If one of them excels in an area the teacher will give them advanced work and if they need help in something, they get more work in that area until they master it."

    "Don't go to this school--the people are toxic and they just do things to please the paying customers not for the sake of learning. They let students and teachers get away with all sorts of things just because they kiss the Head of schools butt."

    "After several years in public school we realized we needed something different. Our kids were receiving average schooling and the education was not tailored to their needs. This all changed once we found IDS. Our kids both have thrived! They have very different learning profiles and the teachers were able teach to them in a way that fit their needs. In addition to great academics, IDS focuses on building self confidence and working successfully in a community. The new Head of School is smart and focused and has a great overall plan for size and direction of the school. Wish we would have transferred our kids sooner!"

    "I m not sure what the previous review is referencing, as the IDS enrollment has been growing steadily, most of the classes are at capacity and the secondary school placement list is dominated by the best schools in New England. Faculty retention is amazing, with the vast majority of teachers having been at IDS for well over ten years. I think the newest teacher that they have has been at the school for 5 years. As a parent of a 2017 grad, I cab not say enough about IDS in terms of preparing my son to be both a scholar and a fine young man. There is a reason why IDS has been one of Connecticut s best schools for over 50 years."

    "Our kids' early experiences at IDS--several years ago--were wonderful. But in the last few years the school has gone downhill quickly. When the former head of school departed, IDS had over 175 students. Now, with the present head, I doubt it has even 150 kids. Many of the teachers quit as well. We were glad our kids graduated before the school got any worse. Now it seems to accept anyone, just to make ends meet."
