Mission

The Institute of Positive Education (IPE) mission is to provide educational services for children, parents, teachers and members of the community, including training and seminars for adults, pre-school, after-school, and summer programs for the youth. Our commitment is to use technology, arts and educational models of excellence, and underscored study to inspire in our children a passion for learning.
