IDEALS Reflections Program

As a Round Square school, each student lives the Round Square IDEALS  (Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service) differently and are engaged in the pillars in a variety of ways. 

This year we are piloting the IDEALS Reflections program - where students who are engaged in a one or more of the pillars can reflect on their experiences. 

Students who complete the reflections will receive a pin representing that particular pillar. If you complete reflections for all six pillars during your Middle School career or your Senior School career, you will be awarded the Round Square pin. This Round Square pin recognizes those students who push themselves in the six themes of character education and experiential learning.  

Students will reflect on the pillar throughout the year. At the end of the year, students will submit their reflection in a video or slideshow presentation form. More information to come about submitting your reflection. The final day we will be receiving reflections for this year is Friday, May 21, 2021.  

Here is a video that introduces the IDEALS* Reflections program.
