Financial Aid:
At IPS, we pride ourselves in being a truly diverse school community. This includes economic diversity. Each year, a percentage of our tuition goes towards supporting families that aren’t able to pay the full tuition. We are seeing more applicant families in need of financial aid. By contributing towards financial aid, you will increase our financial aid budget, allowing us to help more families attend IPS.

Technology Enhancements:
The school website is the “face of IPS” and is pivotal for our admissions and advertising. As such, we need to maintain our website and keep it up to date. The security of the school is of the utmost importance and this fund will help cover the cost to update our security systems. A donation to this fund will allow the school to stay technologically current.

Professional Development:
At IPS we support the continued education of our faculty members. We support this by reimbursing faculty for up to 9 credits annually at a CUNY school towards a Master’s degree in education. The school also has regular professional development for the faculty regarding current trends in education and curriculum. Our current professional development is focusing on the school’s DEI mission and nurturing anti-bias education. Your contribution to this fund will help make these opportunities available to our faculty.

Long Term Stability:
This fund was established to replenish the money used from our reserve fund investments. This reserve is what allowed us to sustain the deficits due to operating during COVID.
