In every instance, IDMANN Academy develops a curriculum - and delivers curricular outcomes - that is intended to meet the unique needs of the student, and the aspirations of the family at large. These tutorial outcomes are delivered by way of direct interaction between the students and the instructor in very small focused groups. The IDMANN instructor is a well trained and disciplined educator.
