What do you do when you have a passion for teaching? What do you do when you can’t find a creative and nurturing school environment? What happens when you want the best for your children and others? Well, these were the challenges facing Gina Pangalangan in 2002.
“Ah Ha” Gina decided to put her passion, talents and learnings into PLAY. As a result, she set out on an adventure to start a preschool with 40 children in a church with 2 classrooms.
The preschool which focused on working with students’ unique interests and strengths became so popular, Gina built the MIM building. With this philosophy, the first preschool class didn’t want to leave & more students wanted to join so the school expanded to 8 th grade and another building was purchased & renovated in 2006
Then, in 2013, the school kept growing and once again needed more space. This time, Gina called upon the community of supporters at the “I Dream Night” to help build Impact Point, arts & fitness facility. Many families made significant contributions, some of whom you may not know as they have paid it forward with their generosity to make IP a reality: Cismesia, Bricking, Cullen, Depp, Duncan, Everding, Frommling, Khan, Knopf, Matson, Melvin, Pangalangan, Patrick, Scartz, Stanley, Taggart, Thomson and Valentine.
With over a 7 acre campus and 4 learning buildings, this Ah Ha moment has been a change trajectory for countless students over the past 15 years. It grew from a preschool of 40 to a Pre-High School of 250.
Once again, the school is at capacity and so the time has come in 2018 to complete the final path to a Remarkable future with campus improvements. A green space for middle and high school brain breaks…..parking lot enhancements to increase student safety and improve traffic flow…. complete last phase of renovations to North so that more students can experience a reimagined learning experience
