At IDEA, we're more than educators.
We’re believers and fighters committed to giving children – no matter their socioeconomic background, ethnicity, or neighborhood they reside in – the tools needed to reach their full potential.
Together, we spend our day ensuring that no matter what, our students are in an environment where they will develop good character, be challenged academically, and succeed on their road to and through college.
“In 2013 I joined IDEA as an Academy Co-Teacher. Thanks to the incredible professional development and encouragement from my team, I progressed in the classroom and became a teacher, and am now an Assistant Principal.”
