2) A Technology Device For Every Student. We provide personal technology devices to all IDEA scholars. Scholars can expect the following depending on their grade level: Chromebook Tablet, Chromebook Laptop, or Dell Laptop. 

3) We Are Open To All Students. We are a tuition-free public school option in neighborhoods across the Valley. We accept applications from all students, regardless of where they live, their academic standing, their income, and ability level.

4) Highly Trained & Experienced Teachers. When COVID-19 forced distance learning across the country last spring, IDEA teachers rose to the occasion and maintained contact with nearly 100% of their students. We’re prepared to make even stronger virtual connections this year.
