What makes us unique
IDEA is located in a state-of-the-art educational facility in the historic Deanwood community. In addition to rigorous core academics, IDEA offers the Academy of Construction and Design to teach skilled trades, early childhood education classes, and US Army Junior ROTC.
Ideal candidate fit
Students and teachers can get lost in large high schools. Our small school size, wrap-around service model and low teacher to student ratio are integral to building the individual relationships students need to pursue their dreams.
Our teachers work together to ensure that students see meaningful connections across the curriculum. Leaders provide data-driven coaching to ensure that all teachers are growing alongside their students.
