IDEA Public Schools prepares students from underserved communities for success in college and citizenship.
IDEA Public Schools believes that each and every child can go to college. Since 2001, IDEA Public Schools has grown from a small school with 150 students to the fastest-growing network of tuition-free, Pre-K-12 public charter schools in the United States.
Healthy Kids Here Initiative
In 2014, IDEA created the Healthy Kids Here initiative to help combat child obesity in the regions we serve. The goal? Become the healthiest school district in America, by providing a healthy and active lifestyle for our students, increasing student access to healthy and nutritious foods, and educating our IDEA Team and Family on health, wellness and nutrition.
We recognize that the roots of academic success for our students run far deeper than classroom learning alone. As part of our mission, IDEA hosts a 5K Run/Walk and Healthy Living Expo in each of our regions in an effort to engage our students and families in an fun, educational opportunity to be active. Our hope is that families and schools will train for the 5Ks together and develop a habit of being active together.
