IDEA Allan: New name. Same Excellence.



IDEA Allan, in Austin, Texas, will be renamed IDEA Montopolis, effective July 1, 2018.

Since its founding in 2012, IDEA Allan has created an incredible track record of leading every scholar on a path towards college and success. The school’s legacy and rich history is widespread in the communities in which it serves.

After it was recently brought to the attention of campus and senior leadership that the Allan campus was named after a Confederate Army officer, it was agreed upon that a name change was warranted.

The new school name—IDEA Montopolis— embodies the spirit, diversity and history of the school’s surrounding communities and the values of IDEA Public Schools. The school, whose bulldog mascot will remain, is excited to honor the Montopolis community and move forward with a name that uniquely belongs to the students and families being served.
