IDEA Celebrates Ribbon Cutting for IDEA Owassa Campus in Pharr

On Monday September 10, IDEA Public Schools gathered with community leaders, board members, IDEA students, and others to celebrate the official ribbon cutting of one of our newest campuses, IDEA Owassa.

Located at 1000 W Owassa Road in Pharr, Texas, IDEA Owassa opened on August 13 for the 2018-2019 school year, welcoming approximately 762 students in grades Pre-K through 2nd and 6th.

Faculty and staff spent months preparing for the school’s official opening and are proud to offer area students the best education possible coupled with increased educational opportunities.

“This is our second school in Pharr, Texas, and we are so happy to be able to continue to serve our community," said Cyndi De La Fuente, IDEA Owassa Academy Principal.

The event included a welcome from IDEA’s Upper Valley Executive Director Lisa Garza, and remarks from De La Fuente, College Prep Principal Stevie Luera, and Pharr Mayor Dr. Ambrosio Hernandez.

With 79 schools currently serving nearly 45,000 students in five regions, IDEA is committed to ensuring that all students are prepared to succeed on the road to and through college and has achieved a 100% college acceptance rate twelve years in a row.

Welcome to the family, IDEA Owassa! Go Broncs!
