It’s that time of year again.  In just a few weeks, IDEA students will step foot on campus for their first day of school as we kick of the 2017-18 school year at IDEA!  Returning students, we hope you are excited to continue along the road to and through college, and for our new students, welcome to our Team & Family!  We are so glad you’re here.

This year, IDEA Public Schools will educate nearly 36,000 Pre-K through 12th grade students across 61 schools in the Rio Grande Valley, Austin, and San Antonio.
