Welcome to IDEA Events to be Held in February and March

Attention all new-to-IDEA families!  You are invited to Welcome to IDEA, a celebratory and informative event for those just accepted to IDEA Public Schools.  

At this welcome event, we will celebrate your acceptance to IDEA and orient you to the IDEA Team & Family. Welcome to IDEA is a time for students and families to get to know principals, teachers and staff, as well as learn the fundamentals of IDEA’s culture of high expectations and achievement, program model, and parent partnership.

We can’t wait to see you at Welcome to IDEA in the coming weeks as your family begins its journey with IDEA on the road to and through college.
