The Opportunity Gap
Every child can and will succeed if given the opportunity.
No student’s potential should be limited by the color of their skin, where they live, household income.Yet for 40 years this fundamental inequity has been allowed to continue.
IDEA Public Schools is committed to a vision of College For All Children.
Through our unique curriculum and our college support model comprising people, programs, and culture, we are closing the opportunity gap and increasing levels of achievement by preparing students from underserved communities for success in college and citizenship.
For the past ten years, since our students have started graduating from high school, 100% of our students have been accepted to college.
In the past six years, our average ACT score has increased from 17 to 21.5.
More than 2,600 of IDEA Rio Grande Valley’s Academy Students read more than one million words and passed comprehension tests during the academic year.
