Welcome to IDEA El Paso

Opening in 2018

Attend an Information Session


IDEA Public Schools is honored and humbled to be given the opportunity to serve children and families in El Paso. For the past 17 years, we have been relentlessly focused on one thing – providing an educational experience that helps students realize their college dreams and aspirations.  For 11 consecutive years, every one of our high school graduates has been accepted into college. As we prepare to work in El Paso, we reflect upon our humble beginnings across the US-Mexico border in Donna, Texas, and know that for far too many of students, much like those who we have educated since 2001, the dream of a college diploma remains an illusion. We have changed this for the children in the Rio Grande Valley and can change this for the children of El Paso.

We know that will not be easy. We know that we will face hardships and challenges along the way. But, we promise to give 100% every day for our students and to remain committed to their success not just through high school, but also through college graduation.



In 2018, IDEA El Paso will be home to 4 IDEA schools.



In 2018, we will we have a total of 1,000 students between our academy and college prep campuses.



100% of our kids will be college bound.
