Since 2000, IDEA Public Schools has grown from a small school with 150 students to a network of tuition-free, Pre-K-12 public charter schools in the United States. Currently, the network serves over 80,000 college-bound students in 143 schools across Texas and its affiliates. IDEA has been recognized as a “Great Place to Work” and received national rankings on The Washington Post and U.S. News & World Report’s Top High Schools lists.

IDEA is a network of public charter schools open to all students in grades Pre-K - 12. The district is held to the same academic standards as traditional public schools and prioritizes the development of the whole child, including character, emotional and physical health, and wellness. In the last 16 years, IDEA has sent 99.4% of its graduates to college and remains on track to uphold that legacy.
