IDEA is a growing school that fosters new innovators. Idea focuses heavily on engineering and design , and we learn subjects that are recognized in industry fields. CAD programs, two shop spaces, and lots of business partners to collab with.
However, the school is still just beginning ( Opened 2016). Our demographic is mostly white males. But the school is reaching to change that over the years. Since we are so small, we have a deep sense of community among one another, including the teachers, who are genuine and kind. They will help you in any way they can and they have varied backgrounds as well.

Going to IDEA is a different kind of experience. It's full of white people, but it has some good teachers. Specifically science/math department. It's a rundown building but students make it work. Good for engineers. It's a unique school.
IDEA is for the most part, a very good school. The teachers are always trying to help the student achieve their best work, however some students do not take advantage of the opportunity and therefore fall behind. The discipline is not as strict, and that makes IDEA a bit more crazy than other high schools, but since our school size is under 500 it is not too bad.
