Integrated Design Electronics Academy (IDEA) Public Charter School Reviews

Integrated Design Electronics Academy is a school where the main focus is, discipline, order, respect, and fun. The teachers do their best to connect with the students and are emotionally invested in each child's success. However, the organization of the school is by far the worst I've dealt with. The facilities are awful, for example, there are urinals without sections to separate each urinal. There is a disconnect in the parent-teacher relationship at IDEA. One can ask for a weekly progress of your child's work ethics and behavior and still do not get it. Very often they call only when they don't want your child in school. I've attended this school for 4 years and I can honestly testify that this school has a lot of improving to do.

IDEA is a good charter school. I am a involved student and athlete. I participate in almost every event. The school could use more sources, but it's not a bad school. The teachers are caring and supportive. The most supportive person I've worked with in IDEA is Stg. Briscoe. She is the Dean of Academics and she supports me and makes sure I am keeping up with all my classes. At first, I didn't want to attend a small school like IDEA, but a small school with a little amount of students is great. Students that need extra can get help right away. There is no waiting line like they have at big public schools. There are many more supportive staff that love to see their students succeed. IDEA Public Charter School is a great school to send your child/children.
I had a great and perfect experience at Idea Public Charter school, what i mostly want to see change in Idea public Charter school is the increase in Cultural Diversity, people from many nations come together as one.
