Description
Position at IDEA Public Schools

At IDEA Public Schools, we believe in college for all and we are committed to ensuring that all of our students graduate from college in four years. IDEA Public Schools has grown from a single, small school to the fastest-growing network of tuition-free Pre-K-12 public charter schools in the United States, sending 100% of our students to college every year. Fifty-eight percent of our students graduate from college in 6 years - that's 8 times the national rate for students in our communities!

IDEA was founded in 2000 as a single school with 150 students in the Rio Grande Valley. When interest exceeded building capacity to meet the demands, IDEA's co-founders committed to serving more students in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and beyond. We now serve nearly 65,000 students across Texas and Louisiana. By 2022, IDEA will serve 100,000 students in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and Ohio.
