How to Help

David Mitchell, architecture and CAD teacherWe welcome you to IDEA Public Charter School, a unique learning institution where every scholar performs!  Now into our 16th year of operations. we continue to train the next generation of strategic thinkers and decisive leaders. Your partnership with IDEA helps support individualized instruction and opportunities for our scholars to engage in hands-on community service activities.

IDEA’s programs include a Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), Microsoft Academy, and architecture and computer-aided design. These courses embody our school’s three-fold approach for scholars pursuing college, technology, trade, or military careers.

IDEA earned the designation of Reward School from the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education for the second consecutive year, recognition given to schools with the highest levels of student achievement and growth. Our success has come through effective use of smaller class sizes, individualized instruction for struggling students, and career and college or vocational guidance for all students.

We need your help to capitalize on our academic gains and sustained performance. We urge you to schedule a tour of the campus, sit in on a class or have lunch with our scholars, and promise you a memorable experience. We mean business!

Thank you for your support and interest!
