Our students are independent minded with an interest in creativity, design, and self-expression in the arts. Students are offered the opportunity to explore careers and skills for the Creative Economy while preparing for college and post-graduation plans. Student interests are explored within the curriculum to help each student develop self-discipline while expanding creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Each student uses his or her unique multiple intelligences to present work to peers or to the community. A period of self-reflection follows each project.
Approximately 140 students from a broad and diverse background attend IDEAS Academy. We strive to have a demographic that is similar to other SASD high schools.
