Rio Grande Valley, TX (May 5, 2020) – This week, for Teacher Appreciation Week, IDEA Public Schoolsrecognizes their teachers for their hard work and dedication as they transform the lives of our students.

At IDEA Pubic Schools, where nearly 90 percent of students qualify for free and reduced priced meals, educators are dedicated to ensuring that each student receives an excellent education. As students throughout the Valley moved to distance learning the past few months, IDEA Public School teachers went above and beyond to ensure their scholars stayed connected and engaged.

“My teachers found ways to challenge me and keep me focused on finding a balance with school, athletics, and my life. My campus community feels like a family,” says Aaron Lozano, IDEA Quest Class of 2020. “I am a first-generation college student and got into every college I applied to. I want to thank all of my teachers for that. It means a lot.”

For the 12th consecutive year, IDEA college preparatory schools in the Rio Grande Valley were ranked among the top-performing schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Fifteen eligible IDEA college preparatory schools were recently ranked among the top one percent of the most challenging high schools in the nation by the Jay Mathews Challenge Index High School Rankings. In the Challenge Index rankings, eleven IDEA schools ranked in the top 25 of all high schools nationwide.

In addition, IDEA schools ranked in the top 25% of charter schools nationwide, with eight schools ranked among the top 10 in Texas. IDEA schools ranked in the top 25 among Texas charter schools, and IDEA College Preparatory McAllen was ranked the top high school in both Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, and third in the entire nation. In addition, as we near graduation, IDEA’s class of 2020 will see 1,143 graduating seniors, including 857 first generation college students, begin their college journeys this fall at universities across the nation.

While all of IDEA continues to celebrate every new milestone, we know that none of this success would be possible without the passion, hard work, patience, dedication and love of our teachers.
