August 27, 2013
My son was a kindergarten student at IDEA Allen during its first year. Though the adminstration was preoccupied at times with the non-sense going on with the AISD board, that didn't affect the school's execution of its charter. My son, along with all the other students, were given an assessment in the beginning of the school year, then divided in groups and taught a specific curriculum based on their knowledge level. This meant that kids at both higher and lower levels did not fall behind and did not recieve the same "cookie cutter" education. My son started the year below grade level in all subjects and ended the school year above. The curriculum also focused on personal development and taught children about humanities and core values like respect and friendship. I could go on and on giving reasons why I chose IDEA over both private and public schools, but I have to finish dinner. I'll conclude by saying that I recommend IDEA to all my friends and family and though I no longer live in Austin, I still drive my son to IDEA every morning. P.S. the bus for a local school picks up right in front of my house
