  • Dallas ISD's Unique IDEA



    People go to work every day to earn a living, but many of us also work to be a part of something bigger, better, newer, or more helpful than what existed before. At IDEA, students are awakened to the history, politics, economies, values and beliefs of different cultures for deep insight into what makes people who they are.

     The application window is now open for students interested in joining our Innovation Design Entrepreneurship Academy family. Click here to apply!
