Ida Jew Academy will provide an exceptional education through the integration of curriculum: Language Arts (ELA/SLA), Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, and Physical Education.


Through collaboration among students, staff, and families, we will build upon our students’ creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills to produce well rounded life long learners who are socially responsible and prepared for college, career, and their future in their ever changing century.
