We looked at all of the gifted schools in the area, and even some outside of the state, but we stopped looking when we found Ideaventions. We found a nurturing, kind school that doesn't limit our children's curiosity and love for learning. On the contrary--they encourage it. Don't let the name "Math & Science" lead you to believe that's all they do. We've enjoyed their four theatre productions this year, and our children have thrived in the improv, creative writing, and photography classes. Thanks for all you do, Ideaventions!

Ideaventions Academy is the heart of learning. It is a place where at lunch students are still discussing lessons from the hands-on lesson they did in science class, where students in upper grades get students in lower grades excited about engineering projects in years to come, where STEM kids, humanities kids, theater kids, artists and student-athletes all find a home, and where teachers happily get out their notes from their own PhD programs when planning curriculum. It is also a place that prioritizes the mental health of students. I have enjoyed working at Ideaventions because of the collaborative and supportive environment. I have loved working at Ideaventions because of the passionate and kind administration, teachers, students, and families. We are curious lifelong learners. It is a special place, indeed.

Working at Ideaventions Academy has been a true pleasure. The professionalism of every teacher, combined with their genuine commitment to their students' success, sets this institution apart. It's more than just a school; it's a tight-knit family where students and staff alike look out for one another, forging lifelong friendships. It's an honor to be part of such a remarkable community where education and personal connections converge to create an exceptional environment.

If I could have created a school from scratch that was the best fit for my kids, I would have created Ideaventions: engineering, creative writing, and daily walks in the woods! I finally found a school in the area that could keep up with my kiddos, stretch them without breaking them, and let their passion for learning shine through. The other students are kind and equally motivated by their own love of learning. We've been here four years and will be here through graduation. It's been a pleasure watching the kids learn--and enjoy the process.
