Interior Distance Education of AK (Idea) School Reviews

It is a great program that allows you to explore learning with your children with as little or as much guidance as you want.  The staff are very friendly and the curriculum fair they host every year is a can't miss event.

I think that IDEA is a great home school program and has a lot of great activities for kids in the Fairbanks area.  The Contact teacher are excellent and are always there when  you need a hand.  Overall I am very pleased with  IDEA as my first year with them.

IDEA is an excellent homeschool program.  Although it is a public school program, you can sellect your own curriculum.  It receives funding that would normally be given to a public school, if your child was attending there.  A portion of this funding is allotted to the parent/teacher of the child, as much as $2000 for a high school student.  Religious curriculum is accepted for school credit, but this money that is allotted for the child in the IDEA program can only be spent on secular curriculum.  The program covers from K-12.
