  • great staff, great educators and great students.
    That is what Idea San Benito is all about.
    Bringing out the best in each student, My 7th. grader is succeeding in all his subjects. he has shown a great improvement in math and is already focused on what he wants to study and where when he finishes his education at Idea. I attribute his continued success to the character in each of his teachers and the support that the staff has given him and my family.
    At idea the parents and guardians are work together with the school to create good smart students that one day will achieve their goals.
