Great school except for a few crappy teachers.
My daughter has finally found her wings at IDP!
This is the one school that really believed in me and helped me find my way. It took me a longer to graduate then I hoped but the staff never gave up on me.
I can only say that this school cares more than any other I have ever seen in this city. My son was pushed through 3 different schools before we found Innovation. The school gave him a second chance and helped him to graduate and for that I am so grateful to the teachers and counselors and administrators that worked so hard to help my son get to college. Thank you Innovation!
