I have had an amazing experience at Idlewild Elementary. Both my children are in the Magnet program and have had a good experience thus far. The school demonstrates rigor when it comes to academics and it has challenged both my children to grow as individuals. The staff and teachers are excellent and are not afraid to do what is best for each student. It was a true success to watch Idlewild receive the Dr. Ronald P. Simpson Distinguished Merit Award, the highest recognition given by Magnet Schools of America (MSA), this year and be named the nation's best magnet school. What I enjoyed the most about my journey at Idlewild is, its not just a school, its a family!
