About Houston Houston is known for being one of the most diverse cities in America, yet children of color and children living in poverty continue to lack access to the highest quality schools.

We are the fourth largest city, with more than 51 independent public-school districts and the home base for two fantastic public charter school operators, YES Prep and KIPP Texas-Houston.

Houston’s reputation is based on economic opportunity and affordable living with a massive sprawl that exceeds the size of New Hampshire.

Despite the presence of great public charter schools and a strong district magnet schools’ system, the need for more great schools is ever present.

IDEA Greater Houston will help solve the challenge to offer more children a choice-filled life through a transformational public education.
