The founders of Future, Amanda Cox and Brad Petersen, say they want to prepare their students for jobs that do not even exist yet.
“Our mission is to develop engineers of the future and of our community,” said Brad Petersen, Founder of Future Public School. “High growth areas in our economy are in computer science and STEM. Right now, there are over 1100 computer science jobs in Idaho that are unable to be filled.”
Future will be the only school in the area that is 100-percent STEM focused. The curriculum will be centered around science, technology, engineering, and math.
While it is a school that is focused on the future, its founders say that no student will be left behind.
