“I've been here for two years, and it's been really fun watching the school evolve. I think this has been a great opportunity to turn this building back into a school.”

- Matt, Alturas Student, 7th Grade

Alturas International Academy promotes academic distinction, while empowering students to be principled and intellectual leaders as they explore, create, investigate, and analyze in a safe, engaged, collaborative environment that inspires them to make a genuine difference in their local and global community. Chartered only two years ago, Alturas has grown rapidly. With ‘20 in 10’ support and working closely with Building Hope, Alturas renovated and now occupies the historic O.E. Bell Building, a former district school building located in the heart of downtown Idaho Falls. This building allows Alturas to recruit and serve a diverse group of students. According to the founder, Michelle Ball, “Parents in the area didn’t even know their kids could go to a charter; that it’s a public school. Being in this location allows us to better communicate with these parents and help them understand how to enroll.”
