    Irving ISD is the ONLY district in Texas to offer an entrepreneurship curriculum experience to every 5th-grade student.  A recent Gallup Student Poll showed that Irving ISD had a higher rate of students planning on opening their own business compared to the U.S. overall.  The Irving Develops Entrepreneurial Achievers (IDEA) program is an 18-week program is designed to help teams of students navigate through the process of becoming entrepreneurs.  Every IISD 5th grader has an opportunity to explore their interests in starting a business and gain experience in collaboration, communication, creativity, and teamwork.


    At John Haley, our students created 26 businesses using the tools provided and a little help from our mentors at MJB Wood Group, Inc. Our partners have been with us for well over 10 years now making a real difference in the lives of students and helping with academics.  With the work of their teachers and staff, we have covered concepts such as communication, marketing, planning, budget, inventory, unique proposition value, collaboration, and being part of a team.  We are so proud of the students and their efforts.  Here are a few photos.

    Afterschool Robotics

    Once again John Haley will be participating in the annual virtual robotics competition held via Edmodo with schools in Lewisville, Flower Mound, Irving ISD, and India.  We are excited to introduce some of the students participating this year into our problem-based learning project.  One of our teams placed 2nd last year. We are excited to see the ideas this year's group will produce.

    "Consider how robots have changed our world.  One small invention can completely change how we live or interact with each other.  No matter how large or life-changing an invention is, it starts with a very small concept: an idea.  Every great invention started as a thought in someone's head.  Many inventions have resulted from ideas generated by kids!  Kids thought of better ways to do things, and they were able to put their ideas into action.  You are the next generation of innovators!  What are some problems that you would like to solve with an invention?"

    Thank you to all the parents who have allowed their children to stay for this program by making special arrangements each day we meet.  We are excited to see the ideas our students will come up with and the models they will create.

  • MJB Wood Group, Inc. - Our PIE, Partner in Education


    Once again our PIE has been making a difference at John Haley. They purchased a stream table to help students understand more about the changes our earth goes under each day. They have donated supplies for our nurse to use in the clinic such as bottled water to keep germs from spreading, new underwear for students that have accidents, and peppermints to settle an upset stomach. Last fall already MJB Wood had a breakfast for teachers and given away tons of gift cards.  They have helped us with the cost of a Science Night with the Perot Museum that enables the museum to come to our campus for free.  We are so excited about all the ways MJB Wood Group Inc. works to have an impact at John Haley.  The long-standing relationship with them has really made a difference in the education and experience for staff and students here at John Haley.

    Our IDEA mentors - working with student groups, listening to their business pitches, and asking questions about their products.  The students really thrived in having a real "business" audience in which to speak with about their ideas.

  • Transfer Renewals for 2018-2019 School Year

    On February 1, all parents who have an Irving ISD student currently on a transfer received an email with instructions on how to renew this transfer for the 2018-2019 school year. Requests to renew current transfers will be accepted through February 28 using the link provided via email. If this is applicable to you and you did not receive an email, please contact the Campus Operations PK-12 office at 972-600-5023. Please note, transfer students who are currently in grades PreK, 5th and 8th will be considered a new transfer for next year. Because these students will not attend the same campus when school begins in August, parents must submit a new transfer request if they desire to continue on to a school outside their attendance zone. The period to submit a new transfer request begins March 1. For more information, visit
