I'm going to write a manga in the near future ( after I design everything ^^; )

And well.. I has a similar concept to Boku no Hero Academia
Just the whole "hero school" kind of thing. I don't want to copy it, just some parts from it will be the same.

Many of my characters are from different parts of the world ( US, Greece, China , Africa, etc )
The school(s) also offer different kinds of programs; so a "hero" and a "support hero" (( I have a different name for 'heros')) And people without "powers" can also go to these types of schools, mostly entering as a "support hero"

I talked to many of the people I know about my ideas and they all really like the concept of it all. But I'm still not sure if I'll be ''stealing'' ideas.

So could I have your guys opinion as well please?

It would be better if you came up with the concept entirely but at the same time it's so many mangas out there that you would probably use the same idea as someone else.
Go with the concept and if anyone find the similar just say Boku no hero academia who? what?

Ideas are not exactly copyrighted.

I also suggest you add a forbidden love story between an onii chan and his imouto.

I'm trying my best making it mostly original
Like theirs a bunch of magic high school manga/anime too, so I thought it would be fine

And your right haha Boku Hero what??

During my admittedly short time in costume class I learned (though had already figured as much) that basically nothing is original anymore, it's just a matter of changing it up enough that it seems original.

So long as you don't straight lift from HeroAca and do some good world building you should be fine.
