I like that the teachers really did care about the students and did what they could to get them to go to college, whether it was finding them scholarships, helping them with FAFSA or finding a college that fit according to their act scores and GPA. They focused more than just passing STAAR but also working on Ap exams which boosted students level of thinking. Also, the school would plan end of the year field trips where students would go to other states to visit different colleges such as Standford, Harvard, Tufts, Georgetown, and many more. It was a wonderful experience that showed students that they could have the option of going to a college that was out of the city or out of state.

I loved the support in terms of college applications and academics. I would change the amount of extracurricular activities they have. While you can form your own club whenever you want, there is lack of sports and the focus is much more on academics. I like that this focus gets me ready for college, but do recognize that after school involvement in extra curricular activities would have helped. Other than that, great school and would recommend to any one with the goal of going to college and finishing a career. Great preparatory. I have been here since I was in the 8th grade and my experience in terms of academics could not have been better elsewhere. The AP classes here are very demanding and rigorous, but they prepare me for the college life.
IDEA really challenges students in academics, its a great option for students who want to be challenged. We are taken to outside that state filed lessons to take a better look at colleges so that our options grow when choosing the perfect college for us.
