While I didn't go through the Academy myself, I have friends whose siblings go there, and I've helped the Academy organize events and such. It's an excellent part of our IDEA Campus that prepares children for college. The teachers are wonderful and consistently keep the parents notified of what's going on.

Here at Idea san benito when I first arrived as a freshman I felt so welcomed and everybody was so out there. Throughout the years I made acquaintances but I also made one real friend Martha. She is one of the realest girls I have ever. She always has my back. Friends are one thing, and another I experienced was the culture of idea and everything that comes with it. I also had to get used to something new because idea is a charter school which is half private and half public it meant we had to use uniforms. Of course I realized the transition of going to a public school to a charter was gonna be new, but everything that came with the school I had to try and get used to it.
I liked that they assist you greatly in preparing for college and applying. I had some issues through the year with bullying and how the administration handled situations but for the most part it’s a school I would recommend. They even help you with field lesson trips to visit colleges so we can see the campus first hand. They pay for ACT multiple times and have a class devoted to ACT to ensure all students are having the potential to get accepted in their match and fit school.
