IDEA Brownsville College Preparatory Reviews

3 reviews
What I like about Idea is that they make us think, they ask more questions in order for us to put more effort on the work we do. Also we take AP classes which help us be able to obtain college credits or gain some knowledge of the topic we are learning . Although what the school is providing us, it will give us a higher chance to get credit to go to a college and is preparing us for college and how the classes will be, the school has made us very dependent on the teachers, so I believe that we , the students will have a hard time trying to get our schedules done or getting informed about something. We will probably not struggle in the classes so much since we are having an experience but we will struggle in organizing ourselves.

Positive: Strong curriculum, high expectations from teachers. Good school counselor. Focused on College preparation. uniform.
Negative: no breaks during the day, a lot of homework.
Good school. Hard to get in. Many mexican kids that that live across the border take up some of the slots and prevent local residents from getting selected.
