Idea Carver College Preparatory Reviews

Something that is great about IDEA is that they pay for all of your exams like ACT, SAT, and AP Exams. Another thing they are good at is the teachers really want you to succeed and some give you tips on how to go throughout college. Things they could do better is create a more safety environment by having a high school security or metal detector and have more school spirit. Another down side is that clubs and activities are only after school and most students are busy and some are already tired and want to go home. IDEA Carver is well known for their academics and how well students do, this is because of how teachers and students are well understood with each other and how well of interactions they have while they teach the class.

IDEA Carver is a public school that I was introduced to when I was in need of a crucial change in my life. It might not possess the most energetic school spirit or an excessively huge cafeteria, but it sure does contain life changing mentors. The teachers I've had in my 2 years of being in Carver have each played a role in who I am today. IDEA doesn't make these teachers, so if these teachers impact a students life positively, they did it inherently. They are strong-willed enough to take the reprimands of their higher power and continue to show up to class.
I love how supporting this preparatory is! The amount of support from teachers is spectaticular. Despite this being a small school, I believe this school has the potential to beat out larger schools. Initally, I would love to see more classes added to the school so all students have the chance to do what they love.
