The students behave as a family, having above the value of team and family. Teachers are also attentive to the necessities of their students, providing academic and moral support during and outside of school, always enhancing the importance of sweating the small stuff. Academicals are excellent since it has a high variety of Advanced Placement courses that have given me the challenges and difficulties that a student needs in order to be ready for the life of a university student: always give 100% every day with no excuses. Due to its location, the school is full of diversity, where I have learned a lot about different cultures and perspectives on issues in our society and around the world. Aside from creating a strong community of leadership skills,Idea pushes 100% of its students to obtain a college degree that is compatible with their ability, creativity and devotion in order to demonstrate the value of closing the achievement gap and obtain the higher level of education possible.

I've been in IDEA ALAMO for seven years as a matter of fact that as a senior student they taught us how to be independent and they prepare us to enroll in college.IDEA gives us AP classes, a college course class that some school offers to their students.Another thing would be that IDEA acknowledge their own students in their academic performances and their skills,hobbies and certification.Although, one thing that they should change would be the fact that they should add in a variety of clubs/ activities.
IDEA Alamo is a campus who not only exceeds the expectation of college for all but a campus that enables their students to learn comfortably and efficiently. Our campus is known for our growth in academics but also in athletics and service in our community. I have been a part of the Griffin Team and Family for 7 years and never did I doubt our educational system and my self-worth. One thing I would change is to be able to let students experience a traditional high school experience more loosely while still being able to be the driven students IDEA promises. Our campus lives up to its expectations and being a STEM campus, it also enables students to broaden our career choices and have an open mind to new passions and interest. I have definitely found a second family by being a part of this campus. I will forever be grateful for the knowledge and unbreakable bonds I have attained along the way and will always be proud to be a Mighty Griffin.
