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.

IDEA College Prep. Alamo is a school with a diverse environment that offers stufents the true inner stress and frustrations of college. In this school one will find the resources fit for academic advancement and a deeper understanding of matriculating into college. The further one is dedicated to furthering their education and becoming a well rounded individual the further the fruits of this school stand out and show themselves.
My experience in IDEA College Preparatory in Alamo has been fantastic. In this school they push us beyond any self boundary we might have to allow us the opportunity to succeed in college and in life. IDEA also allows students have a the opportunity to build relationships with teachers and classmate due to the small teacher student ratio. I hope that IDEA Alamo will change through incorporating more diversity in the school. I will also wish for IDEA to allow students to relax a little more by not loading with homework even though I agree with the purpose IDEA has with homework. I appreciate how IDEA has changed my life because I do not know where I would be if I had not been to this school.
