Overall, this school is wonderful as it prepares you for college and what is yet to come.

IDEA College Prep had been a wonderful experience in helping students work during class and during the break. Even though many times it can be tough, there are many opportunities that IDEA gives the students. There are teachers who work with the students when they need help. Students ask questions about any assignment they do not understand. Most part the students and the administration work together as a team and family, which is one of the principles in IDEA.
IDEA College Prep - Donna has been a great High School to attend so far as up until now every teacher I have had has genuinely put in their best efforts and has shown high interest in me and the hopes/dreams I have for the future, as well as my classmates. Each teacher, and faculty member for that matter deeply care about each individual student at our school and do their best to help the student achieve their goals. In addition to this, the relative small classes at IDEA (non greater that 140 students) ensure that each student gets to know one another which has allowed us to form bonds and connections with one another that we would not have been able to create in another high school.
