There is plenty of support for students seeking to go to college, as long as they actively work towards building positive, constructive relationships with those around them, including teachers and administrators. That being said, putting in the necessary work is a requirement in order to succeed at IDEA Mission. Apart from that, most teachers are very friendly, the smaller school makes it easier to build meaningful connections with peers and mentors, although there does tend to be some competitiveness when it comes to grades. Academics depend on the teacher and subject (obviously) but tend to be better than average.

Idea Mission College Prep is an excellent school to send your kids to. I have been in Idea ever since the six grade. This school makes sure that the students are academically on track to get to and through college. The administration makes sure that there is no conflict or bullying between students. Counselors make sure students have what they need to graduate highschool and then graduate college in 4 years. My experience at Idea has been great, my teachers and peers have been nothing but kind to me. Also my counselor has been through the college application process with me every step of the way. I would recommend parents to register their children at IDEA Mission College Prep.
IDEA College Prep-Mission is one of the best schools I have ever attended.It has plenty of diversity ranging from Latinos, African American,White, and surprisingly Scottish.Everybody gets along really well and the teachers and staff receive us like a team and family.Along with this, I really admire that IDEA'S main goal for every student is to attend college.I strongly believe that what IDEA is doing for future generations is remarkable. Although what I would value for the school to include Is to have better Sports.The main sports every student joins are basketball,soccer,volleyball, and flag football.I would like to see more sports like dodge ball, or regular tackle football at IDEA College Prep-Mission
