has given me first hand experience in university life. Their field lessons not only provided fun, but showed students what to expect when they go to expect when attending college from real university students. Whether it is an after school parade or burning of letters IDEA San Benito has an engaging school spirit that encourages students to get involved within school activities.68 An improvement that can be made by the school is a better sense of communication. Sometimes when announcing events or relaying information the message is received untimely. Ultimately, IDEA College Prep- San Benito has taught me well for my future academics.

IDEA is a school organization that helps students graduate with knowledge about their future and help to get to college. My experience at IDEA San Benito has been memorable as I was introduced into a new culture. As it is a charter school, students understood the value of strict curriculum and expectations. I was able to form good relationships with my teachers and get their help through my years of middle school and high school.
The teachers at IDEA San Benito have been nothing short of absolutely wonderful. Throughout the years I've attended the school (since the start of middle school), the teachers have pushed me, as well the other students, to really grasp the concepts school threw at me. My only gripe about the school is the food, however, considering we live in San Benito, were income is critically low, is fine. We're so poor in fact, that all the students are provided with free lunch, since the majority of students can't afford their meals. Other than the food, the school is absolutely amazing.
