When starting at IDEA I was a bit intimidated because my community had given me the impression that this school was very prestigious as it only selected a small handful of "smart" people. Having spent my middle school and high school years in this school I can proudly say that yes IDEA does have smart students, but i’d go beyond that and say that we also have students who are in addition the most creative, innovative, well-driven, kind, and passionate people I’ve possibly ever met. As for my graduating class, it quite honestly is the smallest class that you’d probably not notice us unless you really look into us, but the communication, respect, and the pride we have towards each other that makes me feel as if my class is greater than what is actually is.

IDEA College Prep San Juan is a wonderful educational establishment full of great and amazing teachers that push their students to their fullest potential.My experience at this school was nothing but amazing, their goal of 100% students attending college is something that gave me peace of mind. Knowing that they will get me ready and give me all the tools necessary to succeed in college. The college councilors are super helpful and guide you every step of the way in the college application process and the scholarship application process. Overall IDEA College Prep San Juan is a school that prides itself on its core values of Team and Family as well as 100% every day.
The IDEA district was created on the idea to give under represented minorities the opportunity to increase their living conditions by pushing them to pursue a higher education. I strongly believe that the IDEA family, specially in IDEA San Juan does a great job accomplishing this mission. In comparison with regular public schools in South Texas, students are exposed to college preparation since elementary school. Not enrolling in college is not an option as an IDEA student. Moreover, no matter what student it is, teachers continue to push through in order to achieve the mission previously described, and the atmosphere they create in campus allows students to believe in themselves.
