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.
I attended IDEA College Prep-San Juan for 6 years, and I can say over all my experience in this school was pretty good. At the time I didn't worry about the same thing my parents did. My mother’s main concern was my safety and education. Safety is one thing I can agree they deserve an A+ for. As for my education, I can say what they provided was definitely at a higher level than most public schools. Over all I had alot great years in this school , and understand now why this school seemed evidently superior in my parents eyes.
