Idea College Prep Weslaco Reviews

In my opinion, IDEA Weslaco is very organized and functional. The faculty and administration make sure the students are on track for college. Students are required to take AP level classes that increase their chances to receive college credit. Although this is a very good thing, there are still some ways the school can improve. A few ways are by making the school larger since it does include all grade levels from elementary, middle school, and high school. The resources are not always the best because middle school has its classes outside in portables. Also, sports and activities are not as encouraging as they should be. The amount of students participating are few.

In IDEA Weslaco the education is meant for students like me to have a higher chance of going to college. Their everyday goal is to not only make sure that students understand the content but to also have hope in being able to get accepted to a college beneficial to them or their dream school. When I was first introduced to IDEA my thoughts were that it was going to be the same as it is with other public schools. However, my perspectives soon changed due to the fact that here teachers and students cared about what they learned. In most schools, one would expect that students only did what they wanted and teachers not doing something about it. IDEA believes that every student has the potential to have a bright future giving them the hope in that becoming someone in life is possible.
The communication between teachers and students is very poor. The academics are hardly any better; the classes are seldom engaging, and the school hardly takes responsibility for its wrongdoings. Definitely disappointing.
