I have been attending IDEA Edinburg College Preparatory since middle school in August 2012 and I will graduate as a senior in high school in June 1, 2019. Ever since its foundation in 2011, IDEA Edinburg welcomed new opportunities for educational growth in Edinburg, Texas by introducing grade levels from 6th to12th grade. Something that I will always love about IDEA Edinburg is the strong support that teachers and staff give to students with their education through assignments and tutoring sessions for additional instruction that ensures all students pass their classes. On the other hand, something that I would love to see in IDEA Edinburg's future is an opportunity for future senior graduating classes to reunite with each other at the campus and discuss their lives after high school graduation as a way to represent the everlasting unity that exists between students and success that they have achieved through the path that IDEA Edinburg gifted them.

Upon transitioning to Idea my eighth grade year I can certainly say that i noticed a difference compared to my previous schools. Entering idea one of the things i noticed and currently still do is that everyone is accepting towards everyone. Not once is anyone left out in any situation, whether facing problems with school or personal reasons someone is always there for you. This has allowed me and others as well to grow a true loving and loyal friendship each other and with the teachers. One major thing I'd love to point out is Idea has an excellent team of administers, teachers, and counselors who definitely reach out and help students achieve success towards going to college. They help students grow not only academically but spiritually as well motivating us to attend school and prepare us for the future. One thing i know for sure about Idea is that we're all a family and I wouldn't change it for any other.
What I liked about this campus is how caring the counselors are. They make sure that every student gets at least 9 college applications done. They keep up with students making sure that they are passing their classes. What I disliked about this campus is that we didn't have a gym or cafeteria of our own. We needed to use Boys&Girls club gym/cafeteria so all grades can eat, and every sport such as basketball and volleyball had a place to practice and play their district games.
