Idea Edinburg College Preparatory Reviews

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.

There are some flaws in the school such as a lack of school spirit in school events due to our small population in school, regardless we have a good curriculum that ensures that no one is left behind. The AP classes we take is heavily STEM based classes, leading us to struggle more but to learn overall what we struggle. Our facilities are always kept to standards with cleaning during after-school hours and weekends. The teachers I've had from middle school till my senior year have been overall great. The only main concern I had was when teachers ad to be out for awhile due to pregnancy or family obligations. Over more the one main thing that I would want to change about this school would be school-spirit, though that NHS has done a lot to maintain this, it would be the motive of participation.
IDEA edinburg college preparatory is the best school for all students because idea sets high expectations for every student and goes the extra mile to make sure every student realizes their own potential. personalized learning, critical thinking skills, mastery of core subject is the recipe or success. IDEA boosts confidence and teaches us to establish and maintain friendships and helps us learn how to work together as a team. IDEA also help us prepare us for life. not only can we learn the basic skills to read,write and do arithmetic but we can learn about peoples places and nature. It also has a variety of sports which is pretty cool because every time we have a game everyone goes and support our school and its very cool because no matter what happens, we lose or win were always gonna be there for our team mates. This is why i love being an idea student.
