Idea Edinburg College Preparatory Reviews

As a student at IDEA College Preparatory, I feel privileged to have access to their high-quality education. One of the best things about IDEA is that its curriculum allows students to take Advanced Placement classes without any prerequisites. This will enable us to challenge ourselves academically and broaden our knowledge base by taking college-level courses that prepare us for higher education. The AP classes we take at IDEA provide us with a solid foundation to understand the subjects better and how they are taught in college. Although the school has limited activities, they are still enjoyable to attend and allow us to develop a deeper connection with the close-knit community. However, if there is one thing I would like to change about IDEA, it would be to add more after-school activities to their existing collection. The addition to the wide selection of after-school activities would give students more options to choose from and expand our range of interests.
Before when I wasn’t in IDEA I had really bad grades sometimes I didn’t listen to the teachers, or do my assignments. When I went to IDEA I improved so much in my academics with the help of my amazing teachers they pushed me to pass their exams and class which is why I’m so grateful for them because they were part of the reason why my gpa is a good.
Ever since middle school, my time at Idea Edinburg College Preparatory has been worthwhile. At this high school, I have met teachers that have provided me with support and guidance throughout my academic career. Wether it was in between classes or after school, these teacher were always available to talk to and reach out to for help, which is something that I greatly appreciate . Aside from the teachers, the students I have met and formed bonds with have also taught me the value of connecting with others. Without these people by my side, I know that my experience would drastically differ. Although there is many positives about Idea, one thing that is worth mentioning is the lack of variety in extracurricular activities and elective classes. I feel that with more options available, student would have a greater opportunity to explore and discover their talents and passions. Overall, Idea College prep is an excellent school that pushes students’ full academic potential.
Idea throws all students into AP classes and holds high standards for attendance and community service. At times it can be difficult to keep up with the expectations but this school really does help prepare you for the future, and idea is 100% dedicated to students matriculating to college, they’ll be with you every step of the way.
I like the fact that they care so much about the students' future. They always hold the students accountable for their grades, ask if we're doing well, and even give us time to work on our applications for colleges and scholarships during class time or during the whole period. This school cares so much about their students that the teachers and staff give us extensions when we need them. At the end of the months, they give us awards for what we've done for classes during the whole month. I would only fix the fact that they make us take so many AP courses, but it's beneficial to us during college once we pass the exams. I would also fix the fact that they enforce so much dress code, but who wouldn't complain about a dress code?
My experience at Idea Edinburg CP has honestly been great. I am so proud to say that I am graduating from this wonderful school this May. I first attended this school in 2012, and I was so happy with how easily you can make friends, the college level courses, and the school spirit most importantly. We are all a team & family. Once an eagle, always an eagle!
Idea Edinburg College Preparatory is a great school to get ahead and learn more about what to do after high school. The teachers are amazing at helping students learn and will dedicate their time and effort into helping students understand the content. They help you out with college applications and they make sure you stay on track to graduate. Idea Edinburg is also located in an area where you can get community service hours, volunteering, as well as afterschool activities.
I like that its a small school and you get to know everyone. We take the ACT for free and have a good coices for AP classes. There is also great counselors who help us throught our college applications.
My experience at Idea Edinburg is great they help the students with their academics so they can help them improve their knowledge at an advance level so that we can be prepared for college. They have many Activities, Clubs and Sports we have the best teams we might not be perfect sometimes we have our struggles but everyone we help overcome it because in Idea we are just like family and we support each other and it is rare because sometimes some schools might not have this but everything is possible with communication. We have cultures of celebration activities we do a day of all grade level an event of full of fun games activities and teachers are also involved and it is fun to see so, I would recommend to other families to apply to Idea if they want a better academic for their children's and be prepared for their futures.
Idea Edinburg is a great school because the teachers cares for you. They will try their hardest for you to be successful. The environment of the place is great , everyone is friendly and we treat each other like family. There the reason why im here .
Overall the schools main goal is to get your child to college. This makes it a great pick or anyone that wants to go to college. The teachers and counselors are also very involved in the process to get that student to college/university. To further that goal they will focus on giving students a lot of chances to shine. For example they will pay or your AP exams and ACT tests. This incentives students to take the test and if they fail they could always take it again next year but with preparation. Overall the school is very good if you want to go to the college of your choice.
What I like about Idea Edinburg is that they actually care about not only your well being, but your success as well. They have college counselors that help you with everything that has to do with college. Whether it be essays, scholarships, or applications.
I like how the staff are very aware of the students' needs and do anything to make them feel comfortable and safe in the learning environment. The teachers also know how individual students work and the best way for them to learn in order for them to be successful. Although the school is not very big, it is a very nice learning environment. We learn something new everyday and I feel they truly are preparing us for the real world. They also offer lots of different activities, of which I am a part of like 5. We don't have a lot of school spirit, which is something we could work on to get students excited to go to school, but our academics are great. We have great teachers and we get good scores, although I wish there was more classes that would prepare students for their individual field. For example, I want to go into business, but don't have a clue how it is since I've never prepared for it. Overall, it is a great school which has the potential to get better over the years.
When my parents first told me that I was going to leave my friends, and attend IDEA, I was very upset. I vowed to never forgive my parents. However, I eventually made friends and came to realize that the teachers really do care for their students. One of our core values is "Team and Family" and it really does feel that way. I am so sad to say that it is my last year as senior at this school. I hope college treats me the same.
what i liked is that they committed to get there students to do a hundred percent everyday and reach college readiness
What I really liked about Idea were the people that i met and the relationships that I built with the people not only in my grade level but in others as well. One thing that I would like to see change in this school is some the size , I believe that if our campus were bigger in size we would have a better learning experience and overall, a better experience in general.
Overall as a student it has been a really good experience and everyone is so united in this graduating class. I highly recommend coming because this school bases off putting all their students into college.
