I've been with IDEA Mays College Prep since 6th grade, this school has grown so much and im deeply grateful for having the amazing opportunity to go to college. This school in a good manner, started with just two grade levels and now, we are a full Kinder- 12th grade. Although most teachers left the school they all have made a big impact on my life on being student.
This school is honestly...well very controlling. But the people here are what makes it worth it. When I first came here it was honestly because of my problems. This place is where I've tried to get better and have met others with similar issues. This school works hard to build a sense of community and unity among its staff, students, and including the substitute teachers. Most of us kids here are hard workers and all of the classes offered are very challenging...In other words, I'm not as bored as I used to be in school. The only issue for the future with this establishment is that people here are very sheltered, and possibly not ready for the real world where no one will hold your hand through it all.
The academics were great but discipline was not encouraged at all until something happened. Admin was good but would only enforce rules when it was needed.
Overall it is an okay school in many perspectives. Academic wise it is really good but admin and sports are not really the best.
This school has many clubs the scholars can choose from and they are even given the opportunity to create new clubs they are interested in so long as they get a adult sponsor to assist them. All the clubs are so fun and the kids have a great time learning new things they are interested in. I am part of the staff and have participated in the arts and crafts clubs and the kids had a great time being very creative with their ideas and expressing themselves creatively.
I am a student attending IDEA Mays and I have really made a connection with the teachers and staff because I feel that they actually care about me and are excellent and getting the information across to us including personalized help if it is required.
They put the students safety first . although the give me fives and track me was absurd its teaching me good.I can say im ready for college coming out of this school.
