I like how organize idea quest is because they prioritize mainly in academics but also athletic.Idea give us the students many opportunity to give us an advantage in college because its a college preparatory school.Idea quest is a blue ribbon school,the people in this school work hard to represent our school because we have pride in what we do.The students are all equal and have the same opportunity that other students have, if they put the effort.But to show how much of chances other students have, we have after school activities that can give us a chance to get scholarships or help their resume, to show the after school activities we have at our school.I am proud of going to idea quest because we are all equal and strive for the same goal,to go to college!

At IDEA College Preparatory, I like that students are put into rigorous curriculums which challenges the student to think. This in turn forms the student's mind to be prepared for college since in college the courses are much more advanced. Here Students are prepared for that kind of challenges from teachers as well as themselves. We as students are accustomed to wear uniforms to also prepare us for jobs, where we are put into an environment that requires it like a suit or tie, this creates Professionalism within the students.
Here at Idea, what I have enjoyed most about my school are the academic achievements we have reached as a whole such as achieving the National Blue Ribbon Award and obtaining the highest averaging score in the ACT. I am proud to say that over the years I have created a bond with my classmates like no other, our small graduating class has given us an opportunity to get to know each other, since 5th grade I have known these people and consider them family. For the faculty and teachers here at Idea, I want to thank them for their dedication and passion in teaching these students everyday, and never giving up on us no matter how hard it is. Without them I wouldn't be the person I am today.
