Idea Quest College Prep has been my home for almost 4 years now. I have made extraordinary memories here with my friends, parents, teacher, and counselors. Here at Idea we have 3 core rules. Sweat the Small stuff, Whatever it Takes, and Closing the Achievement gap. These rules have become the reason why I have made and am still making so many amazing memories. They have made me become close to friends because of study groups, have a close relationship with the counselors, and made me understand my parent's advice.I love Idea Quest! Once a Blazer always a Blazer.

I started at IDEA Quest College Preparatory as a 2nd grader, so you could say that I was raised in this school. I grew up under the same administration, saw a couple of principles and teachers come and go, witnessed different rules and regulations, but what stayed constant was the dedication of the staff to educating students. Throughout my elementary, middle and high school career, I was fortunate to have been taught by the hard working, genuine teachers and administrators of Quest. Though I never always agreed with their stringent uniform codes and excessive classroom expectations, prioritizing education was always inherent. For this, I appreciate IDEA Quest College Preparatory and am thankful for investing in my education.
Idea Quest College Preparatory is an excellent school. They prepare you for college through rigorous courses, but also provide you with wonderful support through councilors and teachers who care about their students success. The atmosphere for the students is welcoming and accepting for the most part. Overall, a great school for students who want to challenge themselves and receive the most support when choosing and applying to colleges.
