    "Every review is skewed by ones personal experience, so it is hard to be objective when rating a whole school. We have been there for three years with 4-6 kids, two moved to another school to play football. Having said that, my experience is generally great. Our kids are pushed to work hard and held accountable for their behavior and work. While I don't believe there is such thing as a perfect school, because kids have different needs, I do believe this school has a great combination of academic rigor, extracurricular activities, socio-economic mix and accountability (discipline). I like the uniforms, I like the college-going culture & I like the teachers/staff. Lastly, I like that all my kids are on a campus together, K-12. I prefer a smaller school where my kids are not just a number. If I had one suggestion for improvement it would be a better/more facilities for extracurricular activities. For examble, it is impossible to give enough gym time to the number of teams trying to use the one gymnasium/cafeteria, but they make due."

    "don't believe he hype. Although IDEA says all of its students graduate being accepted into a four year college, the reality of this is very different from the positive goal. I have watched, over the passed three yeras as the most experienced teachers and those with master's degres are allowed to move on. How can you build continuity and a culture with such a huge turn over rate? parents are not informed about what is really happening on the campus. The leadership does not want to improve. It's sad."

    "The student to teacher ratio is way to high. I believe it is above 30 to 1."

    "Teachers (for the most part) at this campus really go above and beyond when it comes to education. My son's have attended IDEA Quest for a few years now and have really shown considerable improvements in reading, math, and respect skills. Sadly, since there has been a new administration, things have slipped. I see disorganization and I've now seen a teacher be let go within the first 3 weeks of school. Something is going on at this campus and it needs to be addressed. I will be removing my children due to the recent chaos but as far as teachers go, I'll be really sad to say goodbye to them. I think that with enough parental support, our children can thrive at most public or private schools. IDEA Quest has potential... I'm sure they will gain my respect once again at some point in the future."

    "IDEA Public schools was recently awarded a prize from Teach For America. The schools' officers will receive this year s Peter Jennings Award for Civic Leadership. I think this award is justa reflection of their outstanding job with the kids"
