    "I have been at IDEA Donna since kindergarten and I seen everything change for the better. IDEA makes sure to send each student to college and finds ways to help the parents in anything they need. IDEA has been the place where I spend more time at then anywhere else. IDEA is my home and I'm really happy that it has expanded all around Texas because now more students like me will have the opportunity to go to college when some don't have that opportunity . The only thing I want IDEA to do is to bring the spirit back like it was before so the students can have a little bit more fun."

    "My overall experience at IDEA Donna is filled with positive energy. The teachers and faculty are kind and care about your academic readiness. Somethings I would like to see change would be the division of students within the same grade level in order for students to feel more welcomed into IDEA. I would also like to see administration be better prepared for certain events."

    "I have attended IDEA College Preparatory Donna for five years now. The only thing I like about the school is that teachers are hired from all over the United States to teach at a school that is predominantly Mexican/Mexican American. I also like that all 11th and 12th grade students are automatically enrolled in International Baccalaureate courses, a program which, if offered at a higher income school, costs anywhere from $275 to $900. Something I would like to see change, however, is the campus itself. Here, we have PreK through 12th grade on a very small campus. The college prep (6th-12th) shares everything with the academy (PreK-5th)- the gym, small cafeteria, and playground/soccer field."

    "I absolutely loved Idea, which was hard to admit when I was enrolled. The teachers were there for me anytime. They made sure things were well at home and my education. It's hard for a Hispanic populated place to be diverse, but in a way we all were diverse. We were all from different socio-economic backgrounds. They gave free breakfast to students and if you were eligible for free lunch you were well fed. We had big projects and our teachers were an email, text or phone call away. They made their mission to be there for us no matter what. I even took an interest in American Sign Language and my computer teacher had a background in it and offered to open up a club with me. I was also very fortunate for their help to get college ready. As a graduate the college counselor were a big help, and I see plenty of students struggle in college. I can proudly state they helped my transition from high school to college quite easy."
