Hello, my name is Angela Gonzalez and I had the opportunity to spend 3 years at IDEAL Middle, graduating in 2012. After IDEAL I went to G-Star School of the Arts, where I was a film major. I was also apart of the IB Program (International Baccalaureate), which offered me a more advanced education. I was a member of the art club and became the president during my sophomore year. As part of the Act Club, I participated in a few events such as the Kinetic Art Festival and the Street Painting Festival, both amazing experiences. I am still immensely grateful for the experience.
I am currently enrolled in Palm Beach State College getting my AA. I am working to complete my final semester before I begin classes as PBAU with a major in film.
IDEAL gave me my first few important and healthy friendships, it gave me the confidence to be myself unapologetically and participate in school activities like Art Club. It prepared me for the academic challenges that came with IB, especially since much of the work required analytical and critical thinking skills that IDEAL Middle provided. I learned how I learn and I have been able to tailor my education to me. IDEAL truly prepared me for my future.
