Aptos Middle School Reviews
Not a desirable school
A large number of students who misbehave, disrupt classes, bully, and are failing.
Almost 20% special education students.
Administrators who are new and poorly suited for their positions.
Teachers hired on the basis of diversity rather than ability.
Pandering to minority students.
I, as a student, has learned many things in my first year at Aptos as a 6th grader. The staff actually helps you and most teachers/staff are very qualified to teach us. I've improved a lot in my weakest subject since I had my teachers. I think it's way better than Hoover or Giannini because it's not as independent, it has group work which helps your child to work better with others.
It's a more qualified school than A.P. Giannini or Hoover.
i think that aptos can really help u understand what your on your work.you wont regret coming here.its awsome here.come here for middle school.
