A. Philip Randolph Academies School Reviews
A. Philip Randolph is a school for students that are willing to learn; however the stuents that come to this school are mentally deficient and if they continue to behave in the manner that they do than it will continue to be a failure in the society. This is not what the teachers aim for. The good students get overlooked and saught as terrible children and the mentally challenged students, as for as academics are deprived from learnig by the mentally deficient or troublesome kids. Now that the indificient teachers have left it is up to other teacher, in particularly students themselves to learn about school and do what is required to graduate and excel in a career. thanks to the English Department and Academy teachers students are capable of learning that.
Well, our school received a bad reputation through violence, fights, all that... but its high school. We arent some perfect academy, but we are striving for that position. Our school representatives are like no other, the teachers are well educated themselves, and they interact with the students very very well. Teachers try hard to relate to the students, and they are always worried about their education. A lot of children don't give these instructors a chance. We are pushing, even though we aren't there yet. We are trying hard to become what the school is supposed to be. The diversity at our academy is almost beautiful, there are so many new kinds of people just trying to do something different. Our students, my peers... they have potential... sit down and get inside of their minds, they have potential. People say the worst things about our academy sometimes. Yes we are short of money, yes we have some issues, yes we need to improve... but we are working. We are looking in the right direction. Our school is wonderful. And I would stand up for it. Im running for Junior Class President next year! VOTE FOR ME!
As a teacher at APR, I would like to point out that no student at APR would be allowed to get away with a paragraph that used "tenor" for "tenure" and "their" for "there." There is a police officer assigned to every school in Duval County.
Overrall the school is good but during my tenor their the teachers had trouble controlling their students. There were a lot of fights and there was almost always a police presence at the school.
