Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See American Preparatory Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

American Preparatory Academy Reviews

By a Current Student on

i love this school! so far it is fantastic! i love being pushed to my very best! it is the norm, not the exception, to be smart and nice.  True, it's not for the kids who likes to play video games all day, or just hang around.  you have homework every day.  and LOADS of homework.  i attend the junior high.  i like how little people there are in the junior high- just about 200 people.  if you're looking for a school that will meet your needs- whether you be parent or kid- APA is the school for you! All the teachers are amazing.  there is no time wasted and you are expected to be on top of things.  i personally recommend APA and i hope you will like it too.

We love American Prep Academy! My child attended the local public school nearby and would often mention how bored she was as she waited for other students to finish the same assignment. We don't hear that complaint now that she attends APA. APA challenges my children at their own level.

I also love how patriotic American Prep is. They teach our children to appreciate being an American and to express gratitude for those who serve our country and preserve our freedoms.

APA also encourages optimism and a "can do" attitude.

Teachers are excellent, always encouraging students to do what is right and to do their best. Thank you APA!

American Prep Academy is top notch academically. We have been so pleased with the results. My favorite thing is that the core subjects are fluid between grade levels. This makes it possible for students to be met exactly where they are and challenged there. The social program is fantastic as well! The children are taught to have great manners, show respect, and to be people of good character. I was initially worried about the students living all over the valley, but my children have made great friends and are really happy there. We're still pulling for that soccer field though!!!!!

American Preparatory Academy. changed my life. I only spent one year there after being in public school from k to 8 but I learned more every period than I did in my 9 years of public school. It may be strict but it is well worth it. I wish I could have spent more time there.

The teachers and curriculum at American Preparatory Academy are amazing!

By a Parent on

American Preparatory Academy is absolutely incredible. I'm not sure where the statistics on free/reduced lunches came from, but my kids are on it. I have never found another free school that was so good at teaching the kids exactly at their level. There is no "dumbing down" of the standards or curriculum because each student is grouped with other kids at the same level. Kids move to the next group as soon as they are ready, not waiting for some other student to catch up. The special education kids are not taken out of their peers' classes. The teachers accommodate them as needed and every child is taught extremely well.
