One of the best schools any parent can send their child to! Teachers provide students with the help they need constantly. Expose their students to other cultures, as well as, teaching students discipline and character.
I went to APR from grades 6-12. In the beginning, I did not like the school but it became better. Over the years, many teachers have pushed me, even when I didn't want to be pushed, in order to reach my full potential. I learned confidence and how to hold my self accountable for my actions. I learned how to be a team member, a citizen and a friend. There's already a community in APR but I often found myself disconnected from the courses I was in. I think mixing current events with the interests of the students while maintaining the requirements for each grade level would be a great addition to APR. I think there should be more clubs offered at APR, such as language clubs or coding clubs. It would certainly unlock the potential of many and bring them out of their comfort zones. My experience at APR wasn't always pleasant but I learned so much about myself and about the world. Success is what you make it, but it takes a village.
Favorite experience is being in an english seminar class. My school is unique because it provides hands on help and they help guide you through it all. I wouldnt choose another school because I wouldnt succeed anywhere else
