APR is an excellent charter school. While some schools focus solely on academics the teachers at APR reward Kaizen and Gambatte, which translates roughly to continual improvement and never giving up. That means that even if a student isn't at the top of the class, he or she is celebrated for the effort and the willingness to stretch. An example is the requirement that all students learn Mandarin. Most students would argue that they wouldn't be able to learn to read and write such a complicated language, but they all achieve some level of proficiency as long as they work hard. By focusing on character, the faculty is able to pull out the best of students, whatever their individual skills may be. Almost all student go on to higher study, and that is because there is an expectation that students will stretch themselves and not give up. APR has been a great character building environment, which, in turn, leads to academic success.

APR is an amazing place to grow academically, with dedicated teachers and yearning to learn students. APR has slowly moved to become more progressive in its non-academic life, the diversity amongst the faculty has gradually increased since my start as a 5th grade student. Student agency is a unique factor of APR, however the approach of student to the administrative body could be improved in seeing direct progressive of issues. We take pride as a school in our academics, but not in our spirit as a community. We need that pride, and more importantly to wear that pride...we go to an awesome school, why not show it off?
My experience at the Academy of The Pacific Rim was overall pretty good. I enjoyed building connections with my teachers and took advantage of some resources that they provided for students and I. For example, I got into a program called Summer Search, which basically made sure students in High School were successful and prepared for College. Although Academy of the Pacific Rim was a really good experience for me academically, I wished they had more sport clubs such as football, swimming, fencing, and squash.
