Academy Park is a great school, I attended this school for my entire high school semester. The teachers are very caring and the atmosphere is very friendly. I can say from experience myself that when a teacher see's something wrong action is immediately taken! They make sure each student feel comfortable enough to open up about personal issues. I like that my school is very hands on and caring when it comes to teenage pregnancy. They have a program for young teenagers who are expecting, this program informs new parents on how to fill out paperwork such as WIC. This program also provides clothing, food, strollers and many other things to help the new parent. One thing I believe they should improve is helping students find a job and teaching them how to fill out applications.

Academy Park High School is by far one the best high schools I have ever been at. With the best teachers which are hardworking and serious about their work. You can easily talk and understand them.They try their best in teaching us and correcting us. Our administrative staff members like the guidance staff are very easy to talk to and understand whenever you have a question or something is troubling you, they make sure to listen and solve your issues. It's also one of the safest schools, environmental friendly and clean. It's also serves breakfast and lunches everyday.Transportation is also not an issue in Academy Park High School the busses takes you in and out of the school.Academy Park also involves itself in activities like , going to educative tv shows, field trips, and whole lots of things.
One of the I would like them to change is, themy involving themselves in less popular sports like girls soccer, field hockey etc.
Academy Park High School is a tremendous institution. However, it gets a bad rep due to a select few of the students. The teachers care about the students and their education. However, they will only help those who want help. Many of my peers were disruptive and disrespectful. Perhaps this is due to the socioeconomic status that several of us were in. Nevertheless, I think AP does a phenomenal job of teaching students and setting them up for post-diploma success.
