American Preparatory Academy Las Vegas changed my life. When I first moved from Philadelphia to Las Vegas, I was very lost. I did not know what to do because I was so lost. When my mom researched charter schools in Las Vegas, American Prep immediately caught her eye. She enrolled me as soon as possible and I was accepted. My first couple days at school were hard but I eventually made friends and American Prep became a second home to me. I truly love all the administration and students at American Prep and my heart belongs to them.

American Preparatory Academy is a public charter school bustling with builders, strong school spirit, and caring teachers.

The academics are more rigorous than the regular public. Many teachers make effort to convey their message and, in some cases, even develop a relationship with students. Unlike most schools, a character development class in 4th period is held for all students' development as citizens and individuals. Their goal is preparing students for college and the real world.

The school also strongly encourages parent involvement. In return, many families donate to keep the school running.

Not only do the teachers educate, but they also play a major role in safety for the school, obliged to follow proper evacuation procedures.

For many reasons, cases of bad behavior are generally observed at lower rates than in other regular public schools I have attended.

Elaborating on other noteworthy facts will take more than 1000 characters to write.
The environment at APA is the safest anyone will find in Las Vegas. They emphasize the importance of becoming an exemplary citizen of the United States through their unique Character Development program. However, after 4 years of attending APA, it is hard to ignore the intense eurocentrism in their curriculum as well as the values that are taught, whether intentional or not. Not many classes are offered that allow students to find interests, such as diverse elective or language classes.
