By far the teachers were the best part of this school. I've been here since 7th grade to senior year and I love how the teachers are so understanding and nice to you in every class. APA really prepares you for college in your senior year as well, with a class dedicated to preparing you for college and real life. Their rigorous coursework also prepared me to be prepared in college. Right now I am in college and the coursework so far is equal or even less than APA's work. I feel like I've been taught social manners, academics, and how to put myself out there to learn and better myself. You may not get as much as freedom as other public schools, like Granger, but it is worth it being here with its strict work. I have lifetime friends from here, the diversity was mostly hispanics/latinxs and I felt welcomed and never ever bullied here. I would bring my kids here if I could!

I seriously cannot hands down recommend APA WVC 2 enough! This school is exceptional in more ways that could be put into words but I will attempt! All ages of students have built in programs & the support they need to succeed. Love & logic & genuine motivation is seen & addressed moment by moment! I substitute taught from September-May with some brief breaks with family emergencies. I taught every age group. I also subbed as an instructor. I experienced first hand what this school exemplifies. I have assisted at many schools; private, public, home school programs etc. This curriculum & type of teaching & support seriously incorporates the very best of all of those different types of schools combined into one setting & atmosphere!
Great School! Everyone at APA is kind and the teachers are all amazing. There are many clubs and activities. There is also dance and cheer which is very fun and enjoyable. Also they have lots of sports like basketball, soccer, baseball, volleyball,etc. Overall I think APA is a good school.
