It is a personal education. Class sizes are small and the interaction between student and teacher is great! There are many activities one can be involved in but due to the small number of students, one can be stretched over too much. On the other hand, the environment is is safe and respectful.

I have greatly enjoyed my time at Anderson Preparatory Academy (APA). It is great in preparing students for college, but does not push too much for that because that also realize that college is not for everyone. APA has one of the only two AFJROTC units in the country that requires all students in the high school to participate. Overall, the school has challenged me academically and disciplinely to be more ambitious in what I do. They teach you to become a leader and allow you to be as much of or as little of one as you would like to be. Personally, I have achieved greatness by being in one of the top five positions in the AFJROTC leadership training program known as Top Staff, as well as earning a GPA of 3.8. I have greatly enjoyed my time at this school and I would highly recommend it to anyone who asked.
I’ve been going here for 7 years and I love it here. I can’t imagine going anywhere else for school. It’s great and so are the teachers and the environment!
