Apex High School Reviews
I loved how many traditions Apex had that made it feel like home. From painting the rock, to the seniority that we had take place to help younger students become mature and ready for the rest of the world, to the themes we had every year for all our sports games, and so on. These were incredible opportunities to feel a part of a family here at Apex. Having great teachers in the electives I took and not only just for my core classes made a massive impact on my decisions for my future as well. For example, taking a business class seemed boring at first when my counselor added it to my schedule, but thanks to the awesome learning experience I had from my teacher I now want to major in Marketing! The best part about Apex was that no matter where you were put, there was light at the end of the tunnel and many people to support you in your journey to reach the top.
Apex High School was safe, fun, and populated. It needs to renovations it is receiving. We never won a football championship while I was there, but that doesn't mean the athletic department is sub par. Our women's soccer, lacrosse, and basketball teams were amazing. Our men's basketball team won State championships and made it onto WRAL quite a few times. Our cheerleaders were friendly on and off the courts. The principal, Mr. Wright, was attentive, aware, and around. Sadly, he had been moved to another school, but I've heard nice things about the new principal. There are many clubs on campus and they're very diverse! You will find something you like.
Apex High School had a unique character. It was desperately in need of physical renovations, which thankfully it is finally getting, so hopefully future students will not have to deal with such a substantial cockroach problem. I took several AP classes at Apex, and as a second-year university student, I can confidently say that they did not prepare me for college-level learning. Frankly, some of them were a joke that we used as a GPA booster. We were never taught how to write beyond the framework of the "5 Paragraph Essay," which is almost never useful in college. Despite its many flaws, Apex offered enough classes with passionate, kind teachers that I was able to succeed in my first year of university.
