I loved my 4 years at Apollo High School! I think school is what you make of it. I personally got involved in areas that helped me serve others. I was a chair all 4 years on our Dance Blue Committee, my senior year I was overall chair. I worked with many businesses, teachers and schools in our district to lead my school in raising over $68,000 for kids with cancer. I participated in many clubs that helped benefit me in working with others that had differing opinions than my own. My teachers encouraged me in my classes to achieve success in all I do. I am blessed to be apart of the Eagle Family!

I’m heading on to early college at OCTC for my Junior and Senior year’s. I will continue to dance for the Apollo Eaglettes and represent Apollo! Currently, I have 16 college credits and the teachers at Apollo have been wonderful in making my future a success! Catherine Schneider
I attended Apollo High School From 2015-2019. The school is great with diversity and accepts everyone. One of the best things you'll ever see at any high school is how great students react/ respond to the students that have different needs then us. I personally have a cousin with autism who attends there in their program and I know that she is fully taken care of not just from the teachers but also the other students. The teachers there accept every student and create relationships with them that a lot of people would never try to do and go out of their way to make sure their students are doing well, whether it is with their schooling or jobs, or something that could help them with something in the near future. I am proud to have been apart of the eagle family. But the thing about being apart of the eagle family once is that you're always part of the eagle family, even after you leave.
