As a student of Apollo-Ridge High School, I feel the school prepares you for your future, and all the teachers always are ready to help you. Once in awhile there is conflict betwren students, but all of the staff handle it the best they can. Overall, I really do love my school, and feel it is a very good environment for students, and especially ones that want to improve and look to their futures. Also we do have a really nice theater program, and student envolvement in the school.

Apollo-Ridge is a nice school district, though there a few things that could stand to change. As an alumni of the school district, I know how some students can feel about the school. There isn't an equal opportunity for students to gain knowledge of all subjects. The arts are highly under-appreciated, while the sciences and sports are held above all. I feel as though everything needs to be leveled and more opportunities for students across the board to be represented.
I had a great experience at Apollo-Ridge. I created lifelong friends from having such small class sizes. I know that I can reconnect with teachers from high school if needed in the future, and they have prepared me properly for higher education.
