The more difficult coursework you take, the better the learning enviorment. Sticking to AP and Honors allowed me to learn from dedicated teachers that would show up at 4am or 6pm to help students. All the upper-level coursework provided me with 21 college credits. The behavior and enviorment however, in CP classes were horrendous; often dangerous activities would ensue- teachers refused to care if their students were CP. Though those students can find good role models in clubs and sports. The school has a great sports program where everyone feels like a family. Performing arts at Appo high reguarly earned gold trophies around the eastern sea board. Leaders from our school have the ability to be supported from around the country for their work.

Appo is definitely a good school, we have quite a few really good teachers, and they make sure that we reach our goals, and are successful in class. However, some teachers either can’t teach, don’t know the subject they’re teaching or just give up on trying to get people who don’t care, to pay attention. Which is distracting to the rest of the class, people try to learn and actually care and the other students don’t care and it messes everyone else up because teachers don’t do anything to help or get them to be quiet. Over all, Appo staff and admin are very nice people and you can always ask them for help.
Even though Appoquinimink High School has a diverse amount of different social groups, the students get along very well. It has a light-hearted atmosphere where no one feels unwelcome. There is a sport or club or activity for almost everyone; it brings the social groups together. The majority of the teachers are very fun and hard-working. They challenge the students but not to a point where everyone is overwhelmed. I only wish there were more time in-between classes to stop at lockers.
