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.

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.
There are a very wide variety of options when it comes to extracurricular activities. It ranges from marching band, to soccer,to football,to poetry club, to FFA, to BPA, to ROTC. Students of all different races with all different interests are able to participate in something that reflects who they are and make friends with people who the same interests. If anyone feels alone or bored, participating in any of these activities and sports helps. Many students get involved in these extracurriculars and the participation is growing. Also, the administration supports every single one. Teachers work with you in order to maintain sports and activities as well as school. Administration rule is if a student is below a C they cannot participate in any extracurricular activities which shows they value education over sports/activities. Overall, Appoquinimink high school is excellent in the area of extracurricular activities.
