Aptos Junior High School Reviews

Though Aptos Junior High was the only school of its kind that I ever attended, I get the impression that the opportunities available to the seventh and eighth graders there are average -- nothing super special, but not obviously deficient, either.
Sports, similar to the local high school (Aptos), are the main extracurricular. The programs available are very relaxed; participating in junior high sports is a great way for students to figure out their interests before they enter the more rigorous high school programs.
Like the majority of schools, AJHS has a good mix of stellar, poor, and okay teachers. If students are willing to work and study and are curious, they should do just fine.
Lastly, I always felt safe at AJHS. I don't remember any pointed instances of constant bullying.

Overall I had a good experience at Aptos Junior, the faculty were excellent and all of my teachers were really into my education.
Math teacher was a PE teacher having to teach math. Terrible..learned nothing. Teacher never even looked at homework papers.
