When I was a 6th grader in this school, their grades were absolutely terrible. Then I realized that their teachers are amazing and you are going to learn if you put yourself up to it. Now that I am about to finish 8th grade in this school, I can tell you that going here was worth it. All of our scores went up, as a school and we are now as high as Lauffer Middle School. The school environment is really nice to get around it and their Library is the most amazing building ever. Apollo's Literacy Council has turned the whole meaning of a library inside out, having areas for everyone and encouraging reading.The staff are very friendly and care about the kids and their learning. There is also drastic measures for any bad behavior so the school is pretty much safe. To conclude, my 3 years in Apollo have been an amazing learning experience.
