Wonderful elementary school. The teachers are great and caring. They have enrichment classes after school in many different areas of interest. The academics part is way above par. They expect the children to be a grade level and a half above where they are. Help is needed if they are falling behind. The high school is great and challenging with one exception being math. My son had four different math teachers last year alone. This year they tried to fix the problem with hiring a teacher that had college level teaching experience. She however does not know how to teach to the younger students and it has been a struggle from day one. If they can fix this one issue with math then I would give them an A+
Awesome, caring, nurturing, holds students accountable! Supportive teachers, faculty and staff! Awesome school! Academics Plus is teaching more than just how to be a good student! Character education in important at AP as well as academics!
APCS is a great school with the best team of dedicated teachers. It has a small town community feel with K-12 on one campus. The kids are pushed academically, but also really treated as individuals. We are so glad we made the choice to enroll our children at APCS.
This is a GREAT school. Before teaching here, I was a substitute in several other districts. I am AMAZED at the hard work, dedication and long hours of the teachers here. They could ALL make a lot more money at a non-charter school, but they are dedicated to the children here. There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful these teachers are.
APCS really is an extraordinary place for children to learn and grow into who they will someday become. Our teachers here are highly qualified and offer rigorous instructional content, while at the same time taking a real interest in each child as an individual person. The administration is wonderful and works tirelessly to enable the staff to do what they do best. The number of students in each class is carefully monitored to ensure that each student is well equipped with the skills he/she needs to be successful in today's learning environment. Ours is a data driven campus and we work hard to safeguard that each student is achieving at his/her learning potential. Being challenged and being able to meet those challenges with a positive rate of success is what learning is all about. Challenges are met here at APCS in a caring and supportive way where children feel safe to take a risk and just be themselves. It's amazing to see students encourage and support each other's learning. Our students know that if they fall, as we all do in life, there are many who will help them get right back up again. Learning, growing, achieving our goals...Come learn with us at APCS, Maumelle, AR.
