This is a great school. I had fun for all three years I spent at APG. There is no bullying at all; and if there is, it gets reported and something gets done about it. I felt welcome there and everybody was nice. I had some great teachers at APG. I learned a lot and the teachers were able to keep my attention. I had good grades for all 3 years. If you go to APG, you won't regret it.

I have a daughter who is in the 6th grade this year. She adjusted to AP Giannini Middle school without any problems and that is due to all who are involved from the teachers, principal, staff and parents. Any worries or doubts I had before she started going to the school has gone away. I'm grateful to the school for making my daughter feel not only comfortable but safe!

I absolutely loved this school. I'm about to graduate from APG and I'm so sad that i have to leave! I met so many people there and i became close friends with them. The teachers are so nice! They take their time to help you and other students, along with making sure you have a good education. At A.P.G we didn't get to go to Washington D.C. but there's so many more other activities that A.P.G. provides. The electives are really good too! I was in Orchestra, and yes, i did go through a few teachers, but it was really fun being there. There are some cons, but there are also pros. Not everything can be judged by other peoples perspective. The best way to actually get the scoop and know what actually happens is to go there yourself and see how it is! (:

My son is about to graduate from A.P. Giannini. Our experience has been nothing less than spectacular. His teachers are a group of inspired educators who love what they do. A Fantastic bunch....Miss Christ, Mr. Lie, Mr. Talsky, Miss Kramling, Mr. Johnson, Miss Oliver..... the list is long. I could have named many many more. They each made my son feel capable and interested. His counselor, Miss Sendejo helped him change easily from a class that he felt wasn't a good match for him. My son has said things like "I never liked history before having Mr. Lie and Mr Talsky, they make it interesting" He is stuggling in Algebra 2 a bit now, and his teacher comes in in her spare time before school and tutors the kids who need it! Unbelievable. I felt comforted when he started that they keep all of the sixth graders separate, and make them take an intro course to each elective so that when they return as seventh graders they know what they enjoyed most and can spend a full year focused on it. The school also has a fully funded (though impacted) after school program run by Sunset Beacon. Thank you A.P. for the great experience! I look forward to having my daughter attend in a year.

The Police is at the school almost everyday. Students walk the halls instead of being in class. The school gym smells like dead animals. The boy's and girl's bathrooms are not cleaned everyday. Some of the teacher's and Principal cannot handle the student's. The Principal has no leadership skills. The principal has $135,000.00 in the Trust Fund and she will not use it for teacher's instead she uses it for people she like. She spent $34,000.00 to keep a full-time counselor instead of a teacher. What kind of leadership is that? There is 1,200 students at A.P. Giannini and I never see any parents until parent teacher conference week. How many parents are there everyday or once a week?

obviously the previously posted parent is not going to the PTA meetings. They spent an entire PTA going over the GATE program and they sent out information in the Wednesday envelopes. Read your Wednesday envelope. The Honors program doesn't start until 7th grade, but they do separate the kids into different levels based on whether they were GATE identified from elementary school. I do have to agree that there is considerable effort on the part of the staff to control the trouble-makers, but that's were the effort should be spent. The trouble-makers are the ones causing the problems. The music program is amazing. Mr. Richards, the orchestra teacher is amazing too.

As a parent, I have been immensely disappointed in this school. My son is in the 6th grade, and they have provided no honors classes, no GATE instruction, or anything to help the more advanced students. All the effort I see is spent on the trouble-makers, and believe me there are many. It is not at all the community school that the principal led us to believe, just stand outside at dismissal one day and you will see the out of control kids. Its really a shame b/c apparently this used to be a good school. I still gave it three stars because of the amazing band teacher, Ms. Whitney. They are lucky to have her.

I just graduated A.P. Giannini this June, I now am currently attending Lowell High School. I loved my teachers (To name a few: Ms. Stevens in social studies, science and english; Ms. Hanna in science; Mr. Richards in orchestra; Ms. Erickson in social studies and physical education.) Their teacher quality are the best and it completely helped me to prepare for Lowell.

I'm an eighth grader in AP Giannini right now. :) I must say I'm pretty proud of my school. XD The teachers are wonderful, and a lot of students get really good grades. My brother has graduated already, and he had a wonderful time. My relatives also went to AP, and they loved it. I hope to get the same experience as they do. The music teachers are the best! They are great at what they do and teach, even though I'm only in orchestra. But I basically love a lot of my teachers. :) They are always willing to help out and answer any questions you have. I find it an honor to be in AP, and so should your child!

I am a parent of an 8th grade boy graduating in June 2006. His 3-year experience at Gianinni (in the honors program) has been excellent. Most of his teachers have been really engaged, committed and caring. (A few to mention out of many: Mr. Talsky in social studies, Ms. Cawthon in science, Ms. Whitney in band.) Ms. Trook, the principal, is also a very caring person who seems to run a very tight ship. The counselors, who stay with a class throughout their 3-year career, do a pretty terriffic job, especially considering the number of kids they are responsible for. The music program is justly renowned. We consider ourselves lucky that our son ended up at 'A.P.'

My son graduated from AP this past school year. Due to parent involvement in the school AP has been able to continue to offer a wonderful music and art program to the students. The teachers are very involved in the success of the school.

Both of my children have attended A.P. and have done well. My eldest entered a private high school and was pretty well prepared academically. I was very happy to have my son attend as well and I believe his backround at AP will also prepare him for the academic rigors of a private high school.
