Excellent school for my child. They have a great transition infrastructure for incoming 6th graders that really helped my son integrate into middle school life. He is flourishing. Bonus is shared access to grassy fields at rec center next door and on campus courtyard garden with vegetables and chickens.
Ms Momjian is an amazing teacher. She has a way of keeping students engaged, interested and well behaved! She also has a special touch with incoming 6th graders, making them feel safe and welcome. My son agrees!
Thank you Ms Momjian!
Im in the 7th grade and am loving it. All these reviews on how its a bad school thats really easy are completely untrue. I admit sixth grade was pretty easy but once you get to seventh grade classes are harder, more is expected, and teachers challenge you. I have an amazing history teacher that really gets me interested. The electives are amazing, and our plays and concerts are really fun to watch. We also have a student council, science fairs, activity days where you get to pick an activity you want to do like ice skating, going to see a movie, going to the mall, the giants game, and etc and you get to do it for the whole day. Our electives are band, orchestra, art, drama, film, guitar, creative writing and choir but in the sixth grade you can either pick band, orchestra, or art rotation which is a program where every twelve weeks you switch between choir, art, and drama so that you get to sample each one of those and pick what you want in the seventh grade.
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.
A.P Giannini ROCKS! It's the Best School Ever! A.P Giannini School has excellent teahers, amazing temwork, strong principal, school leadership, and challenging academic programs. There is activity day where sctudents could and may choose their activity, like ice skating, rock climbing, bicycling, and even to the Giants' Game. It's the best. I love A.P Giannini! The mascot of A.P Giannini is the JAGUARS! The P.E programs are amazing! The P.E teachers have amazing talent. Go Jaguars! I love A.P Giannini! I am currently a sixth grader at A.P Giannini! My older brother is also currently an eight gader! A.P Giannini trained my brother to have excellent and superior math academic skills. The teachers and principal are all nice. A.P Giannini is a loving communtiy for everyone to learn and have fun! There is no bullying and A.P is the best middle school in the whole California District! Go, Jaguars! -A student And this year Graduation was different but i completely learned alot . I'd love to thank the teachers & staff for being so supportive . Go Jags !
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?
