There are grades missing for weeks. Teachers grade randomly, to a point where 3-6 weeks of grades are missing in some cases. This is NOT allowed in public, charter, or solid private schools. (Oh..but I can't say anything.."Why are we here?"). Some teachers grade daily only for a week, like "bringing supplies," but ignore the rest of the quarter. So if a child missed the supplies only ONE day, the grades will be unfairly affected. Some grade on the same weaknesses, twice or up to three times; they just fall under different titles. The sad thing is that they don't see how this is wrong, nor they understand "bias/unfair grading." Oh..but wait, we have to be grateful because they care and love our children, because no one else would. When asked about grades, they mention how all of the children have issues, or how your child still doing great!. It's about principle. If it's not allowed for regular students, it shouldn't be allowed with our children. When provided with just a day to study for major tests, like midterms (moving the pre-assigned dates) or not given a previous notice, you can't say anything. "It wouldn't matter anyway...your child has a disability." That is the message that is being sent. My child has weaknesses, but he is brilliant and has proven to be so with thorough, fair, and understanding teachers in this same school.

Some of the teachers at this school do not care for certain children. They lie when you ask for clarification and you have no choice, as a parent, to stay quiet. They don't want or accept a parent communicating with them. Many teachers/staff don't seem to be certified or have an understanding of how grading works. There are some teachers who are really good, like Mr. Francis and Ms. Gonzalez. Your child will fall behind, and you can't do anything about it.


Supports LD students: Neutral

They state that they provide "differentiated" instruction, but some teachers do not know what that means. Providing longer times on assignment or curving is not differentiated instruction.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Teachers need training on how to effectively grade.

Amount of homework: Disagree

They don't post HW on Renweb as it says on the website. Some of this kids struggle remembering assignments, but no one cares to assist them.

I'm a parent of a struggling Child with Attention Deficit disorder. They work in smaller groups and treat them like family. I love it. His grades are fantastic and the Athletics department help him a lot!

As a former teacher at American Prep Academy, I can say that it was one of the best teaching experiences I've had. My co-workers were such a team and we all worked together to develop the 'whole' child.

APA Academy has helped my children succeed immensely in the lats 2 years. It has a great environment, small classes and great curriculum. The have Autism and ADD. Also American Preparatory Academy is a Fully Accredited School by the AISF. Thas is a plus.

One of my kids have ADD. His grades @ the public system were at floor levels. His behaviour was getting affected too. As soon as he got into APA his grades were skyrocketing. The teacher student ration is 10 to 1 or less. He is learning at his own pace and he is happy. No behaviour incidents. Thank you APA

American Preparatory School is a School for children that are running behind. Kids that the Public System forgot,. My Child is a 504 student and the public system did NOTHING to help him. As soon as he entered the school he felt welcome and understood that he was not the only child in the world with difficulties in learning. Thanks to American Preparatory Academy he started liking to go to school again.
