It is a terrible school with terrible teachers. The principal is a tired old hag that is mean to kids and let's not forget about parents. The communication between teachers and parents is terrible. The communication between the teachers and students is also one of the worst I have ever seen. The campus is falling apart on itself. Don't enroll your kids here if you want the best for them. - a past 8th grade graduate

Horrible Communication from the Administrative staff and teachers. It was always hard to reach out to my child's teacher if I had any questions.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
There are a lot of new teachers that are learning as they are teaching the children. Some teachers are also just moms, without proper credentials.

I had many bad experiences at Apple Tree. The principal is not a nice lady. She is older and is very bitter and mean to the kids not to mention parents. A lot of the good teachers have all left because of the principal which leaves new teachers in the school. This school is also crumbling, shabby and worn out. The education is also not what it used to be with all the new teachers. I moved my child out of Apple Tree and am very happy to have more experienced, qualified teachers educating my child.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
Apple Tree teachers really are amazing. They teach my daughter so much during the day while she is with them. I am always so impressed at how much she knows compared to other her same age. The teachers are also so caring and sweet with my daughter. She loves being at school and is always wanting to stay at school.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
My daughter gets minimal homework but she is learning at 1-2 grade levels ahead of her. I am so impressed at how much this school teaches during the day without sending too much homework for us parents to do. The teachers do a great job with my daughter!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
Apple Tree teaches students to treat each other with respect. They also do a great job of teaching the students to be true to themselves and never to dishonor there own values. They help build each students confidence and develop into there own personalities.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
I am pleasantly pleased with the commitment of the teachers at Apple Tree. They truly want the best for my children and are caring enough to keep me informed.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Homework is given as a review of the day's work. Students are not bombarded with work assignments, but are assigned meaningful tasks!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
Students are well equipped through the academic curriculum and the patience and understanding of the teachers through Montessori strategies, to understand and demonstrate honesty, integrity, and fairness in a challenging society. I have yet to hear of any violence at the school, hatred among students, or other negative character traits that has been witnessed at many other schools.
