I have 2 children at Apple Tree that started in pre-k and stayed through 8th grade. One is now a freshman at Auburn University and thriving in the engineering school. Her friends that also attended Apple Tree are at NYU and Yale. My other child is currently in 8th grade and is doing great. The school uses the SAT standardized test. Both children scored well above the median scores and are at a level 2 years ahead of their grade. This is a direct reflection on the school administration and the teachers. I spoke to the administration office recently at Archbishop McCarthy High School and I was told they look forward to accepting Apple Tree students as they always score high on the Catholic High School Entrance Exam.

This school has set my son up to fail. They give you many chances to get good grades and when my son went to High School teachers gave him what he earned on the 1st time. Apple Tree does not do well to set kids to succeed. My child told me once he had as many as 3 times to pass an assignment. Where in life do we get that many times to pass? If you want to have your child learn to succeed on the 1st time do not send your child to school at Apple Tree. The grades are unusually high! You think they are doing good with the grades but I guess with many chances they should be right. The main yearly test in the school to see where the kids are is very old and is not counted in any other schools. Its obsolete. This school is also very small and does not help children learn to be around many kids, it will be harder for them later on. Had I known what I know now I would change things and that is why I am writing this review.

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




- a
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
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.
