All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Great school, like the teachers and the principal. School process is very organized, good communication with the parents. Never had any issues as a parent. I do agree though with the other parent regarding iPads - they are not helpful, they take away focus from learning, too much time spent on iTunes and games.

My school is Aptakisic Junior High School and they help students learn and have fun. We have our own iPads to help us. These are very useful and it is easy to communicate and get work to teachers.

School building is Next to major power lines which I find extremely absurd. Cross-country practice/meets happens right under power lines. I can't believe district didn't try to acquire lands during real estate down-turn to build a new building elsewhere. Kids do like school and teachers look friendly. After-school activity/club variety lucking compare to nearby districts. And after-school activity bus seems to take forever. They gave kids IPADs with learning in mind and made them take those home and allowed kids install non-violent games on that device. If I wanted to attach my kid to more electronic devices, I would have bought one myself. I am all pro-technology learning but sending those home with kids is unnecessary step. Also, school should probably start green biking initiative like other nearby districts, adding volunteers to monitor major intersections nearby, not just the one across from school.

Its very small and all the teachers are mean. They are not very good at educating. They need to work on it.

Teachers here were very rude and most of them lacked the ability to teach. Almost all of these teachers work here due to connections (parents worked here, etc.). They need to hire some real educators.
