The use of iPads overshadows real education. The students use the iPads for things like games, cheating, and multiple assignments making iMovie trailers and slideshows with very little content. My kids and their friends complain about the iPads because it's hard to do math and other homework on them and lots of times online resources don't work and they wish they could just use a textbook for all subjects and regular paper especially for math. No matter how many parents complain, school just says that there are no problems at all with iPads and they are part of what makes our school better than anyone else. Education should be more balanced.

This school is average school with above average resources. Some of the teachers show racial favoritism. If parents and kids voice opinion they will be met with consequences. Our kid who is bright became unhappy.

Visiting this school during a girls' volleyball game and their rude and disrespectful behavior (not only to the other team but to the parents of the other team) was shocking and I caught it all on tape. Mostly disappointed in how the coach encouraged it. Lack of good sportsmanship said a lot about their lack of integrity. What good is a school that manufactures good tests scores but not good people. I am glad my kids do not attend this school and I would not want them influenced by this environment.

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.
