APA is a great school as long as you can tolerate Dr Williams is what I was told before enrolling my child. Dr Williams is at times aggressive if you challenge her. She will approach you and inquiry about why you are dropping your student off late or picking them up early, even if other parents are around. All of this is personally intrusive. Additionally, there isn't a written policy stating you can not check your student out unless she finds the reason appropriate. Lastly, the board for the charter and school are intertwined. There is no immediate recourse when you have an issue with Dr Williams. You can not go to the TEA website and get contact information for the board members, you can only leave a message with...Dr Williams. Dr Williams is the principle and superintendent and her husband is the dean of students. Our government has better checks and balances than this school.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

Dr Williams approach when interacting with parents is not effective and often times unprofessional. She will confront parents in front of other parents. She has even sent flyers home stating what "appropriate attire" for parents was for school programs.


Develops character: Agree

I agree they instill these traits, however, not all of the faculty exhibit these traits. Dr Williams only shows parents respect when they "do what they are told."

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Compared to other schools we have attended, APA gives out a lot. However, I find the work beneficial.



- a
Excellent school! Teachers work very hard to help the students. They stay until 5:00pm to provide help to students who need it. The school also provides opportunities for students to travel out-of-state and out-of-country, thus, giving them a different perspective, making them more aware of what is happening outside Texas.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Integrity and a moral code must be developed for sucess to occur in any endeavor.

As a teacher at Ambassadors Preparatory I can honestly say that we have a single-minded emphasis on academic excellence. Any student or parent will find that if one's desire is to improve and grow in the 21st century skills necessary as a contemporary citizen of the world APA is the place to be.



- a
The teachers communicate with the parents in all mediums possible to be able to address the needs and strengths of the students. The Superintendent is always ready to attend to the needs of the students and the parents!!


Develops character: Agree

I have seen nothing but the greatest consideration for the quality of the students being produced by APA. The students appear to be well-behaved and attentive to their instructors. The students show respect for their teachers and seem quite engaged in their studies which encompasses a wide range of relevant subjects besides the basics.



- a
I'll be teaching Spanish and Art there. The campus is wonderful and the staff very friendly and professional. I am looking forward to meeting every student and working with the other teachers to enrich their lives.
