The principal, one of the vice principals and a handful of teachers have made it impossible to give this school a good rating. The irresponsibility have been mind blowing and have caused a terrible experience.
Apollo is a great school with a solid foundation. PTA and local neighborhood parental involvement make it an excellent choice. The band program is excellent and has great leadership from Elementary all the way through Berkner.
Apollo Junior High School - My son attends this school. He loves it and I could not be happier. The teachers make themselves available if the kids need extra help. The communication with the parents is also excellent....
If your child has a handicap or is disabled dont expect help at this school. They will give you the run around. My daughter attended this school for two years. I'd rather be handed a sentence in hell for two years then to go that again. The principal and school leadership is terrible. They only recognize your child for the bad and never the good. No rewards only punishment. The only positive is some of the teachers. They truly care about their students and will work with parents the best they can. This doesnt apply to all teachers. Some of them are plain terrible and are on power trips. So I'd say its a mixed bag. Thats why I rated the teachers at a 3.
