I want to address the negative reviews from the 2 supposablty students who accuse APA of the most pro posteriors accusations and falasies. First I go to the school all the time and I have never witnesses teacher being cruel to the students. I have a feeling the two students that felt the need to complain and make false accusations is because they probably were asked to leave our APA. If the parents aren't involved or the child is a bully and is disrespectful to the other students and teachers and this behavior does not stop , APA and APA parents feel like the children would be better else where. Our school is 99.9 percent of students and teachers and parents who are fully dedicated to service, helping others, education and collage perpetration. If students who like to bully, tease and make fun of other stundents., well they do not belong at APA. The parents and teachers here give everything they have to give our children and students balance, security, social tools and academic habits that will benefit them for the rest of our students lives. I wonder if the parents of the kids last reviews were aware of their accusations.

APA is a stellar school. My 5th grader has been at a different school every year due to moves and placements in gifted programs, and APA is hands-down the best school he has ever attended. I love the break out groups that cater to each child's needs and abilities. It requires a lot of parental involvement and is academically very rigorous, so it may not be for everyone, but if you want your child to get a real education (which is shockingly hard to find in my experience!), APA is the place for you. We love it!

APA is the worst school I have ever been to in my life. Having been a student I know how little the teachers care for the students, giving us less than 10 min of lunch on some days, giving kids so much homework that they will be doing homework until after 9 pm, and punishing us with making us go to school on a Saturday if you don't do well enough. APA will teach you the same stuff that all the other schools teach you, while yelling and lecturing you at the same time. The teachers don't care, the homework is insane, and the work they expect you to do in order to get a C average is over the top tyrannical. If you miss so much as one day they will make you do all the homework you missed and the homework that you get normally with the time limit of one day. Do not send your kids here, If you do they will never be happy until school is out. And when summer finally gets here they will give you TWO summer packets with enough problems in them to make you spend three hours a day trying to get it done. The school wont give your children very much homework until seventh grade, after that they will make your child look like a pack horse until you gradate. Do not send your children here.

As a former student at this school, I am shocked at how well this school is viewed by parents. I went to this school for 6 years. I did well, I got smarter. The disciplinary actions taken by teachers were entirely unrealistic, but I dealt with that. This year, I transfered to a different school, and I realized how terrible APA really is. Most teachers are unqualified. Disciplinary actions range from losing lunchtime to being sent home. Many teachers there, especially elementary teachers, believe in a "5 minute lunchtime". They teach through lunchtime and then tell the kids, "Well, it's your fault you only have 5 minutes to eat". Teachers are derogatory and cruel. My cousin, who is visually impaired, had a 3rd grade teacher who swore at him and called him names to get his attention. That teacher is now a dictator, I mean director, at this school. This school teaches kids information by forcing it down their throats. I now do competitive math and seek to complete in an international competition in the next 2 years. Had I stayed at this school, I would have never had the time or motivation to learn as much as I need to on my own to do this. This school is really terrible

I am happy we were able to prepare our student so well that he/she is able to participate in math contests! Our teachers are qualified and are required to meet the same requirements as teachers at all other public schools in Utah. We have no record of any teacher swearing at a disabled child and we invite anyone with information on that issue to bring it to our attention as we will address it immediately, just as we work to address any issue that arises.

I could not feel more blessed to have found APA and have my child attend! From the attention to character building, to the rigorous academics, to instilling pride in our American history, to the delight over parent involvement--this school is extraordinary!! I feel like we're in a loving family and I know they have my child's back when it comes to issues that may arise with peers or schoolwork. They want their students to truly be their BEST selves! They instill confidence with encouragement! I cannot stop bragging about APA!

We have had a really good experience with our kids at APA. We have been with APA since the day they opened their first school. My 8th grade daughter was hesitant to leave her neighborhood jr high school. She came home after the first day and announced that she never wanted to go back to her old school. She had a marvelous time. She was able to fill in some academic gaps that come from being socially promoted. Our first grader, that year, was able to finally learn at the pace that he was able, as opposed to being forced to learn at the pace of the slowest student in the class. He was challenged at every grade and is now thriving as a Junior in our nearby high school. Our last child started at APA in kindergarten. She received the help she needed in smaller break out groups, particularly Math. We are sad that they have expanded so quickly. It seems like they are trying to be everything to everybody, and sometimes the students pay the price for the ensuing chaos. It's true, there are lots of family members hired, but that hasn't particularly affected my kids. It's not for everyone, but that is the beauty of school choice! We love APA.

My 6th grade daughter just started at APA and its been 4 weeks and I see a complete turn around in her where school and grades are concerned. She loves her school and I love that she is learning so much more because of the way they teach and I never fight with her over homework. She is also learning manners and music, playing an instrument is required for 6th graders, which is a great plus for me! I love this school and would recommend it!

I have to completely agree with the former teacher that posted. I worked at APA, but quit because of all the same reasons mentioned. The administration (particularly the director) is narrow-minded, plays favorites, and anyone who disagrees is run out of town. Hopefully, by cleaning house and truly adhering to their ideals there may be hope for APA...but with the current administration, that will never happen.

American Preparatory Academy of Draper. All four of my children have attended this charter school, my two youngest beginning in the elementary and the older two in the junior high. It is definitely rigorous academically. I love the atmosphere. I have always had a good rapport with the teachers who are genuinely interested in teaching your children. I have not had a problem with communication with the administration or the front desk. I love the uniforms and the ambassador program in the Junior High is amazing. There are always pros and cons to whatever school you have your child go to, but here, the pros far outweigh any cons. We have found this school to be a good fit for our family.

APA is incredible! My son started kindergarten on a 3rd grade reading level and because of their ability-based groups, was able to keep learning at his own pace. It has been wonderful for my kids to be with different groups teachers and help them find not just one adult they feel comfortable with, but many. The family atmosphere at APA exists because so many parents volunteer at the school and get to know all of the kids. Once the students become immersed in the Ambassador character development program they learn every skill necessary to be successful in the professional/ social world. I've personally seen many otherwise shy children blossom thought this program. APA's academic rigor is an excellent segue to prepare students for high school and college. Many students that move to traditional public high school following APA find it to be a "cake walk." APA graduates also have an opportunity to enter 10th grade with AP credits, which is unusual. The Administration is consistent and focused. They do not run the school based on politics, trends, or what certain families want. All students have the same opportunities and are treated equally. We love APA! We are APA!

My son was placed on an IEP in 3rd grade in a public neighborhood school. I remember attending his first IEP meeting thinking it would be great if all students could be given the individual attention my son was getting. When we moved and began attending American Preparatory Academy, I was so impressed that they have found a way to do that. APA teaches students in small "break out" groups in math, reading, and language. This means, for example, that every 1st grade student attends math at the same time, but will receive specialized, small group instruction at the academic level appropriate for them. Advanced students are able to be challenged and students who are struggling are able to receive the instruction and support they need (without feeling discouraged or stigmatized). APA's character program helps teach students to "build" their friends, families, and communities. In my experience, APA always tries to do "what's best for kids".

My son has been going to American Preparatory Academy in Draper for two years now and I couldn't be happier! He has grown both socially and academically! When he's at school I can relax, knowing he's in a safe, protected environment and that he's being taught by some of the best teachers in the state. Their curriculum is rigorous, challenging, and thorough. I particularly enjoy the Ambassador Program that is implemented in the upper grades. I would highly recommend this school to any and all parents!

The teachers are awesome. The education is 1st rate. The administration of the school is a mess. You will love every time your kids walk in the door and hate every time you have to walk in the door.

APA has amazing teachers who consistently go above and beyond. A lot is required of the teaching staff and they continually put forth a tremendous amount of energy and effort to educate their students. Yes, you will find nepotism at APA, but who can say that is a bad thing? The family connections found at the school is not to the demise of the student body, so who cares if relatives work at the school. The student body for the most part is well behaved and the amount of volunteer hours spent at the school is encouraging and admiral. You will not find a perfect school, each comes with pros and cons. I can say that my eight year association with APA has far more pros than cons.

APA is sooo amazing! They have high expectations for students and parents academically and behaviorally and it makes us all better in every way! They work sooo hard to help every single child be successful! All my children continually amaze me with what they know and how well disciplined they are becoming. Thank you, APA!

APA is a great school in many respects. I appreciate the direct instruction method and the teachers are almost in every instance better than what I've found in the public schools. The only problem with APA is the self serving philosophy of the school's directors and administrative staff. Nepotism is rampant. Learn an administrator's last name and you'll be sure to find others with the same name working at the school. While you have to beg your way into and through the school you can be sure those running the school give themselves and their kids every advantage they require you to grovel for. I am sure the reasons the school was started were noble but it seems clear they've lost their way. For your child APA is a much better school than your public school choice but be prepared to bow down. I've waited until my youngest is finishing at APA to post this because I truly feel if those at APA knew my opinion and identity they would find a way to dismiss my child to get back at me. If you can't handle being treated like a second class citizen look elsewhere.

To those that put 1 star reviews I would be careful. APA has had my comments removed before (that is why they have such good reviews here) I had 4 children that went to school there 3 years ago. They attended for approx 3 years. They were very difficult with my son and unwilling to work with him. They told me that APA was a rigorous school and that not everyone can keep up, and that he did not belong there. (It turns out my son has Aspergers, he is now in high school, has a 3.5 gpa and will be graduating a year early) Another teacher at APA told my daughter that she would never be able to get into college, let alone graduate from high school because of her spelling (That same daughter graduated at 16 and attends college on a full scholarship) Although this is a public school, paid for with public tax dollars if your child or children are not making the school's scores look good, they try to make you and your child feel uncomfortable. Stay away!

American Preparatory Academy-Draper is an outstanding public charter school. Our child, who is on an IEP, has been successful due to challenging curriculum, intelligent, dedicated teachers, and consistent policies. Successful students at this school MUST have a parent who embraces the school mission - academic achievement and good character. Successful students do NOT have to be high achievers if parents do their part by providing ample time each day for studying and homework. My own child is on an IEP and thrives. Can the parent who vengefully awarded APA a one-star rating defend his or her arguments? He or she already failed to mention that APA-Draper's CRT and DWA scores are public record and proudly among the best in the state. APA-Draper places a huge emphasis on research-verified academic programs, and every child has the opportunity to excel. This parent also claims that resources were denied to his/her child, which is puzzling because APA has services available for each student who qualifies. The school also offers free after-school tutoring for any student who needs extra help. Hopefully, the parent who complained will take a more active role in their child's success.

Unless you have an over achiever, I wouldn't recommend sending your child to APA. They have their own cookie-cutter way of doing things and if your child does not conform to it, they do everything they can to make the student not want to come back. They pride themselves on embarrassing the students in front of everyone else. My child would rather pee his pants in class then be embarrassed by everyone when he had to go. When I talked to APA about getting my son some resource help, they said that it's not their responsibility and that we'd have to do that on our own. When a parent has a comment or complaint, it's either ignored or followed with "That's the builder way!" When a teacher wants to help a student that is struggling with "the builder way", he/she is either threatened with being fired or the student is taken out of his/her class. When a student doesn't do exactly what the school expects, they are called "Destroyers" in front of all their classmates. My son felt bullied by the kids at APA because part of the APA way is to have the excelling students manage the struggling students. These are 1st grade students managing 1st grade students! Not what I want for my child.
