Achievement Preparatory Academy is an excellent school, which invests in children without excuse. They offer multiple means of supporting your child to reach their full potential when they are not quite on grade level. They hold parents accountable which fosters a safer learning environment. I appreciate the consistency of the teachers and staff. They expect respect and are seen giving respect regularly to our children.

I am writing about this school because I want to know what my kids are doing and how they are doing,this school informs the parent on everything. I love that. We moved to this area this year I was nervous my kids would not fit in but the teachers get ever child on the same page with the week preparation before school starts. The teachers r real dedicated and focused on the children.

AP is a great school that continually strives to be better and better. The teaching staff is very dedicated and committed to seeing the scholars do well and succeed in life. At times I forget I am talking to my daughter s teacher, if feels like I am talking to a family friend. My only real complaint is that there is no AP high school.

This ia a Great school. My son has been enrolled here for 2 yrs now. He has learned so much. Some things that should improve within the school are after school activities. I don't feel as though they have enough. Other then that I feel that APA is a wonderful school

Acheivement prep is by far the best school experience I've had as a parent in DC! My 6year old is now reading on a second grade level with help from acheivement prep! The family atmosphere is conducive to the learning experience. I wouldn't take my child from APA for any reason!

I am a parent of a 5th grader at Achievement Preparatory Academy. I have been extremely happy with my daughter's progress at the school. She has improved in leaps and bounds in both Reading and Math. This school sets high academic standards for all of its scholars. It provides extra supports for the scholars such as an academic support specialist (normally known as the Special Education Coordinator), a tutoring class known as "Results" for scholars who may require a little extra support in a subject matter, and Saturday Academy for scholars who may be struggling in a subject matter. The school works to prepare each scholar for success in the real world by providing a very structured program to minimize behavioral issues and to provide an environment that will allow each scholar to focus on learning. There is a 0% tolerance for BULLYING! Uniforms are required. Please do not judge this school by its outward appearance or you may miss a diamond in disguise. Judge it by the substance of its program and you will be setting the stage for a bright future for your scholar. Parents are involved at the school but there is not a strong parents group.

I have a son that attends this school. Academically, he is being taught really well and is being pushed, because he gets bored pretty easily. However, there are some major issues, in my humble opinion. Until this year, the building co-housed a high school and there were some violence issues. Also, the school day is extremely long for such young students. My son complains about the school lunch and the quality of food. There are no organized sports for students in the lower grades. Achievement Prep is given a rating of 10 in the area of diversity. However the student population is 100% African American. That is NOT diversity and this website should not measure it as such. That is a very homogenous student population that cannot teach the students how to deal with the world's population, a population this school says that their students will be ready for.

Achievement Prep PCS is the best! The academic structure challenges every student to reach their goals of attending any four year college of their choice. The teachers are called 'Plantinum' for a reason, they take the time to acknowledge each scholars' need for growth. Let's not mention the scholars are amazing, they know what they have to do to stand out and be the best!

Each and every scholar can excel at Achievement Prep Academy


Posted September 23, 2009

APA is an awesome school with an excellent faculty and staff. The rigorous academic program, the longer school day and the no nonsense approach to discipline all aid in the success of the school. My child has excelled since attending Achievement Prepartory Academy. He loves learning and that was not always the case.

Achievement Prep is a school dedicated to instill in its scholars not only the motivation to attend and successfully complete college but the skills and confidence to do so. The administration and staff are hard-working nurturing models for their scholars, and they insist that learning be carried out in an atmosphere of safety, mutual respect and boundless enthusiasm.

About the tests


The DC school classification system includes multiple measures to evaluate performance and student growth. The possible classifications, from highest to lowest, are Reward, Rising, Developing, Focus and Priority. These measures include the DC CAS, annual growth, graduation rates, attendance rates and participation rates. Under the system, required under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), each school is given a School Index Score based on the performance of its students. Schools receive different levels of support, resources, flexibility and monitoring based on their classification.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
