I LOVE this school. My son struggled in DC schools. I was starting to think all hope was lost until he started Achievement Prep .
This is My Sons First year with this School, and its only been 4 days and His Teachers are soo focused on the students , I love it, My Son comes home singing about how hes on the way to college and thats no Doubt..No Doubt! I Hope this school continues to lead out children in the right direction it does take a village to raise a child, Glad to see his Teachers have joined in !
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.
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 love my son's new school because they push him to want more i tell my children they can do anything and that the sky is the limt you can do anything you put your mind to dream big and never look back they teach him that you dont have to be a product of your enviroment
They teach their scholars that no goal is unreachable and with a good education, the sky is the limit!
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!
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.
My grandson's thirst for knowledge has grown tremendously since attending Achievement Preparatory Academy. He absolutely loves the school and that makes me love it too!
