Open Quote I will never understand how a school that does not have GYM, ART, MUSIC, FOREIGN LANGUAGE or a SUITABLE PLAYGROUND is considered a Tier 1 school. Bullying is accepted and there is a revolving door for staff to come and go. The school also advertised diversity when I originally applied, however it is 100% Black. One of my child's teachers gave my child a Thank You note with Misspelled words...WTHeck!!! My goodness, they don't even teach the students how to write in cursive to prepare for high school. This school is a nightmare that is even infested with ROACHES!!! WARNING: During state wide testing, the students get a whole week and a half of HALF-DAYS...they gave parents a WEEK notice! The expectations of the students are higher than STAFF expectations! I could go on and on...Just beware!!! Close Quote

Open Quote 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. There is a longer school day to incorporate additional time for math and reading. Each scholar takes two math and two reading classes every day. 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. There is a half-day of school that lets out at 1:30pm on Wednesdays. The teachers are known as Platinum Teachers. Even though my experience has been Great at APrep, I have spoken to another parent who has not had as positive of an experience. My advice would be for you as the parent, who knows your child the best, to take time to visit the school, observe regular classes in session, and ask lots of questions. I have found my daughter's teachers to be accessible by email or phone and prompt to respond to my correspondence. 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. Unfortunately, I do not have any experience with the upper grades (7th to 8th) for comment. Also, right now, there are involved parents at the school but not a strong parents group. Hopefully that will change in the future. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
