  • Recommended March 15, 2013 - My special needs children have attended this school for four years. The teachers are very accessable and the children learn at their own pace. Class sizes are small. My children are learning sign language as part of the curriculum. I love the after school clubs, art and gardening and video club. The children are protected from bullying. I am very happy with this school and recommend it. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended June 20, 2012 - The teachers and staff are amazing! It feels like a close knit community where everybody knows your name. My step-son excelled once he transferred from public school, since being able to participate in basketball it has opened up a new world for him, something he would never have been able to do in the public sector. Thank you APA you changed our lives - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 01, 2012 - Loving and caring atmosphere. Small class sizes, individualized attention, special needs inclusion program and therapy provided in school. Great communication with teachers via email or renweb program where your child''s grades, HW, etc is posted. Would highly recommend. Great education without the stress of bullying, drugs, or FCAT''s!! :) - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 19, 2012 - Drug-free and Bully-Free environment. Small teacher/student ratios and inclusion program for Special Needs Students. My son has been at APA for 3 years now and loves it. He is learning and receiving his individualized attention and therapies. Principal has open-door policy for parents to communicate with her and you do not need to wait a month for a meeting. Very happy with the school and will highly recommend!!! 10 Stars ********** - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 10, 2012 - Excellent parent/teacher communication. Drug free, Bully Free school. My Special Needs son is very happy.

His grades and self-esteem have improved dramatically since pulling him out of public school and into American Preparatory. - Posted by Parent
