I am a proud APA mom! My son started APA in 6th grade. He completed middle and high school. And now he is graduating has seen him blossom and grow in many ways. Words cannot express how grateful I am to them. Dr. Wain, all the teachers and the support staff, are extraordinary, knowledgeable, and caring individuals. Their curriculum is top-notch and they have a small student/teacher ratio. And a bully free environment. My son loves his school and has received high-quality instruction from day one.. THANK YOU Ten Stars and highly recommended! #outstanding #classof2021

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!! :)

Hello, everyone! I'm not only a school administrator I'm also a parent.. Since 2013, my children are coming to APA. Since the first day they came to school, my kids were happy. Not only because of the teachers attention, but it gave them the chance to be themselves. To feel that they can learn at their pace, without being yelled at or bullied. For me, that's a plus on my book! I was first a parent at APA, and I'm proud to be the Admissions Director.

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.

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

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 **********
