I start by saying that Azalea Park Baptist school is an excellent school. My son loves it, the teachers are very dedicated to the students. Mrs Yendi always keeps up informed of each situation with the children. The principal of the school is very professional and pleasant. My child has learned a lot in kindergarten. They teach the world of God. I recommended it one hundred percent.

I love teaching at Azalea Park Baptist School. APBS has successfully served the Orlando community since 1961! We are a Christian school using the ABEKA curriculum as our foundation. Throughout the year many other learning experiences are provided for students that are engaging and offer "hands on, experiential learning" opportunities. We have developed a volunteer program with the University of Central Florida which offers UCF students the opportunity to have supervised classroom experience. This also is a great benefit to our classroom teachers as they provide many learning opportunities for their students. We have an active, and enthusiastic athletic program for boys and girls. I invite you to visit our wonderful school to find out what sets Azalea Park Baptist School apart from all the rest!

Most private schools have endowment funds. We explain how these work and why schools are fortunate to have them in tough times.
COVID-19 has turned education at every level upside-down, inside-out. We offer some steps to guide your planning for academic year 2020-21.
Teachers and parents are concerned about the teaching that will take place post-pandemic. I have tried to cover their concerns in the following set of questions and answers.
