I currently have 2 children attending Aptos Academy ( Pre-K and 1st grade) and we couldn't be more pleased with the school! My children love their teachers. The school is a very safe environment for the students. The teachers and staff are amazing and really care about the kids and their academic success. ...  Read more

Aptos Academy really cares about their kids. The principal and staff are approachable and easy to work with. The 2013 CAT scores revealed that the average class was over 2 grades ahead. The school is small and a tight little community, but very open to others. I highly recommend it. My kids have ...  Read more

This school was started almost 20 yrs ago by a couple of parents who just wanted to give their kids a really good, solid education. That tradition continues here, on a beautiful campus that is full of kids who are happy and want to learn. Our neighbor's child went from k thru 8 at this school and is ...  Read more

Yea, and I also hear that the principal wasn't even BORN here. HA! Please people!! Who cares what religious beliefs anyone holds as long as those beliefs don't adversely impact outcomes. And that's what this is about. Outcomes. You can stick your kid in with 28 other children whose teacher is " Christian" ...  Read more

My son loved his preschool and preschool teachers. This school is a hidden treasure. The preschool is Montessori-based without the expensive Montessori prices, and the teachers are masterful in understanding the individual child. They work on social development and help create an atmosphere of kindness. ...  Read more

Save your money and do NOT send your children to this place!! This school is struggling and has been for quite some time. Scientology is indeed an undercurrent at the Aptos Academy, regardless of what they say otherwise. Be wise! There are definitely better schools in the area...

My son attended Aptos Academy for 7th and 8th grades and it was just such a positive experience in all aspects. He got focused academic attention from the 7th/8th grade teacher, Lee Hoover, who worked with each student individually, with a special emphasis on language arts and writing proficiency. In ...  Read more

At the 8th grade graduation last night I was so impressed that I decided to write a review. The grads were articulate and poised, each thanked the staff for their specific contribution to their academic success and all stated that they are confident and ready for high school. A really impressive group ...  Read more

School claims to let each child progress at their own pace, but nobody will go out of their way to actually allow kids who are ahead to progress faster than their peers because "this wouldn't be fair to the other kids". The Principal is consumed by her own personal problems to the detriment of her job, ...  Read more
