I'm surprised by the negative comments from a lot of folks. We are new to the school, sophomore year, and come from Silicon Valley schools in California. The curriculum here is twice as fast (semester classes vs whole year) and my daughter has had all the help she has needed to acclimate. All of her ...  Read more

I have had 2 kids at this school and I have tutored many other kids that go here. It has to be one of the worst high schools in Wake County. The teachers are terrible and do not know how to teach well, they do not give appropriate homework that promotes learning, they test things they have not taught, ...  Read more

Apex High School has many opportunities for students to try different area's of life like medical, music, technology and so on. Funding has been tough and it is in need of a revamp (I believe it is on the list) but most of the teachers and students are supportive and seem to care. I think administration ...  Read more

Be careful with this school. If you think that you might need more than a roof and a teacher, you will want to avoid Apex High. The rating of 8/10 is extremely misleading. They do not focus on academics, the school is dirty, and they are equipped with teachers who do not take the time nor the effort ...  Read more

Our son just graduated this year (2013) with a 3.93gpa, is attending ECU in the fall and was accepted to 5 other universities. He participated in the AOIT (Academy of Information Technology) program which really was beneficial in his educational progress. Couldn't be happier!

I currently have a child at Apex, and one that has already graduated. We have loved Apex in the years we have been here. I agree that the building is old, and overcrowding does exist, but that is a county wide problem, not inclusive to Apex. You cannot judge a book by it's cover, although the campus ...  Read more

Many students that graduate here go to top colleges nationwide. Some examples are Notre Dame, West Point, Duke, UNC- Chapel Hill...it's true that the top teachers teach AP/Honors classes, but doesn't that make sense?

Teachers are awful, students are somewhat nice. overcrowded, discouraging, depressing environment. i am transferring next year to a different school because i am unimpressed with what i have dealt with at apex high school. people smoke everywhere on campus and it is absolutely disgusting! most of them ...  Read more

As parents of a junior student, we are pleased with our child's performance starting both at Apex Middle School and now at Apex High School. Yes, 2,300 students can be challenging and buildings show their age as with any school similar in size - especially during these economic times. Recent SAT scores ...  Read more
