I am in the unique position that one of my children went to Wekiva High School and the other went to Apopka High School. Both have strengths and shortcomings, and it is important to think about what type of student you have to determine which school would fit best with their personality. Scholarly student--best at Wekiva Athletic student--Apopka Artistic Student--Wekiva Engineering/Robotics program--Apopka Laser Photonics program--Wekiva Medical Sciences program--Apopka Agricultural program--Apopka Musical student--Apopka Both schools have JROTC--Apopka has Marines, Wekiva has Air Force Wekiva is generally more willing to cooperate with unique student needs. At Apopka, there is some bureaucratic nonsense that can be frustrating if you don't see eye to eye with what the school recommends for your student. That said, both my children have had great successes at both schools because the schools played to their individual strengths. Apopka is working at improving its emphasis on academics, but they have a ways to go to catch up to Wekiva in that department.

My school is Awesome. It really excels in athletics and the musical department. The marching band is amazing and the football team is really good. To be honest, the staff in the office don't seem to take the students seriously. My mom was very upset after she didn't get any help, but put negativity aside AHS is an amazing school. My best friend who is in private school is considering going to AHS when she gets older. If you want a school that supports creativity and extracurriculars AHS is the way to go. We also have the JROTC program and I actually took two semesters. It's Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps so they don't mess around and it's a great course if you are interested in becoming involved in the military. The chorus department is also a class I take and I really enjoyed it. I know this is a really long review but Apopka High gets looked down upon because we seem very, well I can't quite find a word for it but we might come about "Ghetto" i guess. We aren't. This is a great school and we take our pride seriously. Go Darters.

I completely hate this school. This school is just plain ridiculous! The teachers don't even care at all and don't even teach! All of my teachers except for one just let the class do anything and just sat there on their phones or on their computers even during semester exams. My parent and I tried to contact teachers and staff and no one replied a all. I was a straight A student before I came here and took all AP's and Honors and I dropped down to a 2.0. I felt no one there really cared about me and I felt no one tried to help me improve. So I had to learn everything on my own through the textbooks because I could not rely on the teachers to teach me the material. Also their attendance policy is really asinine. They suspend students for being late to school five or six time without even giving them referral first. I got suspended and I felt I was labeled as a misbehaved child but I am not. I have a perfect record and even won an award from President Barack Obama. The man who deals with attendance thinks he runs everything and is very disrespectful. Overall this was a horrible experience and I would NOT recommend attending this school. No one cares and it is all about football!

Many families living in Neighboring counties have a 'less than' view of Orange County schools as a whole. However, as an employee of one of these neighboring counties with a child at AHS, I must say, my views stand to be corrected! I am impressed! As an earlier post said, calls & emails are returned quickly ... The rule of thumb being ASK and you shall receive. If you are not a parent who takes initiative, don't be surprised if you never hear from your child's teacher(s) except through report cards, progress reports and Progress Book (which, by the way is a MUST for all parents)! An earlier post referenced the gifted program .... Don't assume there is one as the days in elementary or middle school. At the high school level, there is a bit of a twist of which you should inquire. We will be leaving AHS, but go with confidence that it really is an excellent place to learn IF your child self advocates and YOU stay informed! Effective leadership & excellent & timely communication - be sure to sign up for email communications & join PTA and SAC!

Both my children loved being at Apopka High School. They were active in sports, clubs and music programs. It is great to see the school information in the weekly paper. Alumni news, student news and articles by staff and the school board member are fun ways to keep up with the school.

our child goes to Apopka HS. It's OK. Nothing to write home about. If you need someone to get back to you, it won't happen fast, you may have to wait a week.

Im a student at Apk high. I was sooo happy to see my new school on open house day. I think that the old campus didnt give our school justice.The freshman campus was horrible and dirty and so was the main campus. I've met my teachers and i like them very much. I think this year will be great.
