Our goal and philosophy
Apollo High School’s programs are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they will need to lead satisfying and productive lives. The programs are intended to prepare students for further education and work, and to assist them in becoming independent, productive, and responsible members of society.
Apollo High School has the educational philosophy that knowledge is constructed by individuals and not deposited by an instructor. We aim to provide students with an education that stimulates thought and curiosity. The balance consists of providing students with enough of a challenge to provoke interest and thought, without overwhelming students or underestimating their potential.
A multicultural awareness also shapes our strategies and school philosophy as a whole, creating an environment where culturally relevant teaching can exist. The school system at Apollo High School has been organized to provide as broad a scope of programs as possible to all students and, at the same time, to deal effectively with the special needs and interests of students.
