Achievement Prep

New Families: Please check out Family Connections for more information about AppleTree Schools:

We’re excited for another year at AppleTree@Achievement Prep this fall!  We have four preschool classrooms and three pre-K classrooms in our beautiful new space at Achievement Prep.

Our AppleTree@ model means that we provide a high-quality preschool and pre-K at Achievement Prep at Achievement Prep’s public charter school that goes to 3rd grade. AppleTree students are enrolled at Achievement Prep and we work closely with the kindergarten teachers to ensure a successful transition from pre-K to elementary school.
