Our mission is to provide learning experiences that support the development of the whole child – head, hands and heart, so that students are equipped with the tools they need for their future.
The Whole Child framework defines the APS vision to develop a sustainable approach and ensure that each student is “healthy, safe, supported, engaged, and academically challenged.” Here is a video to explain the whole child approach.
We are committed to being an inclusive learning community built on mutual trust and respect. We endeavor to share responsibility for the education of each child by fostering open lines of communication between families, teachers, and students, in a safe and supportive environment. Each child will grow academically, socially, and emotionally by celebrating accomplishments, considering other perspectives, and cultivating self-esteem. We inspire all students to discover their strengths and embrace learning so they can have success for today and be prepared for tomorrow.
