A Message from Our Superintendent
Happy New Year to the students and families of APS!
It’s a new year, open to countless possibilities and exciting changes! We are thrilled to share our new website with you and hope that you will take a few minutes to explore the site and get acquainted with the information and resources we have available to you. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the modern design and access to information as much as we do!
At APS, the child comes first; we believe that the needs of our students take priority over all else. As a community of educators, we strive to provide the kind of education that will bring that belief to fruition. We recognize and value the role parents and caregivers play in the success of a child and invite you to join with us, as our partner, in the education of your child. Together, we can make great things happen!
