Aspire2excellence From the Classroom to Career

 Every APS student will be college and career-ready upon graduation. The key to student readiness is early planning, which begins at the elementary level and continues throughout a student’s school career including post-secondary decision making. At APS, we endeavor to provide accurate, useful and timely information in various formats at multiple points throughout the school year to assist families with making educational and career plans.
