April's Choice Check: Preschool

Enroll now for the 2022-2023 school year.

During the 2021-2022 school year, APS is highlighting some of our many programs through a monthly feature called Choice Checks. One of the advantages of being a large urban-suburban-rural school district is offering so many choices. The APS Choice Checks webpage as well as the 2021-2022 wall calendar distributed to families and employees across the district, feature just a few of the many educational opportunities we provide students – from dual language and dual credit, career-based and college-based learning, college prep and marketable job skills, fine arts and competitive sports.

Developing a foundation for a lifetime of learning
