Connect with APS Schools the Week of Oct. 24

The APS School Choice Fair on Oct. 25 will highlight our magnet schools. That same week, we're hosting school community fairs that will showcase the schools in your neighborhood.

"One of the advantages of being a large urban-suburban-rural school district is our ability to offer so many choices, from traditional neighborhood schools to smaller magnet schools with focused areas of study. And within all of our schools, there are programs, activities, classes, pathways, and support systems designed to fit the needs of a diverse, curious, and impressionable student body." -- APS Superintendent Scott Elder 

For nearly a decade, Albuquerque Public Schools has hosted a School Choice Fair that traditionally showcases magnet and charter schools across the district.

This year, we're adding school community fairs that will highlight the schools in your neighborhood, too. Most of these fairs will be held at high schools, though some may be at middle or elementary schools. Details are still being worked out, so watch for updated information.  

The idea is to help students and families find the right fit by exploring all our schools offer. Let us help you make the best choice for your student in the 2023-2024 school year.
