Our Vision

Through inquiry based instruction and curriculum, students will have
the ability to solve complex problems, think critically, and advocate persuasively for themselves and their communities. Students will graduate from APL with the skills,
knowledge, leadership capabilities, and confidence to pursue their dreams, excel in their studies, and become productive, empowered, civic-minded citizens whose decisions and actions effect positive change in their communities.
