APS has implemented Edline online services for an effective communication between students, parents and faculty. APS provides its students an efficient Internet service and online research databases. APS students that excel in an area of technology are challenged with new advanced levels. Some students are guided to an independent study and the teacher becomes a facilitator. APS teachers provide a variety of techniques or assessment tools that develop these opportunities. These assessments, such as projects, debates, presentations, programs and competitions provide the opportunities to work collaboratively, competitively and independently.
