The academics are so relevant and well-applied. The kids know why they are learning something and are using this knowledge to relate to and understand real-life situations. My son's confidence in himself and his abilities has completely turned around and I am beyond grateful for that. APA has INSPIRED my son to learn outside of school, on his own time. He has cultivated a very clear vision for his future and is already taking steps to better himself (in knowledge & experience) so that he can be & do what it is he feels he is meant to do with his life. The students are constantly introduced to new and relevant topics and concepts. I absolutely love having conversations with him about real world and real-life problems or events and hearing his perspective and thoughts on things. His confidence has grown so much in the short time that we've been at APA.

I personally believe the work is easy, however there is an average amount. I think that in certain subject we will use it later in life, but other things not. I will say they have all the curriculums up to date and care a lot about our education. Honestly I enjoy the work, its fun and simple, also help is always available. Lessons are extensive and always have all the things that we need to succeed and complete the following lesson/worksheet. The projects and assignments we do are fun and are usually hand-on. They help me learn about my surroundings and community here.

I have had two children at APA. My son was extremely well-prepared for high school when he graduated from grade 8. He knew what to expect and how to work independently. He had already covered quite a bit of the curriculum in grade 9. He is now at Queen's and thriving. Both my kids are very strong academically. They we challenged and pushed in a gentle, respectful manner. They were encouraged to be leaders and contribute to the school community. The academic level at APA is very high. The children are involved in various activities during the day to make learning engaging. They put on plays, build models, do interesting art projects all to increase their participation and learning. One year the teacher brought in butterfly larvae and they painstakingly watched them hatch into butterflies.
