Profile of a Graduate

  • Our vision for teaching and learning, exemplified by the characteristics of the APS Profile of a Graduate, is an exciting step toward preparing each student for their journey into the future, and preparing our staff to help guide the way. As we prepare each student to graduate ready for college, career, and life, APS will use this Portrait of a Graduate to further define the knowledge, skills, and mindsets expected of our graduates. We believe the profile characteristics are critical skills for engaged citizenship, successful career paths beyond high school, and meaningful community involvement. We are excited to explore how each of the profile characteristics will be demonstrated at different ages.
