"Atlanta Public Schools Athletics program is committed to excellence in athletics as part of a larger commitment to excellence and education.”




    Dear Student Athletes,


    The opportunity to represent Atlanta Public Schools on the playing field requires determination, dedication and discipline. It demands the successful management of time and effort between academic responsibilities and athletic pursuits. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our student-athletes, and we will continue our tradition of enriching educational and extracurricular activities for all of our students. While academic achievement is the top priority of APS, we encourage our students to take advantage of the diverse experiences that our school system offers. I believe that athletics can be an integral part of developing well-rounded students. In fact, student- athletes typically develop a sense of pride, self-esteem, teamwork and commitment, traits that they may not realize in the classroom alone. Every coach, principal and teacher within APS understands that your participation in athletics can be an important supplement to your academic endeavors. Thank you for participating in our athletics program and for the hard work and discipline required of you. We trust that you will commit to delivering your best efforts on the playing field and in the classroom.

    Remember, representing APS in any endeavor, athletic or otherwise, is a privilege earned through hard work, determination and excellence in the classroom.


    I wish you all the best for the coming year.
    Erroll B. Davis, Jr. Superintendent
