The AAP Program provides eligible students an opportunity for advanced-level work with students who share their academic ability and interest. Students take AAP classes in English, social studies and science. Math course enrollment is based on the student's academic and test history. All middle school students will attend their neighborhood school regardless of Highly Capable qualification.
