Check out our roadmap to AP. 5 teachers, of 13 in our district, with 134 years’ experience from NKC Schools will share district, building, course, and teacher structures/processes that has built desirable skill-sets for APSA students WHILE growing our programs. As the 3rd most diverse/4th largest district in Missouri, 31% are AP students, we have created a collaborative culture that honors inclusion for all students, prioritized cultural responsiveness, and participation in professional learning communities/teams. We have embedded essential AP skills in our curriculum and teaching strategies, streamlining instruction while meeting diverse students’ needs. Alignment at the district, building, and course levels has better prepared students and teachers developing life-long learning, ambitious and college ready artists. Travel with us and be a champion for ALL students.
