OUR EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
We believe in preparing learners for life in a world where they will interact with compassion, courage and resilience; a mindset that respects differences. The school will therefore be a community of stakeholders invested in the personal, intellectual, social, physical and spiritual development of every learner. Children are provided with a variety of options and multiple opportunities to learn and succeed. Every child will be nurtured to take an active role in making this planet an impartial, inclusive, self-sustaining world.
The class sizes are kept small, maintaining a 1:22 teacher-student ratio. The classrooms include: first generation learners; children with disabilities; foreign nationals, and children requiring economic support. The professionals working at APL are encouraged to bring in diversity by being innovative, and constantly challenge themselves and the students.
