our-students-transparent“THANK YOU to APTS for the tremendous work you do with (and for) our children. We are truly thankful for your hard work and dedication, because it takes a very special person to do what you do. You are teaching and molding our kids into the best citizens that they can be, when most have given-up or stopped trying… I have seen a huge difference in James* in just the short period of time that he’s been at APTS. It makes me feel so good to hear him proudly tell me that he got all of his school work done, or that he had a great day! Thank you all for helping my son to be successful!”
