Virtues Program

APM strives to teach to the whole child – academically, socially, physically and emotionally. When a child breaks a school expectation we look upon it as a teachable moment.

Our school “discipline” plan is founded on the belief that we all make mistakes and that all children want to do well - and have it within them to do so. Based on this belief, APM adopted the Virtues Program.

The Virtues Program, developed by Linda Kavelin Popov, believes that schools should be a safe and happy learning environment for all children. The purpose is to develop a culture of character where respect, patience, self-discipline, tolerance and joy for learning are among the virtues children master.

During the school year the fifty-two virtues are taught and discussed with the students. These virtues exist within each child in potential and it is our purpose to awaken each virtue within them.
