Inclusion is a core value at APL, both in our classrooms and in our community.
We are proud to be part of Seattle's U-District and love to partner with local organizations and businesses. Some of our partnerships create robust programs for our learners in the classroom, while others support our goal to include our neurodiverse learners in the wider-community via tours, shopping trips, and even employment.
