The staff at PAPA celebrates student success in academics and the performing arts. Our faculty prides themselves in offering the very best  instruction available to public school students. Students are encouraged to select a rigorous set of courses. The more rigorous the course loads in high school, the more prepared students are for college and beyond. Teachers have high expectations, promote student accountability and responsibility, and provide support where it is needed. Students will achieve the highest level of success if they attend all classes, engage in instruction, and complete all assignments. Most of all, the staff wants to see each student develop talents and acquire skills that will prepare them for college and help them to become successful, productive adults.
