Discover This School

Aptos Middle School's mission is to provide an enriching, engaging, and empowering educational experience with equitable outcomes for each student using critical pedagogy and research-based, multi-tiered systems of instruction and intervention to promote student self-mastery, scholarship, and social justice.


Every student who attends Aptos Middle School will master: 
  • the core knowledge, critical thinking skills, and competencies outlined by the Common Core State Standards (CCSS); 
  • the knowledge, skills, and experience to navigate the “real world” and solve problems that arise in everyday life and in the workplace; 
  • the ability to navigate and engage in a 21st century global society that is more inclusive, interconnected, and multilingual; 
  • strong interpersonal skills and the ability to positively influence and collaborate with others; 
  • the freedom, confidence, and ability to express their unique selves; and 
  • our graduates will see themselves as filled with purpose and value.

Core Values:
Known as "T.I.G.E.R. Style," our core values reflect a universal code of ethics along with the character traits necessary for student academic success and positive social-emotional growth. The values form the word "tiger" and represent the following acronym:
TEAMWORK: All means all, by all means necessary.
INTEGRITY: Commitment to honor moral and ethical values and principles.
GRIT: The courage to fail; the passion and perseverance to succeed.
EMPATHY: Understanding and sharing others' emotions and experiences.
RESPONSIBILITY: Accountable for every word and every action.

We Can, We Will, We Must!
