    Lunch menus are posted on PowerSchool (https://apis.powerschool.com) and are also posted daily in the cafeteria.
    Lunch fees are due at the beginning of each semester.

  • School Uniform (Required)
    Students may purchase the APIS uniform at the school store. Some items are available in Lands’ End School Uniform store. (https://www.landsend.com) APIS’ preferred school number is 900189994.

  • School Bus
    Seats on the bus cannot be reserved in advance or guaranteed for new applicants. Once an applicant has been officially accepted, parents must submit the Transportation Request Form found in their packets in order to request a spot. These requests are then forwarded to the Transportation Office for consideration over the summer months when bus route changes take place. Although APIS will make every effort to serve all newly enrolled students with their transportation needs, the school does not guarantee a seat assignment on a particular bus for students.
