Advanced Academic Programs (AAP)
Learn about AAP at Belvedere.
Belvedere AAP Center
Students from area elementary schools in grades 3 through 5 who have been identified as academically advanced are given the opportunity to participate in a school-based center program at Belvedere. Special direct instruction is provided by an Advanced Academic Resource Teacher (AART) to extend these students' learning.
The AART provides support to additional students in specific areas of strength. Opportunities for these students may include different content assignments and/or instructional groupings.
