Posted on 04/07/2021

Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 4 Students:

I am writing to you today about advanced placement offerings in the Quincy Public Schools.  A team of stakeholders has been meeting regularly since February to collaborate and rethink enrichment opportunities and programming for our students.  We are in the process of exploring different models to ensure equity across elementary schools while providing programming that encompasses the methodologies, practices and theories of high-ability learners. 

We appreciate that there are many students that exhibit the potential for higher than average performance in areas of intellectual, creative, artistic, academic, and leadership capacities and we want to guide them in fully developing their talents and capabilities in the best way possible. 

We want you to know that we recognize that you are eager to learn more about these offerings and appreciate your patience as we constantly strive to improve academics and engagement for all students in the Quincy Public Schools.  Decisions will be made in May and we will be sure to share them with you. 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] or 617-745-7102.
