Over 200 middle school students attend the Quincy Public Schools Advanced Placement Center (APC) for Grades 6-8 at Central Middle School.  These students attended all eleven of the city’s elementary schools and many completed the Elementary Learning Center (ELC) program for Grade 5 students.  Students (including those not currently attending Quincy Public Schools) are also invited to attend the APC program for Grade 6  based on an evaluation of their academic records and recent assessments.

Students may be considered for the APC based on a parent request for evaluation (also called an appeal).  At this time, appeals are being accepted for the 2014-2015 school year; click here to download and print the form.

Appeals are reviewed by a team of administrators in the Spring and decisions are shared with families by the end of the school year.  An additional assessment tool to assist in the appeal process may be utilized this spring and more information on this will be forthcoming.

The completed form may be submitted to your child’s school principal or mailed to Erin Perkins, Curriculum Coordinator, 159 Burgin Parkway, Quincy, MA  02169.  If you have further questions, please contact Erin Perkins at erinperkins@quincypublicschools.com.
