The Auburn Public Schools is committed to providing a rigorous and relevant educational program designed to challenge and support our students to achieve their personal best. We are committed to open communication, continuous improvement, and collaboration with you, our partners in education.
We likewise believe in recognizing the achievements and accomplishments of our students, faculty, and district. This section of the APS website is designed to do just that: recognize those who set high standards, committed to reaching a goal, and earned deserved distinction, whether in the classroom, on the playing field, in the community, or on the stage. We are proud of the progress we are making as a district and commit to a model of continuous improvement.
To those recognized here, congratulations for a job well done. To those who have yet to be recognized here, set your goals high, work hard and you, too, will find success.

AMS Rockets to Rockets- The student to student program was a huge success in its first year here at the middle school having over 30 students participating in monthly field trips and activities. The program partners students with and without disabilities together to form meaningful and long lasting friendships.
This year at Swanson Road Intermediate School was a year of many firsts. Along with acknowledging all of the remarkable academic accolades of our students, SWIS has transformed into a place where kids come together to learn, as well as encourage one other, and treat everyone with respect and kindness. Grades three through five students throughout the Auburn community, have merged seamlessly to create a remarkable academic, as well as social atmosphere. This demonstration of strength and unity is an admirable accomplishment that our whole community can be proud of. On a daily basis, students here at SWIS are encouraged to perform kind acts for one another, and their teachers, as part of our Random Acts of Kindness initiative. SWIS students put forth an outstanding performance, during the international event, known as the Great Kindness Challenge. During the last week of January, SWIS students, joined with close to five million other students and 7,701 other schools across the country, along with 61countries world-wide, to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge. Students attempted to perform as many kind acts as possible within one week using a checklist. As the checklists were collected, and totaled, the students blew me away with their participation and enthusiasm. Our combined number of kind acts performed totaled 9,343 Random Acts of Kindness, in one week. Recognized by the Random Acts of Kindness National Coalition, SWIS earned the title of a Kindness Certified School, for 2016. Our students also created the “Great Wall of Kindness Bulletin Board and a kindness video montage, representing the SWIS community in its entirety. Our students, and the culture that has been created here at SWIS, reminds me of a quote from the poet, Aesop, as he once quipped, “No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.” Assistant Principal Swanson Road Intermediate School Michael Lavelle
