An AP English Language instructor had this to say about APSI:

“I believe that the AP training is some of the best professional development available. The classes usually have great suggestions for improving critical thinking skills, and many of the suggestions can be implemented in more classes than just an AP class. I use AP techniques in just about everything that I teach.”

A 2023 APSI participant said:

“Best professional development I’ve attended since I started teaching.”
