The school playground provides a safe outdoors environment within the school that stimulates children to use their creative energy in healthy interactions with one another.

APSI have large, open playgrounds with interesting play equipment that leaves many options for creativity. Children sit at their classroom desk for many hours each day. They are given breaks in between where they go outdoors to the playground. The key to these playgrounds is choice: use the play equipment, run on the field, jump rope, play basketball, or create some new game to challenge friends.
