Changes to A.P.P.L.E. at Mamaroneck High School Before School Board


The Mamaroneck School Board will hear Tuesday night from residents opposed to the District’s plans to eliminate the APPLE program at Mamaroneck High School.

“As taxpayers, home-owners, parents, grandparents and members of this community, we need to ensure that all students have a place in our Public School system,” says Richard Zeitoun, whose daughter attends the program.

“This vital program… has been a life-line and  safety-net for 1000’s of non-traditional learners for the past 40 years,” he writes.

A petition to save the program has over 700 signatures.

Among the School Board’s proposed changes, could be redesigning APPLE “from a four-year cohort model to a more fluid, flexible, needs-based constellation of programs and services.”

According to the High School website, “A.P.P.L.E. is an acronym for A Place People Learn Excellence. Students that come to A.P.P.L.E. are here for a variety of reasons, but mostly they are searching for the structure and familiarity of a small home base within the larger community of MHS.”
