the mariner way at AHS
SAIL at aptos high school


Aptos High School has implemented Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) that is based on coherent and consistent school wide behavioral expectations that teach and reinforce positive behaviors.  The school wide behavioral expectations are anchored in "The Mariner Way."   "The Mariner Way" is to act in such a way that Aptos High School becomes a community of positivity, inclusiveness, engagement, and achievement.  "The Mariner Way" will be applied to all settings on campus (classrooms, hallways, quad, cafeteria, restrooms, locker rooms, library, buses, parking lots, and the office) and at school related events.  "The Mariner Way" will be taught and reinforced through the acronym SAIL.  SAIL stands for Safe Community, Aspire Higher, Integrity Oriented, and Lead by Example. 

Mariners will be awarded points and earn rewards for exhibiting "The Mariner Way" by Mariner staff. We are using to track a student’s points for displaying positive behaviors. Also, students can earn points by participating in extra and co-curricular activities and by attending certain school events.  Students will need their Student Identification Cards to be awarded points.  Students will be able to redeem their points for rewards on Redeem Days during the school year.
