DAAPS is a Premier Program exclusively offered at Shadow Mountain High School. Courses are designed to exceed the district and state curriculum requirements and challenge the gifted or honors student. Students read, interpret, analyze, and evaluate literature. Interdisciplinary courses are part of the curriculum, and students focus on four areas: the critical evaluation of texts, English syntax, grammar, college-level research, and interdisciplinary writing.
