Advanced Placement

AP classes offer a challenging and stimulation educational experience for college bound students. When compared to other high school courses, AP classes often take more time, require more work, and give greater opportunity for individual growth and accomplishment. In May, AP exams are taken and scored on a 5 point scale. Most major colleges and universities recognize scores of 3, 4, or 5 for college credit. The amount and type of credit awarded varies by institution. Students who need special accommodations, must notify their teacher and the AP Coordinator upon enrollment in the course, but no later than January 29, 2021.
