Advanced Placement



Advanced Placement Classes

AP classes offer a challenging and stimulating 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 of credit varies by institution. Students who are in need of special accommodations, must notify their teacher and the AP Coordinator upon enrollment in the course, but no later than February 1, 2018. 


Important Dates

AP Exams will be administered May 7-18, 2018. Check out the AP Calendar to find out the specific dates and times of your exam. Students and parents should also refer to the AP Testing Information Flyer and 2017-18 AP Letter to Parents for everything you need to know about Registration, Mandatory Preadministration, Test Fees, Fee Reductions, etc.
