AP - Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement courses offer the honors students the opportunity to do college-level work while still in high school.  Upon completion of an AP course, students may take the nationally administered examination in May.  College credit may be awarded if the student earns an acceptable grade on this exam.  An AP grade report are posted online in early July to students.  AP courses also receive weighted grades:  A = 5,  B = 4,  C = 3.  No weight is offered for a grade of D.
 
Taking AP classes gives students an edge in college preparation. Students get a head start on college-level work, improve writing skills and sharpen problem-solving techniques.
They also develop the study habits necessary for tackling rigorous course work.

Taking AP classes helps students stand out in the college admissions process. These students demonstrate maturity and readiness for college, willingness to push themselves to the limit and emphasize their commitment to academic excellence.
