AP (Advanced Placement) Courses require prerequisite grades and standardized test scores which indicate the student’s potential to take the course. AP courses require increased work outside the classroom reading, individualized assignments, essay-type tests, problem-solving skills, much additional classroom work, and the motivation to undertake and complete outside the classroom research and individual investigation of problems.
AP testing (at the student’s expense) will be available for all students completing AP World History, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP English, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP U.S. History, AP Government, AP Spanish, AP French and AP Art. Students in AP courses will receive a weighting factor of 1.08. The principal has the final say on student placement in AP courses.
