AP (Advanced Placement)

  • All AP courses follow a nationally standardized rigorous curriculum developed by The College Board. Students who are usually successful in AP courses are those who perform academically in the top 2% nationally in their chosen subject area. To receive college level AP credit a student must take and pass the AP exam.  Each AP Exam is given an overall grade of 1,2,3,4, or 5.  Credits are awarded by the various colleges and universities according to the score received on the AP exam. Students/parents should check with the specific college or university to see their AP acceptance policy. There is an additional fee to take the AP exam.  These courses are graded on a five (5) point grading scale.

    AP Test

    AP tests are the culmination of year-long Advanced Placement (AP) courses. All but one of the AP exams combine multiple-choice questions with a free-response section in either essay or problem-solving format. AP Studio Art, the sole exception, requires students to submit a portfolio for review.
