Advanced Placement Courses
Advanced Placement (AP) courses expose high school students to college-level curriculum. Students may study challenging subjects of interest in a variety of areas —arts, English, foreign language, mathematics, science, and social studies. *In order to enroll in AP coursework, students must possess appropriate prerequisite courses and choose to participate in this advanced course of study. AP exams are administered in the spring of each school year. Colleges and universities may grant credit, placement, or both based on scores on the exams.Beginning with the freshman (9th) class in the 2008-09 school year, students enrolled in AP courses are required to take the AP exams given by the College Board in order to receive AP weighted credit. If students do not take the exam, the AP designation will be dropped to Honors level. Students will be required to decide during the first quarter/term of the AP course whether they will take the exam. Students will pay for a maximum of three AP exams over the course of their high school career. AP exam fees for the fourth and subsequent exams will be paid by the Board of Education. Financial assistance is available from the College Board to students who qualify. Students wishing to take an AP course not offered at their home high school must talk with their principal to determine if there are other available options to take the course. AP courses require more rigorous and expansive reading, writing, and research than Honors or standard level courses. The following are recommended limits on the number of AP courses a student should take:Ninth grade – No AP courses                             Eleventh grade – Up to three courses
Tenth grade – One AP course                            Twelfth grade – Up to four courses

*Recommended criteria for entrance into AP coursework includes a GPA of “90” in Honors English, prerequisite or related coursework, and/or teacher or principal recommendation.
