Students will be expected to obtain the recommendation of a teacher and/or complete outside (i.e. summer) assignments when requested.
These college level courses are for students who demonstrate the highest levels of competence. The intent of the rigorous course work is to prepare students to take the AP (Advanced Placement) Examination. Due to the extreme rigor of the course work, 5 points will be earned for an "A". If the student passes the AP Examination with a score of 3 or better, the student may not have to take the class in college. The course outline is based upon the requirements established by the Educational Testing Service. Grades are weighted with an "A" yielding 5 grade points, "B" = 4 points, "C" = 3 points and "D" grades or lower are not weighted.
**Due to the rigor of these classes, high levels of academic performance and achievement in previous classes will be considered for enrollment. Students may be required to complete preliminary coursework over the summer in order to enroll in the AP course(s) in the fall.
