APES is a course that equates to  ONE SEMESTER of college environmental science. The best part is that we do not have to teach it the way colleges do (lecture, teacher-centered). We facilitate the learning process by engaging students in the concepts and provide opportunities for them to increase their literacy so that they can best communicate and articulate what they know to others in an effective way. A beautiful process indeed!

This course follows a national curriculum. The College Board  creates this content and provides a lot of helpful information about this course, the assessment in May and opportunities to review past questions.
