Wheat Ridge High School has received the Legacy Schools Grant to promote AP courses in English, Math, and Science. The Colorado Legacy Foundation has chosen Wheat Ridge High School to participate in cohort 3 of the Legacy Schools solution, an initiative that works to change school culture around AP courses, helping schools recruit and support students who might not typically enroll in AP courses. Data shows that students who take rigorous AP courses in high school are more likely to attend, and graduate from, college. This grant, which will be funded for the next three years 2014 through 2017, will provide additional training for our AP teachers as well as incentives and financial support for students enrolled in an AP course.

You can also view the power point that we have shared with students or the flier that has been sent to parents through email below
