Pre-Advanced Placement & Advanced Placement
Honors Course Overview
The PreAP program supports the belief that all students can perform well at rigorous academic levels and should be challenged to expand their knowledge and skills to the next level. Beginning at middle school, students should have multiple opportunities to acquire the knowledge, concepts, and skills needed to engage in a higher level of learning. Taking PreAP or PreAP Honors courses helps students explore their academic strengths while actively learning at the depth and breadth of knowledge that will equip them for success in advanced coursework in high school and beyond.
Advanced Placement Course Overview
Beginning in high school, students have the opportunity to take courses taught at the Advanced Placement level. These courses are taught by highly qualified high school teachers at a level that helps students experience what college is like, while receiving support that will help them develop strategies for independent success when they get to college. Students are expected to take the AP exam at the end of each AP course which may earn them college credit. By doing college level work in high school, students can take risks, gain confidence and demonstrate that they were willing to challenge themselves in high school.
