What is Advanced Placement® or AP®?
Special note for 20-21:
Last year, due to campus closures nationwide, AP exams were taken by students online, at home. The format of the exams was altered to reduce content covered, the number of questions and the type of questions.
As of this time, the College Board has not announced a plan to use alternative testing methods again this year. That is likely to change, but they currently suggest that in-person, traditional testing will take place.
The College Board® offers an Advanced Placement® program which is a collaborative effort among motivated students, dedicated teachers, committed high schools, colleges, and universities. Since it's inception in 1955, the AP program has allowed students to take college-level courses and exams and to earn college credit and/or placement while still in high school.
In 2019, 90.2% of RUHS students who took an AP course earned a score of 3 or higher on their AP tests! The 2019 global average was only 59.6%!
If you are interested in taking AP courses, talk to an AP teacher or your counselor about the course you want to take. Discuss the course's workload and any preparation you may need.
