Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Due to the rigor and work load, all Advanced Placement (AP) courses are weighted at 5.0 quality points for an "A." All students completing AP courses must take the associated AP exams in May. If a student is unable to participate in the AP exam for a course, that course will be recognized on the student’s transcript as an advanced level course (weighted at 4.5 rather than 5.0 quality points) for the second semester, and the student must sit for the corresponding final exam (unless a senior exam exemption applies) and that exam will constitute 10% of the student’s second semester grade for the course. In the case of extreme extenuating circumstances, appeals to this practice may be submitted to the assistant superintendent of student learning and success.
