Advanced Placement

All students should have the opportunity to pursue more challenging academic opportunities. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are designed to provide students with more complex and rigorous academic content, comparable to the demands of college level course work. The program also provides the opportunity to earn college credit through the Advanced Placement testing program. Although not all colleges and universities grant credit for qualifying grades on Advanced Placement examinations, over 400 institutions do grant credit. Since there are much greater demands placed on those students who enroll in Advanced Placement courses, it is appropriate to establish a grading system that is commensurate with the nature of effort required.


Advanced placement grades will be weighted on a five point scale:

A = 5, B = 4, C = 3, D = 1, and F = 0.
