Important Testing Updates & Resources

  • AP Exams

    Advanced Placement (AP) classes are available at all GPS high schools.

    AP courses prepare students to take the national Advanced Placement examination given in the late spring of each school year.

    Students may be granted advanced placement status and/or college credit on the basis of how well they perform on these tests. Information regarding advanced placement courses and examinations is available from the counseling office of each high school.

    Students are not required to take an advanced placement course to be eligible to take the advanced placement examination; however, students enrolled in AP courses are expected to take the AP exam.


    Advanced Placement (AP) classes are available at Highland High School. AP classes require the type of high-level calculating and critical thinking that students will encounter in their first year of college.
