Important Testing Updates & Resources
Update: District ACT Testing for Class of 2021 (12th grade students) will be offered on student's enrolled home high school campus during the school day on October 20, 2020.
This October 20, 2020 ACT (No Writing) paper administration is meant to replace the missed spring 2020 opportunity for Cohort 2021. GPS will still administer ACT (No Writing) to Cohort 2022 in April 2021 (computer-based).
Advanced Placement (AP)
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.
AP/Honors classes are not available to homebound students. For more information see the Guidance and Counseling office or please visit www.apcentral.collegeboard.com.
