March 20, 2020, from College Board – As schools and communities navigate the unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the health and safety of educators and students are the AP Program’s top priorities. Here is how the College Board is supporting schools.
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.
