    The AP program, developed by the College Board, is the most widely accepted college-level academic program available to high school students. AP courses are rigorous, high-level courses designed to give students a head start in college.

    Each AP course has a corresponding exam, given in May, that assesses the knowledge and skills students have acquired throughout the course. A passing score on the AP exam can earn students college credit at most colleges and universities, saving them time and money. Research has shown that students who take AP courses and exams are significantly more likely than their peers to graduate from college in four years, and they are more likely to receive college scholarships.

    AP Outreach Night:  WHS is hosting an AP Outreach Night on Tuesday, November 28 from 6:00-7:15pm in the WHS Theatre.  All students are welcome. 

     The WHS AP Coordinator (Mrs. Snider gsnider@rjuhsd.us) and AP Teachers will be available to answer any questions.   

     This informational evening will  provide information about the benefits of AP courses and the specific process for enrolling in their school’s AP program.
