    Advanced Placement courses are college-level classes taught at PRHS by PRHS teachers with additional training and certification.  Research has shown that students who participate in AP courses outperform others in college, particularly in grades and graduation rates. PRHS believes that all students deserve access to the rigor of advanced coursework and can be successful with the appropriate support.

    Advanced Placement coursework requires students to complete in-depth reading and writing assignments; research and study outside of class time to analyze the material covered in the course; to work independently and push him/herself academically and intellectually; and to engage in the study of subject matter beyond just learning facts –focusing on the analysis and the synthesis of material.

  • AP Lions Learning Institute

    The AP Lions Learning Institute for rising 9th graders who are registered for AP courses in the 2019-20 school year will take place Thursday, July 18th from 1pm to 3:30pm at Peachtree Ridge High School. Students who are attending Preview the Ridge in the morning should bring a lunch to eat between the two events.
    This is a chance for students who are taking AP Human Geography or AP Human/AP Environmental Science to hear from our AP Teachers about the skills and strategies that will help to make them successful during the course of their high school career. We will also have current students available to answer questions and time for students to get any help they need on their Summer Reading Assignments.

    Please register by July 1, 2018

    If you have any questions, please email Carrie Petty at carrie_petty@gwinnett.k12.ga.us
