Advanced Placement

  • What is AP?

    Advanced Placement classes are based on college-level courses. They teach higher-level thinking skills and allow the students to experience the atmosphere and the expectations of a college course. AP courses can also provide college credit, increase the chances of success in college, and help save money on college. Click here for additional AP information go to or email Dr. Gore
