Questions about AP?


AP classes at WHS are rigorous academic courses designed for students who are college bound. There is no placement test for AP.  Students self-select these courses and should be prepared to work at a college-level pace.  At the end of the course, the student is expected to take the AP exam which is managed by College Board.
AP exams are highly recognized by colleges and universities with regard to a student's preparation for the demands of college courses.  AP exams present an opportunity for college credit and/or higher placement in college courses.  Each college decides which AP exam grades it will accept for credit or placement.
