Chalk Talk: Advanced Placement Advice
Many high school students have probably heard the term AP or Advanced Placement courses. AP courses are offered at most high schools in a variety of content areas. Advanced Placement courses are very rigorous and require determination, hard work, and time commitment. Essentially you are taking a college-like course in a high school setting. However, the hard work can be time well-spent. Many students find the AP experience to be worthwhile and enjoy the challenge of the coursework. Additionally, AP courses tend to look better on college applications and transcripts because colleges recognize that you have been exposed to a rigorous college-like curriculum. Possibly most importantly is that AP courses can earn you college credits if you score high enough on the AP exams. College guidelines and acceptable AP scoring varies from school to school, but you have to potential to skip introductory classes at the college level by earning a qualifying score on the AP exam. Talk to your guidance counselor to see if Advanced Placement coursework is right for you!
