AP Testing

ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) TESTING  

East Ridge High School, in conjunction with District 833, is committed to offering our students a variety of rigorous learning opportunities.  Advanced Placement courses let students participate in college-level coursework while enrolled in a high school setting. 

Students can earn college credit, stand out in the college admissions process, gain skills that will help them succeed in college, and broaden their intellectual horizons.  Over 90 percent of colleges and universities acknowledge the reputation of Advanced Placement courses by granting incoming students college credit and/or placement in advanced classes based upon AP exam results.

Students taking AP courses at East Ridge High School are prepared to take the AP exam but also develop learning habits needed to handle more rigorous coursework, improve writing skills, and sharpen their problem-solving abilities. Because of space and personnel constraints, we are only able to offer AP exams for AP courses currently taught at ERHS.

AP designates a variety of scholar awards to students who earn a grade of 3 (out of 5) on their AP exam.
