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.

If you would like to take an exam for an AP course not offered at East Ridge High School, please contact Beth Salmon, AP Coordinator, via email by January 31, 2018. We would like to facilitate your testing, if possible. Homeschool students may participate in our AP testing, but please contact us (by January 31) prior to registering for a test for individualized instructions.

 

AP Exams will be taken at East Ridge High School in May 2018. We highly recommend that all students in AP classes push themselves and take the corresponding end of course AP test. Taking an AP exam allows students an opportunity to experience a college level exam while still in high school. Scoring well may provide students with more options in college, such as upper level courses, double majors, or time for study abroad. A passing score of 3, 4, or 5 allows a student to earn college credit for the class.
