AP classes allow students to experience a college-level course while still in high school. Forest Hills offers a variety of AP classes at its three high schools. In keeping with our vision of “All learners achieving individual potential,” our Guiding Principles, and the College Board’s Equity and Access Policy Statement, we provide all willing students the opportunity to participate in AP classes.
We encourage students to take the AP exam in their subject but do not require them to do so. In 2015, 870 of our students took 1,525 exams, and the overwhelming majority scored above state, national, and global averages. While each college and university determines its own criteria, many of our students are able to obtain credit, advanced placement, or both with scores of three or higher.
