AP classes allow students to experience a college-level course while still in high school. Forest Hills offers a variety of AP classes in all 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 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. Historically, most do, and the overwhelming majority score 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.
In addition, students scoring a 4 or 5 on a world language AP exam qualify for the Michigan Seal of Biliteracy.
