Good luck on AP Exams!
Grier students join others nationwide this week in taking exams for Advanced Placement (AP) courses administered by the College Board. For some students, successful completion of AP courses and high scores on AP exams can open doors to higher education opportunities and merit-based scholarships. Grier wishes our academic achievers the best as they sit for these exams in the coming weeks.
About Grier's Advanced Placement Program
Grier's Advanced Placement program provides students with competitive courses that prepare students for university and college studies.
Though teachers of these courses are guided by the AP Course Descriptions, which outline the course content, describe the curricular goals of the subject, and provide sample examination questions, teachers have the flexibility to determine how this content is presented.
The AP Examinations are administered by the College Board each year in May and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a secondary school setting. Rigorously developed by committees of college and AP high school faculty, the AP Exams test students' ability to perform at a college level.
Grier’s Test Coordinator Mrs. Olivia Hallahan manages paperwork and eligibility requirements for Grier students taking Advanced Placement (AP) exams.
