Advanced Placement students perform at a college level
Grier's Advanced Placement program provides students with competitive courses that prepare students for university and college studies. These courses are taught by teachers guided by the AP Course Descriptions, which outlines the course content, describes the curricular goals of the subject, and provides sample examination questions. While 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 manages paperwork and eligibility requirements for Grier students taking Advanced Placement (AP) exams.
