AP History

A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you'll notice the difference—in the teacher's approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you'll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

Prepare to Succeed in College

AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you'll need to be successful in college. You'll improve your writing skills,sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills,discipline, and study habits.

Earn College Credit and Placement

Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement or both on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you'll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double-major or study abroad.

Students Need to Take this Class Seriously!

It is imperative that students work to the best of their ability.  This course will require them to read and write on a regular basis in and outside the classroom. Students will be given sample questions from previous tests to familiarize themselves with the process. Most of these will be timed exercises to get them focused on time management while taking the AP Exam.
