Advanced Placement Exams

Students in Advanced Placement courses will be testing next week and the following week. Bulletins for AP Students and Parents were given to all students who will be testing. Take some time to sit down and review the exam dates and times. Students taking the AP English Language exam on Wednesday, May 16th will be required to be at Gamble by 8:00 a.m. Students will begin testing no later than 8:15 a.m. This is earlier than the regular school start time, so please make arrangements for transportation that day. Students will not be able to join the test after it has begun. Also, take a moment to review what to bring to the exam, and what NOT to bring to the exam. No electronic devices among other things will be allowed into the exam. Lastly, AP exams may last up to 3 1/2 hours, so make sure your child has a healthy breakfast the day of the test!
