The Advanced Placement® (AP®) program (the program is comprised of a class and an assessment) allows students to challenge themselves with college-level rigor in a high school environment. The AP class (there is a wide variety of AP Subjects) is a rigorous course that tries to approximate college level demands. Each AP Course has a national assessment associated with it. If a student performs at a certain level on the assessment, they may be eligible for college credit. The goal is to connect students to college success through allowing them to take college-level classes while still in high school.
How do I apply for College Board Accommodations for my student? 
Students who have an IEP or 504 do not automatically have College Board testing accommodations.  All paperwork is to be given to Brenda Gildo, 650-595-0210 x 30021 - SSD Coordinator at Carlmont High School.
We encourage students to submit paperwork as early as possible.
