While Carlmont has an open-enrollment policy in regard to advanced courses, being successful requires students to dedicate themselves to the rigor of AS/AP English. When considering overriding placement recommendations, please note the following:
Successful Advanced English students demonstrate reading and writing skills well above grade level. With that in mind, the focus of these courses is more on content than on skill-building.
Please note: Four-year colleges do not accept D or F grades for credit and AS/AP classes are not offered in summer school. Students who fail an AS/AP course will need to make up the course credits; however, the original grade of D or F will remain on the transcript and calculated into the grade point average (GPA). Because of limited summer resources, students earning a D may not be able to make up the course.
The AS/AP English curricula are designed to prepare students to take Advanced Placement (AP) English exam(s) during 12th grade. AP courses are college-level courses. There are only three years to prepare students for AP classes, thus the instructional pace in AS English is rapid and the focus is primarily on analytical writing and critical thinking. Grades are based primarily on writing assignments and projects. High-level participation and nightly homework completion are expected of all AS/AP English students.
AS English students can expect to read approximately twenty to twenty-five pages per night in addition to having other English homework and homework for other courses.
Late work is not accepted (except for excused illness and Special Education considerations).
