Information

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.

FAQ's

How many AP courses should my student take?

Carlmont High School does not have any AP Course offerings for 9th graders. 
We follow this practice based on two factors:  
1. Student stress  - our focus has been on students successfully transitioning to the high school environment without the additional stress of attempting college-level coursework and expectations. 
2.  Student success rates - given the advanced thematic nature of many AP courses, students are able to better appreciate the course material, and consequently  score higher on the AP scale by attempting the course in their sophomore, junior or senior year.
