Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement is a set of nationally recognized courses that prepare students for college-level coursework. Students who take Advanced Placement courses in high school are better prepared for the rigors of college classes and possibly earn college credit if they score well on the national exam (credit varies depending on college/ university). Taking AP courses helps students improve their academic record on college applications and show colleges that they are ready for college level work. Those who take AP classes are highly encouraged to take the national exam administered at the end of the school year. Passing the AP exam can also count toward college credit. Eastlake High School offers a variety of Advanced Placement (AP) courses in different subject areas. It is highly recommended that students check with their college(s) of interest regarding the school’s policy on AP credits.
AP Exam Ordering
Ordering of exams is now during the fall semester. Students need to be enrolled in a class section online before placing an order. AP teachers will be providing students with a join code and instructions on how to join a section.
