ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) & HONORS

  • MSHS offers 4 Honors and 24 Advanced Placement (AP) courses.  Both course types allow students to move at a faster pace and go further into depth about a subject in which students are interested.  Some Honors and AP courses require students to complete an assignment the summer before classes begin (see below course list).

     

    Benefits of AP Courses

    AP classes are college-level courses taught in high school.  Students may earn college credit by taking the corresponding AP exam and obtaining a credit-qualifying score (qualifying scores may differ by college/university).  Taking AP courses benefits students in the following ways:

    • Standing out in the college admissions process
    • Earn college credits (AP Credit Policy Database)
    • Skip introductory classes
    • Build college skills

    Additional information can be found at the College Board Website.
