Advanced Placement

What does Advanced Placement mean to the Montclair High School student?

Advanced Placement …

  • Offers the student the opportunity to take a college level course while in high school
  • Offers the student the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school
  • AP courses are based on a national curriculum that the teacher must follow
  • AP exams dates are set by the College Board
  • Scoring: Done on a 1-5 scale. To receive credit in a course many colleges require a 4 or 5. Check with each college you may be interested in applying to for their requirements.
  • Sitting for the AP exam is a requirement of the course.
  • Many highly selective colleges believe that the AP is a better predictor of college performance than the SAT because the AP test represents a whole year of learning while the SAT assesses a specific set of skills.
  • AP work / exam score = backstage passes
  • Selective universities / colleges will question an application if exam scores are unavailable..
