Advanced Placement (AP)

AP logo

Advanced Placement courses are rigorous, college level academic courses taught on campus in our West Orange HS classrooms.  *Students should consult with their guidance counselor and teachers to determine if AP classes are an academic fit for their goals.


Research consistently shows that AP students are better prepared for college than students who don’t take AP, regardless of their exam score. They’re more likely to enroll and stay in college, do well in their classes, and graduate in four years.


- Provide excellent preparation for future college success.
- Offer opportunity to assimilate to college level coursework while in high school.
