87001 - Advanced Placement Exams
The Advanced Placement Program is a national curriculum which culminates in a standardized examination in May. At Weston High School, students’ transcripts designate AP courses and grade point averages are calculated based on a weighted system in which AP courses are given a 1.0 boost. Our school profile and other supporting information indicate that, “All students in AP courses are required to take the AP exam in May.” This year, AP history exams are optional, AP Latin is optional, and the AP Statistics exam is optional for Seniors. It is still required for students in other grades. Students who register for optional exams may elect to cancel their test registration through 4/25 and are eligible for a full or partial refund.
