LAHS hosts AP Night for students, parents

-A A +A

By Katherine Wang

Los Alamos High School hosted its annual Advanced Placement (AP) Night on Feb. 11. The event gave students and their parents, insight into the 21 AP courses offered every year, including foreign language, science, English, history, art and music.
The LAHS AP program is available to challenge sophomores, juniors and seniors who want to learn more in depth material about the subjects they love. Courses are not offered to freshman. The classes often place teens in environments that mimic what they will experience in college.
Students who participate in the AP program are noted to do better at the university level.
At the end of each school year high school students take AP exams for the courses they applied for to test how well they understand the material. The test is scored on a scale from one to five with one being the lowest, five being the highest. Depending on the school a student applies to, he or she is often able to get college credit as long as he or she passes the test with a score of three or higher.
Students who tackle AP courses must have self-discipline and drive. “I expect my AP students to work hard and have their eyes wide open to learn about how to survive at the college level with a rigorous college curriculum,” AP German teacher Anita Boshier said.
