Advanced Placement



 

Advanced Placement Classes
CHS offers advanced placement classes that are certified by the College Board. Through college-level AP (Advanced Placement) courses, you enter a universe of knowledge that might otherwise remain unexplored in high school; through AP Exams, you have the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at most of the nation’s colleges and universities. The only requirements are a strong curiosity about the subject you plan to study and a willigness to work hard. Just a few reasons to sign up: Gain the edge in college preparation, Stand out in the college admissions process, and Broaden your intellectual Horizons. Students are required to sign an AP course contract. Please understand that you will not be allowed to drop an AP course once you have enrolled in it.

Advanced Placement Classes and Class Rank
CHS Class Rank and AP: Starting with the class of 2012 Advanced Placement grades at Camas High School will be factored in the class rank on a five point scale. Rationale: Class rank is one factor considered in admission to selective colleges. Our State prohibits grading AP students on a five point grading scale but we can factor in a five point scale for the purpose of calculating class rank. This allows us to encourage students to take college level courses and alleviate some of their concern that taking these classes will adversely affect their class rank. Pre-AP classes are offered at CHS to 9th and 10th graders in the subject area of English. Students are not required to take and pass Pre-AP classes in order to enroll in AP courses. Pre-AP classes are challenging and require students to be willing and able to work hard.
