AP--The College Board's Advanced Placement Program
**Eighty-five percent of selective colleges and universities report that a student’s AP experience favorably impacts admission decisions.
Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses offered in high school. They give students a taste of what college is like and can help him or her stand out on college applications. Scoring well on AP exams also can earn a student college credit, placement out of introductory courses or both, potentially saving thousands of dollars in tuition in fees. GHS has a strong AP program with teachers trained by The College Board.
