American Heritage Schools Advanced Placement (AP) Testing Scores Exceeding 2022 State and Global Averages
We are excited to announce that the percentage of students who earned a 3 or above on their AP (Advanced Placement) tests is 94%*, making American Heritage Schools one of the leading college preparatory schools in the nation, in addition to being the top private school for the most National Merit Scholars and Presidential Scholars.
Once again during the 2021 - 2022 school year, American Heritage Schools’ Advancement Placement (AP) courses produced exceptional AP exam scores, exceeding the 59% state average and the global average of 65%, while the school's AP program continued its overall excellence.
Advanced Placement (AP) classes allow students to take college-level courses while still in high school. By taking these classes and scoring a three or higher on the exams administered by the College Board, students may earn college credits before graduating high school. The benefits include exempting introductory courses upon entering college which, in turn, saves money and gives students the opportunity to graduate early. It is also a great way to show colleges and universities they are motivated to succeed, ready to enroll and stay in college, and able to graduate in four years or less.
Out of a total of 38 AP subjects available, American Heritage Schools offer approximately 30 of them. The number of options offered is higher than any one student can take in their four years at AHS.
A contributing factor to our success is our faculty retention and the knowledge they impart in their classes. Some of our AP teachers have been selected by the College Board to sit on a panel that reviews questions, proofreads, and gives advice on test content.
At American Heritage Schools, the dedication and hard work of our students and faculty combined is evidence of our success.
