New! AP Test Date Changes: Due to the six snow days and lost teaching time, the following AP test dates have been changed. All other test times and dates will remain the same.
US History (APUSH)-May 17, Wednesday, 7:45 AM; Environmental Science (APES)-May 17, Wednesday, 11:45 AM; Calculus AB & BC-May 18, Thursday, 7:45 AM; Biology-May 19, Friday, 11:45 AM.
In making these changes, we hoped to optimize student learning and minimize additional stress, minimize and avoid double test days caused by late testing, and stay aligned and consistent with CHS testing while still avoiding known student conflicts (eg. State choir/band, State track, State tennis, etc.) If this change causes a testing conflict for you, see Mrs. Beamer as soon as possible.
AP Exams - Register NOW! To register for one or more AP exams, students must bring a non-refundable $15 per-exam deposit to the Career Center from February 22-March 16.
