Advance Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement Classes at WMST:


AP classes at WMST provide students with an opportunity to receive college credit during high school. These classes are challenging, and require heightened interest and dedication on the part of our students. Besides the possibility of receiving college credit and saving money in college, many students who take AP classes perform with greater expertise in their college classes. The syllabi for these classes are approved by The College Board, and the curricula are similar to other advanced placement classes offered throughout the United States. Colleges are able to see on a student's transcript that the student was in an advanced class. In addition, students receive additional credit toward their GPA for taking the courses. 

We have heard from many of our students who now attend college that their AP experience helped them to understand their college courses and to get good grades! Those students who have passed AP exams have saved significant money. 

WMST offers AP classes in: AP English Literature and Composition, AP English Language and Composition, AP Physics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP U.S. Government, AP U.S. History
