Advanced Placement (AP)

Perth Amboy High School is offering the following advanced placement courses for the 2011-2012 school year:
  • AP Language and Composition
  • AP Literature and Composition
  • AP Calculus AB
  • AP Calculus BC
  • Biology-AP
  • Chemistry-AP
  • Environmental Science-AP
  • AP US History
  • AP Psychology
  • AP Government and Politics
  • AP World History
  • French AP
  • Spanish AP 
AP courses are taught by highly qualified high school teachers who use the AP Course Descriptions to guide them. The Course Description for each discipline outlines the course content, describes the curricular goals of the subject, and provides sample examination questions. While the Course Descriptions are a significant source of information about the course content on which the AP Exams will be based, AP teachers have the flexibility to determine how this content is presented. Published in the spring of the school year before the course will be taught, the Course Descriptions are available in this section of AP Central, accompanied by a course perspective written by an experienced AP teacher. These perspectives represent the personal viewpoints and teaching styles of their authors; however, we hope they will provide insight and inspiration for other educators.
AP Exams will be given in May. Please speak with a guidance counselor for more details.
