Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement Program promotes academic excellence in high schools by developing college-level course curricula and assessments for high school students.

Advanced Placement offers comprehensive examinations in more than 30 subject areas that correspond to AP course descriptions. In addition to the attraction of the rigor and challenge of the curricula, the courses have also become popular because students often earn college credit for success in the examinations.

In addition, students are able to take exams in other areas even if HHS does not offer the corresponding AP course.
