Advanced Placement or 'AP' courses that were taken in the 2016-17 school year included: AP Literature & Composition, AP U.S. History, and AP Psychology. In addition to the requirements of the class taken, students may opt to take an optional AP exam. Exams are administered in May and reflect a level of achievement in the college-level course.
An AP score is used by colleges and universities to determine if credit will be granted for what has been learned. The score is reported on a 5-point scale with '5' as extremely well qualified.
FDSH offers AP classes online. All students who opted to take the AP exam have earned a '3' or higher.
