ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM
AP is Canada’s largest enrichment program. This challenging and rewarding program is designed to provide motivated high school students with university-level academic courses. AP is considered a standard for academic excellence in Canada, the United States, and around the world. The AP courses give students intellectual responsibility to think for themselves and learn to reason, analyze, and understand.
Students can choose to take one or several AP courses. Exposure to higher level materials taught in the Advanced Placement courses prepares students to do extremely well on diploma exams.
Currently, HHHS offers AP courses in Art, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Chinese, English, Physics, Psychology, and World History. We also offer an option of taking the French AP exam and Spanish AP exam at the end of French 31A or Spanish 30-6Y.
