Advanced Placement Program of Niceville High School

alt=""The Advanced Placement Program® is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. Since its inception in 1955, the Program has provided motivated high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in the Program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit by scoring a 3 or higher on the AP exam at the end of the course.  AP courses are taught by dedicated and enthusiastic high school teachers who follow course guidelines developed and published by the College Board.  Visit www.collegeboard.com/parents for additional information.

Advanced Placement Notes

Only the College Board can approve special accommodations for AP exams; however, we can provide you with the appropriate form to initiate the process.  It is the student’s responsibility to complete the form and submit it to the ESE/504 counselor, your teacher, or the Advanced Studies coordinator.  Requests for accommodations cannot be initiated by school officials and are not accepted by the College Board.  However, once we receive the request form, we will send College Board the appropriate paperwork.  We will then be notified by the College Board whether or not the student has been approved for any accommodations. A student must have an active IEP or 504 plan in order to be eligible. Please contact your counselor, teacher or the AP Coordinator if you have specific questions.

All students enrolled in an AP course must sit for the AP exam at the end of the course, per Niceville High School requirements.
