High school students earn college credit

September 16, 2009

Glendale high school students are performing better on advanced placement exams, according to officials at the Glendale Board of Education meeting held Tuesday night.

Glendale High offers AP exams in a number of courses, from physics to U.S. history. Students who score a three, four or five on the exam earn college credit, often “placing out” of college general education requirements.

Participating in AP courses can boost study habits, curiosity and, of course,  mean a head start on college, educators said.

More students taking — and passing — AP exams is also good for the district, educators said.

Interested students can ask their school about enrolling in AP courses.
