Advanced Placement courses are college-level classes taught at PRHS by PRHS teachers with additional training and certification. Research has shown that students who participate in AP courses outperform others in college, particularly in grades and graduation rates. PRHS believes that all students deserve access to the rigor of advanced coursework and can be successful with the appropriate support. Advanced Placement course work requires students to complete in depth reading and writing assignments; research and study outside of class time to analyze the material covered in the course; to work independently and push him/herself academically and intellectually; and to engage in the study of subject matter beyond just learning facts –focusing on the analysis and the synthesis of material.
