Letter: Advanced Placement Programs

We’ve come a long way! It was only a few years ago, 2008, when Island Trees students took at total of 152 Advanced Placement (AP) exams. In 2012, we have more than doubled this amount with 342 exams. Incredibly in this same year, 2008, Island Trees students took a total of six AP exams in English.

Today this number has grown to 97. We’re very proud of the progress we have made with the AP programs. This is the program that all colleges want to see on student transcripts. Below shows how well our students performed on the 2012 exams. In fact, the results this year are stellar. This is a great testament to our students, as well as our dedicated teachers. We’re proud of their performance.

Based on next year’s schedules, we expect to have many more students challenging themselves with the most rigorous and demanding courses offered in Island Trees. We hope to continue to build upon our current success.
