Rich South High School advanced placement students recently took their AP exams.
A score of 3.0 or more garnered college credit that students can apply to their future college enrollment to reduce the number of classes they have to take, therefore reducing the amount of tuition they have to pay.
“I take AP classes to get a feel for what college courses consist of, to challenge my learning ability and to possibly earn a few college credits,” said student Jasmyne Gooden. “Also so my parents can be proud of me.”
Students put in additional time before and after school in study sessions to improve their chances of scoring a 3 or better on the AP exam.
Jennifer Bednardczyk, associate principal for teaching and learning at Rich South, said requests for AP exams have almost doubled this year over that of last year.
