Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement courses at Heritage High School cover a wide variety of disciplines and are open to all students. All students are encouraged to take at least one AP course during their high school career.
Advanced Placement courses are taught at a college level and require excellent organization skills, strong study habits, the ability to work independently, and a high level of academic commitment. Students may spend substantial time outside of class preparing assignments, reading, and writing papers.
Because we recognize that students need support in making the transition into Advanced Placement courses, AP teachers are committed to working with students to assist them in building the skills that are essential to their success in these courses.
