AP Exam Information

AP Exam season is almost here! From May 6-17, Green Level High School will be hosting 1,643 students taking over 4,393 Advanced Placement exams with the hopes of gaining college credits with successful exam scores. While this time comes with excitement to show what a student has worked on in their AP class, it also can come with challenges. Please help your child balance academics with self-care - especially with sleeping well, eating healthy meals, and coming prepared. It's almost time to show what they know!


This week in Connectivity, students taking a digital AP exam (World History, US History, English Language, English Literature and Computer Science Principles) MUST sign up for AP Digital Exam Readiness session. Student must attend ONE session (Tuesday through Friday, April 16-19) and bring their charged Chromebook to verify their device is exam ready. Students should sign up in AllTimely and look for Ms. Roberts' name. If your child does not attend one of these sessions, and has a digital exam, they will not be able to take their exam in May as their device will not be compatible. This setup is mandatory for all AP Digital Exam takers. Your child also received an email with this information. 


In the coming weeks leading up to AP exams, please note the following information:

  • Each student will get an email full of information the day before their scheduled exam. The email will go to the email address that is in the AP Classroom so please have them check both WCPSS student email and personal email boxes. This email will have locations, reminders, prohibited items, and links to so much more. Please make sure students are on time - 7:25 am for morning exams and 11:30 am for afternoon exams or they will miss the opportunity to sit for the exam. The exam administration window can be up to four hours so please have transportation arrangements for the afternoon exams as buses will not run late for AP students - students will contact parents when exams are complete - no student can leave an exam early. AP exams follow CollegeBoard policy which is more strict and restrictive - please plan around your child's scheduled AP exam. If your child does not choose to take their AP exam, CollegeBoard charges a fee of $40 for a canceled exam.
  • Students will be marked excused while they are in testing. If it is a morning exam, they are excused from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd period classes with the expectation to attend 4th period. If it is an afternoon exam, students are expected to be present in 1st and 2nd periods and excused absent for 3rd and 4th. If students have back-to-back exams, one in the morning and the afternoon of the same day, they need to pack a lunch to eat between the exams - they will not have time to leave campus for lunch - and their second exam will not start without them. CollegeBoard policy states students can take two exams in one day.

If you have additional questions about AP exams, please see our AP Exam Administration website (this includes the full AP exam schedule, what to bring/not to bring, sample emails, what to expect on test day, and more) or contact our AP Coordinator and Dean of Students, Hamilton Roberts at

The survey includes questions about teacher-student relationships, relevance of school work, and future aspirations and goals. The results of this survey help schools monitor their School Improvement Plans, and help the district track student perceptions about their educational experiences. The survey is available now through May 31.  We would like all students at GLHS to have the opportunity to take the survey which can be accessed through each student’s WakeID portal.

The survey administration language can be chosen by families before taking the survey.

There is a hard deadline for changes of May 31 by 3pm - after this date, we will start the process of preparing for schedules to be made in the summer. Please make sure to request any changes prior to this date - as the course correction window when we return in August is not guaranteed. We build the master schedule based on requests, so this is how your child has the best chance of getting their course selections. Thank you for your understanding!
