Sequencing
PreAP curricula are above grade level.
Students should be independent learners; instruction is fast paced, in-depth, complex, and abstract.
Much of the work is done outside of class.
An A or B in the subject area indicates that the student has the academic ability and the task commitment to succeed.
Once enrolled, students must remain in the course for
SIX WEEKS
before a schedule change is considered.
For additional considerations, see your campus counselor.
