AP English Language & Composition 2020 Success Story

The Advanced Placement Program® (AP) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. The program consists of college-level courses developed by the AP Program that high schools can choose to offer, and corresponding exams that are administered once a year.

AP Courses offered at RHHS:

  • AP English Language & Composition (score 3= ENG 101, score 4= ENG 101 & ENG 102)
  • AP Psychology
  • AP Human Geography
  • AP US History

Taking AP courses and exams can help students:

  • Stand out on college applications. AP courses on a student’s transcript shows that they have challenged themselves with the most rigorous courses available to them. Success on an AP Exam shows that they are ready for college-level coursework.
  • Earn college credit and/or skip introductory courses in college. Most four-year colleges and universities in the United States grant students credit, placement, or both for qualifying AP Exam scores. 
  • More likely to continue beyond their freshman year in college
  • More likely to graduate within 4-5 years
  • More competitive in qualifying for scholarships

How It Works

  • AP teachers design their own syllabi and each course design is reviewed through a process called the AP Course Audit.
  • Students must be on A/B Honor Roll & must be recommended by the guidance counselor to be enrolled.

AP Exam

Each AP course concludes with an AP Exam created by the expert College Board committee. The exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5 by college and university professors and experienced AP teachers. Many U.S. colleges offer credit for AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.
