Advanced Placement

FHS offers over 20 Advanced Placement courses—from AP Human Geography to AP Art & Design to AP Computer Science—for students who are motivated and have shown academic promise to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.

Advanced Placement Courses Can Help Students:

  • Stand out in college admissions—taking an Advanced Placement course is a sign students are ready for college
  • Earn college credits—colleges nationwide offer credit, advanced placement or both for qualifying exam scores, which can save time and money
  • Skip introductory classes—students can move directly to upper-level and major-specific courses
  • Build college skills and confidence—from problem solving to time management and more
  • Pursue interests—students can dig deeper into subjects they want to learn about
