Advanced Placement courses are college level courses taught in high schools throughout the country. The College Board establishes curriculum content, and students have the opportunity to take a year-end exam which may qualify them for college credit. Sprayberry High School offers 21 different AP courses in the areas of Fine Arts, English, Mathematics, Science, Career / Technology, Foreign Language, and Social Studies.
Approximately 30% of Students take at least one AP course at SHS, and almost 60% of students who take an AP exam at Sprayberry end up earning a score of THREE (3) or Higher on the Exam (this EXCEEDS the state average).
For more information regarding the AP Program, please contact Dr. Jim Bishop, SHS AP Coordinator.
