HISD’s Innovation and Postsecondary Programming will host Advanced Placement Parent Night— an informational event where parents can learn more about AP courses at HISD.
The event will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29, at Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W 18th St. Houston 77092).
All HISD middle and high schools offer advanced-level coursework designed to prepare students for success in college. During the 2017-2018 school year, 10,242 HISD students received college credit by scoring well on their AP exams, saving their families $11,782,500 in college tuition. Both AP and pre-AP courses leverage rigorous instruction to help students become independent learners.
AP specialists, AP teachers, and former AP students will be on hand to answer questions, including:
- What is an AP course?
- What are the benefits of taking AP courses?
- Which AP courses should my student take?
- How can my student prepare for the rigor of AP?
The event is free and open to all parents with students in grades 6-11. Please note that childcare will not be provided.
