Students, teachers prepare for upcoming AP exams

HISD Advanced Placement students and teachers are invited to attend AP: The Countdown to help prepare for Advanced Placement exam season.

AP: The Countdown will take place at Energy Institute High School from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 30. Throughout the morning, students and teachers will participate in three different review sessions aimed at helping them feel confident and prepared for AP exam season.

The event is free, open to all HISD AP students and teachers, and breakfast will be provided. Students should bring a notebook, a pencil, and a laptop. In addition, transportation will be available at select schools.

Advanced Placement coursework prepares students for college and careers. Students can earn college credit hours and save thousands of dollars in college tuition when they earn a three or higher on AP exams.

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. AP courses leverage rigorous instruction to help students become independent learners.

Students should register here by March 27. Teachers can register via OneSource using Course Code #927001.
