Advanced Placement Exam Orders
AP students need to order the appropriate exams between now and January 25. Simply print the AP Exam Order Form, fill it out and return it to your AP teacher. After January 25, please see Ms. Weeks in guidance with any questions or concerns about AP exams. Note that all exams are ordered on one form, so students will be turning the form into only one teacher, even if they will be taking several exams.
