All seniors must provide proof of receiving a single dose of TDAP vaccine and a booster dose of the meningococcal vaccine if the first dose was given before the age of 16. This must be provided by first day of school. This is required regardless of in school or virtual attendance.  Seniors will also need to provide proof of a dental and well child exam that has been within the last year. It must have been within one year of the day of enrollment. THERE WILL BE A 45 DAY GRACE PERIOD FOR EXAMINATIONS BUT NOT FOR IMMUNIZATIONS!

Additionally, Seniors will not be allowed to participate in any extracurricular practices or games after the first day of school if we have not received proof of immunizations!

Exam Scoring & Granting of College Credit or Advanced Program Placement

Each May, students take an AP Course Exam which will determine what (if any) college credits or advanced program placement they will receive.

The AP exam score is a weighted combination of the student’s scores on the multiple-choice section and the free-response sections. The final score is reported on a 5-point scale:*

                5(pass) = Extremely well qualified

                4(pass) = Well qualified

                3(pass) = Qualified

                2(not pass) = Possibly qualified

                1(not pass) = No recommendation

*Colleges and universities are responsible for setting their own credit and placement policies

For most students, results indicate:

 AP Exam Score                  Grade equivalent in corresponding college courses

                5                                          A+ and A

                4                                          A-, B+ and B
