Your child is currently enrolled in one or more Advanced Placement (AP) courses at MVRHS.
Our Advanced Placement Program is offered to students so that they may possibly earn college credits /course waivers and experience a rigorous college curriculum here at our high school. For this reason, the student’s commitment to this course of study must be earnest. MVRHS requires all AP students to take the corresponding AP exam(s) in the spring.
During the weeks of May 7-11, 2018 and May 14-18, 2018, we will be administering the AP exams to your child. A schedule of exams is attached. The cost for each exam is $94.00. Please make your check payable to MVRHS and indicate the name of your child / # of exam(s) being taken on the check memo line. Ask your child to bring the check to Mr. Light’s in Room 511 no later than December 11, 2017. Students enrolled in the Free/Reduced Lunch program are eligible for a discounted rate. Please email me if you would like to pursue this option. I would then verify eligibility with the school nurse and be in touch about the discounted rate.
Please plan around the testing dates/times and realize that taking the exam is required to earn the “AP” designation on the MVRHS transcript. Exams will not be rescheduled due to sports, clubs, or other extracurricular activities. Please be mindful of these dates/times. On average – an exam runs 3.5 hours. Some run shorter/longer depending on the number of sections/parts to each test. Please do not make arrangements for your child to try to make a noon ferry when testing in the morning or a 3:45 ferry when testing in the afternoon. Students can not be dismissed early. The morning exam starts at 8am and the afternoon exam starts at noon. Students are required to be in the exam room 30 minutes prior to the exam. A schedule of exam venues will be released in April and I will make every effort to proctor as many tests as possible at MVRHS.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Due to my teaching schedule, it’s best to contact me via email. Our AP students and teachers do some amazing work, and I’m looking forward to working with them in coordinating the testing program at MVRHS again this year.
