Advice from AP Students
“AP courses fill a void in the
sense that they provide an
opportunity for learning for
the sake of learning, by
encouraging students to
tackle subject matter beyond
strict educational
requirements. In this way, AP
acts as a sort of outlet for
intellectual curiosity and
higher order thinking while
also providing a strong
foundation for university
studies”
McGill, Science
“Take as many AP’s as you
can. For courses related to
your intended field of studies,
it’s much better to learn the
material for the first time in a
small high school class
environment than in a lecture
hall with 600 other people.
For areas which you don’t
intend to pursue in depth,
this could be your last
opportunity to learn
something new and
interesting. ”
McGill, History/Psychology
