Advanced Placement
• Westwood Regional High School offers 11
AP courses.
• Scores of 3, 4, or 5 on AP tests are
comparable to an A or B in college. Such
scores will generally result in some
advantage at the college a student
attends.
What does that advantage look like?
1. College credit for a particular AP course
2. Exemption from college or university entry-level courses
3. Tuition savings – up to a year of credit may be given for
qualifying grades
4. Scheduling flexibility with more opportunity for electives
5. Eligibility for honors and other special programs
