Students taking Advanced Placement are choosing to take college level classes with national college standards.  The College Board requires all teachers to submit a course syllabus which must go through an audit process to determine if their course meets college level expectations. No matter where a student takes an Advanced Placement course, the standards and expectations are the same.

Many Kentwood students have tested out of semester’s worth of college classes by taking these exams.  In the present economy, this is a savings to the parents and students entering college and universities.

In a stance to help ensure equity, currently Kentwood Public Schools pays for the exam fee for each student enrolled in an AP Course. As part of the course requirement, every student taking an AP course should plan on taking the corresponding AP Exam. Exam dates and times are scheduled by the College Board. The exams will be administered at East Kentwood High School.  2024 Exam Dates & Times
