ETHS to sponsor forum on advanced placement


Everything a student should know about advanced placement courses at Evanston Township High School will be explored at a forum to be held Thursday, Dec. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s auditorium.

The annual “Pathways to AP Forum—Increasing Access and Success in Advanced Placement Courses” is designed for current freshman, sophomore, and junior students and their parents and guardians.

The forum will focus on how to access AP courses, the supports in place to help students succeed, as well as the impact of AP courses on college planning.

Plenty of opportunity will be provided for students and parents to ask questions of teachers and current and former AP students.

The Advanced Placement program was created by the College Board to offer college-level work and examinations to high school students. Many colleges grant credit to AP students who obtain high scores on the examinations.
