Placement Criteria

9th Grade AP Geography

AP Geography is an open-enrollment course. No placement test or teacher approval is required.

This is a college level course taught from a college text using college methodologies. Interested students are strongly encouraged to discuss the course expectations with their current social studies teacher, one of the AP Geography teachers, and/or students who are currently enrolled in the class. We also suggest you take a look at the textbook and the class syllabus, which are available from the teacher.

At the end of the school year, students will take the national AP examination in Human Geography (there is a fee to take the test). Students receiving a passing grade may be given college credit. Students who complete AP Human Geography are encouraged to go on to AP World History as sophomores.

Students will not be allowed to drop this class until the end of 1st quarter, pending teacher recommendation.
