​​​​​​Welcome to Duncan's AP Website!


Students who are enrolled in AP coursework have met one or more of the criteria below that indicate a good chance of being successful in the AP program:

 * AP Potential Designation

* Scored Advanced or Proficient on Standardized Tests 

* High Grade Point Average (GPA)

* Letter Grade of A or B in prior class(es) of similar subject

* Teacher Recommendations

* Student Self-Selection



* Advanced Placement (AP) courses give students the chances to take college-level courses while in high school.

* The difference between an AP course and a regular college-prep course is that the AP curriculum moves at a faster pace, has higher expectations, a more rigorous curriculum, and offers students the ability to receive college credit by taking the AP exam in May and passing it with a 3 or higher.

* AP courses do require more study time and homework than a regular college-prep course.

* Studies show that students who take AP courses are more likely to succeed in college and earn higher GPAs.

* Students earn augmentation (0.04) added to their GPA for every A, B, or C grade they receive in an AP courses.

* AP helps your student to stand out in the college admissions process.  Colleges know that that have already been successful with college-level work.
