AP classes an expensive consideration for some districts — But results justify effort
from Education DIVE
Advanced Placement courses are a chance for students to test their abilities beyond what's offered in a traditional high-school curriculum. They are meant to be a college course taught in a high school environment, as passing an AP test can give students college credit for the course and potentially lower the cost of a college education. There is also an added benefit for all students who take and pass AP classes in high school of earning higher ACT scores, according to a 2015 study published in The Journal of Educational Research.
