  • The AP Potential and Course Selection Process

    1. At the end of last semester all of the PSAT reports were available online for students at each grade level.
    2. After getting the results, the College Board identifies students who have potential for success in AP and IB courses.
    3. GOHS has generated letters for these students which identify the courses in which the College Board has recognized an aptitude for an AP or IB course.
    4. These letters were mailed home.  They were also passed out to students through their English courses.
    5. For the next four weeks, GOHS AP and IB teachers will be hosting interventions in the Performing Arts Center to showcase their courses and to provide students with a strong sense of what the course is about and what it entails.
    6. The link to the schedule of these interventions is below.  It is subject to change, so please check it before the week begins.
    7. ANY INTERESTED STUDENT may attend these interventions.  It is NOT limited to students who received a letter.  There are many reasons a student may not have received a letter, and it does not necessarily mean that a student wouldn't be successful in an AP course - most especially if they take an AP or IB course they are interested in.

    AP Potential Schedule for Students and Parents

    What to do when you get a letter or think you want to enroll in an AP or IB course (s):

    1. Attend the intervention correlated with that course.  You do not need an intervention ticket.
    2. Go into your Academic Plan on Infinite Campus and choose the AP course you have decided to take.
    3. Consider scheduling a meeting with your grade-level counselor or the AP/IB coordinator to look at a four-year schedule. You may take two courses next year and two the following.  They do not all have to occur in the same year.  They can just become a part of your four-year plan.
    4. Download the AP/IB form from the counseling website to be signed by student and parent.
    5. Return form to counseling when classes are audited.

    *Counselors will be going through the enrollment process with students in February.
