The Pros and Cons of taking an AP Course

AP course has become a part of our curriculum at Alden high school for many years. They offered in U.S. high schools under the College Board with good intentions. The idea goes back to the 1950s.

Advanced Placement (AP) classes are a fantastic way to show academic rigor in your schedule and impress college admissions officers. AP classes offer more of a challenge than a general or core class and often are considered difficult but rewarding by students who take them.
