AP Program

A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you'll notice the difference—in the teacher's approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you'll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

Find Your Passion

With over 20 AP courses to choose from at Aloha High School, you’ll be able to explore your interests and discover new passions. In AP classes, you'll study fascinating topics and ideas that just might become the foundation of your future college major or career.

Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID)

The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized certificate for students with an international outlook. Aloha High School is the only school in the Beaverton School District that offers the curriculum that allows students to graduate with an AP International Diploma. The APID challenges a student to display exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines. Universities worldwide utilize the APID in admissions. Students may search AP International Recognition for universities outside the U.S. that acknowledge AP achievement.

Prepare to Succeed in College

AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you'll need to be successful in college. You'll improve your writing skills, sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills, discipline, and study habits.

AP Grade Change Petition

Periodically, students will earn a qualifying score (3,4, or 5) on a an AP National Exam, and they believe this is more representative of their learning than the letter grade they received in their AP class. In this case, students may petition for a grade change.

To petition for a grade change, please print out the‚Äč AP Grade Change Petition‚Äč form, staple your word processed/typed rationale to this form and return it to Mrs. Townsley, the AP Coordinator, in the Counseling Office. A decision will then be made whether to approve your request, and you will be informed of your teacher’s decision. One petition must be completed for each AP class for which a change is being requested.
