L-W Students Take Advantage of Four New Advanced Placement Courses
Thursday, September 10, 2015

Students at each of Lincoln-Ways four high schools are taking advantage of four new Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered this year.

There are 277 students across the district enrolled in the four new AP courses including 35 students in AP Music Theory, 23 students in AP Comparative Government and Politics, 89 students in AP Environmental Science and 130 students in AP Human Geography.

Our Advanced Placement program continues to grow because students are eager to get a head start on their college career and get those college level courses under their belt early, said Tim Reilly, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum.

Lincoln-Way offers students 34 of the available 37 AP course options.

The increase in AP opportunities is part of the Board of Educations goals to ensure Lincoln-Way students have the opportunity to begin college with a competitive advantage. Additionally, when students take the AP test and earn college credit in high school, it translates into college savings, Reilly said.
