Suggested Criteria for Student Success in AP and Pre-AP Courses
The College Board maintains equitable access as a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. It is their policy that students should have access to academically challenging course work before they enroll in AP courses, which will help prepare them for AP success.
Willis ISD echoes that policy, and has suggested criteria for success to support all students willing to partake in a Pre-AP or AP coursework:
- Pass previous school year state assessment (STAAR or EOC)
- Positive teacher recommendation
- Read on grade-level or above
- Meet 90%+ attendance requirement
- Maintain 80-85% grade average in core content courses [High School 80%, Middle School 85% in core content courses]
