AP & Honors

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are becoming more competitive and desirable at Medical Lake High School. While we would like to be able to offer enough seats for any student interested in taking an AP course, we are unable to do so at this time and therefore are using a short application and contract to select participants. These applications will be used when there are over 30 applicants wanting the same course.

The Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors classes are intended to challenge students and prepare them for the rigors of college. In addition, AP courses and exams provide students with the possibility of earning college credits and strengthen student’s transcripts prior to the college admission process. In order to receive these added academic benefits, it is expected that students will subscribe to the following:

  • I understand that the academic rigor and teacher expectations will be higher than regular classes.
  • I understand that I must obtain and fully complete the summer assignments which are distributed by the content teachers.
  • I understand that I must be self-motivated and be committed to study independently beyond class time and given assignments.
  • I understand that the class includes the expectation of my registering for and taking the AP exam in the spring. The cost of each exam varies by year, but is approximately $90.00/exam. There are reduced costs for students on free/reduced lunch.
  • I understand that I can’t drop the AP or Honors course in the fall, as I may be taking a spot from someone else.
