The philosophy at Berkeley is that the AP®
courses should be taught at the college level, as intended by the College Board®
, and as expected by the colleges. It is for this reason that the majority of our AP®
classes are available to junior and senior students; it is a rare freshman or sophomore in high school who is prepared to successfully master the material in a college-level course. Therefore, our curriculum in grades 9, 10 and 11 is designed to build a foundation for students that lead to readiness for AP®
success. It is an approach that has been highly successful for our students and school.
在保持符合大学水平课程的严格入学要求的同时，我们开设了AP课程® courses more accessible to qualified students. Since 2015, the number of students taking at least one AP® exam has increased by almost 20%. In 2019, 295 students took at least one AP® exam and we administered 800 exams. The increased accessibility of AP® courses continues to be accompanied by an impressively high level of performance on the AP® exams. Over the past five years, as we have continued to increase access to the AP® courses, Berkeley students have taken more than 3,600 AP® exams and achieved an incredible 86% pass rate. 学生们将在十大赌博靠谱网站平台大学提供给他们的课程背景下接受大学读者的评估，并始终受益于我们在全国享有的良好声誉.
At the same time, 我们抵制任何自满的诱惑，而是继续站在围绕美联社的利益问题的最前沿® program; we continuously evaluate and research our program and make changes that are in the best interests of our students, their education and the college process. In addition, 我们鼓励家长和学生与十大赌博靠谱网站平台的学术顾问密切合作，以确保一个具有挑战性的时间表，学生可以在学业上取得成功.
At Berkeley, we require all AP® students to take the exam as part of their commitment to the course. Our college counselors are sometimes asked about the importance of the AP® 考试成绩(考虑到考试在年底举行)和大学对课程结果的实际兴趣程度. Again, the reality is that colleges and universities consider the strength of a school’s AP® 在确定学生课程选择的优点和学术时间表的严谨性时，计划. If the school’s “pass rate” is low, the assumption can be that the AP® courses taught are of questionable rigor; in such a scenario, the number of Advanced Placement® 学生成绩单上的课程对录取结果的影响要小得多.
