Advanced Placement (AP) course

Advanced Placement (AP) is an educational project established by the American College Examination Board (CEEB), which is highly recognized by many prestigious schools in Canada and the United States. This course is designed to provide college-level difficulty course experience for capable high school students in North America, improve students' academic skills, expand subject knowledge and subject recognition, and help students adapt to the courses and life of North American universities in advance. In addition, while improving the academic competitiveness of high school students applying to prestigious schools, it can also shorten the time required to complete the university, thereby saving university fees.

AP offers 37 courses equivalent to the first-year university level, covering science, culture, art and other subjects. After passing the 9-month study (September to May), students take the exam organized and organized by the College Board​. Registration for the exam starts in March each year, is held in May, and the results are announced in July. ​The length of the exam varies according to different subjects, generally 2 to 3 hours.

AP test scores are based on a 5-point system, with 1 point being the lowest and 5 points being the highest. Under normal circumstances, scores of 3 points or above can be exchanged for corresponding credits at the university. Some prestigious schools in Canada accept scores of 4 or more.​

In recent years, because Canadian universities have generally used the performance of their students in the AP exam as a basis for measuring their ability to be qualified for university study, AP exam scores have become one of the most important basis for admission considerations in many universities. In addition, this is also a great opportunity for scholarships for students with outstanding academic performance.

The school currently offers seven courses including AP Calculus, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, AP Economics, AP Computer, and AP Psychology. It is recommended that students in grades 11 or 12 can choose one or more courses according to their abilities .
