Lassen High School offers a variety of AP courses and gives our students a large discount on ordering the tests themselves. Advanced Placement (AP) classes provide the most rigorous level of coursework offered at Lassen High School. According to data collected by the College Board, a high school curriculum of high intensity and quality, such as that found in AP courses, has the strongest correlation to bachelor’s degree completion. Studies found that 85% of those who took AP courses continued their education after high school. Additionally, research has shown that students who participate in AP classes in high school receive average grades better than 3.0 in college. AP classes require some special attributes if students are to succeed. To find out more or to see if your student qualifies contact the Counseling Department.
