AP COURSE PROCESS
This year the AP placement process has changed. There are no AP Commitment Contracts for core classes. Current teachers of core classes (math, science, language arts, and select social studies) will make all placement recommendations for the next level AP course in their content area. If you are interested in doubling up in a certain content area you must let your current teacher know to place you in two AP courses. For example, if you are interested in taking AP Biology and AP Environmental Science, you would need to let your current science teacher know. Teachers will be placing students based on our published prerequisite grades in the 2020-2021 curriculum guide. Please reference the curriculum guide posted above if you have any questions.
If you currently do not have the prerequisite grade for your desired AP course, you must submit a course waiver by April 17th. All waivers will be reviewed, and students meeting the prerequisite grade at the 12 week mark will be placed provided there are seats available. A third review of all waivers will take place at the end of the school year once final grades are posted. All students meeting the prerequisite grade at the end of the school year will be placed provided there are seats available.
The following courses are considered electives and may require an AP Commitment Contract for placement if you are not currently enrolled in a course where a teacher can complete the recommendation.
AP Computer Science Principles
AP Computer Science A (if you are not currently enrolled in APCS Principles)
If you have any questions regarding the AP placement process please speak with your teacher or counselor prior to the January 30th deadline.
Math Progression Options:
Fulton County has published a math progression flow chart for Fulton County math. You can use this chart to understand how your math classes should progress. Please note that Northview does not offer Honors only classes. All Northview Honors classes are also accelerated, so if you are looking for an Honors track, follow the flow chart for Accelerated courses.
