The Advanced Placement Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools, colleges, and universities. Since 1955, the program has provided motivated high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in the program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit while they are still in high school. Advanced Placement courses are taught by dedicated and enthusiastic high school teachers who follow course guidelines developed and published by the College Board.
The program’s success is rooted in the collaborative efforts of motivated students, dedicated teachers, and committed schools. Floral Park Memorial High School has made the commitment to organize and support classes that are equivalent to first year college courses.
