Accessing Your AP Scores

Sending AP Scores to Colleges

The Advanced Placement (AP) program at Minnetonka High School can change your life. Minnetonka offers more than 30 AP, college-level courses through which you enter a universe of knowledge that might otherwise remain unexplored in high school. Through AP Exams, you have the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at most of the nation's colleges and universities.

Research is clear. Students who take college-level courses (AP/IB) while still in high school are more likely to complete their college degree. Currently, 70 percent of Minnetonka students take at least one AP or IB course their senior year.

How do I enroll?

Once you've decided to take the AP challenge, it's easy to enroll. If you have any questions, talk to your current teachers, an AP teacher, your guidance counselor, or Laura Herbst, Advanced Learning Coordinator, about the course(s) you want to take. Discuss the course workload and any preparation you may need.

Minnetonka High School offers AP courses in English literature and composition, three world languages, social sciences, history, sciences, mathematics, and the arts. Depending on AP exam scores and each university's AP credit policy, it's possible that students may earn college credit.
