Accessing Your AP Scores

Sending AP Scores to Colleges

AP can change your life. Minnetonka High School offers more than 20 Advanced Placement, 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.

Why Participate?

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 the AP Coordinator Dr. Ann Swanson about the course(s) you want to take. Discuss the course workload and any preparation you may need.

Minnetonka High School offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses in literature, composition, two world languages, social sciences, history, sciences, mathematics, and the arts.  Depending on student scores on the AP exam as well as their university's AP credit policy, it's possible that students may earn college credit.
