There seems to be some misinformation floating around concerning AP courses at Benjamin Franklin High School and I hope to clear up any confusion. We currently have two AP offerings for our sophomores - AP Biology and AP European History. We are very proud that from our 43 current tenth graders, the combined enrollment for these course is 27. Next school year, as our students continue to roll up into their junior year, we will be offering AP 11 English, AP United States History and AP Chemistry. For the 2015-2016 school year, we will be offering AP 12 English, AP Government/Economics, AP Calculus, AP Physics, as well as the possibility of AP offerings in Art History and Music Theory. By the time our first crop of seniors graduates, they will have had the opportunity to take a minimum of nine AP courses. We are a college prep school with the goal of providing opportunities to our students that are limited only by their imagination, hard work, and desire. Oftentimes in life when a new and better option comes along, competitors and detractors will try to spread misleading information or downright untruths. If you have not had the opportunity to attend an orientation in order to get a clearer picture of our vision for our students, please plan on attending on either February 11th or March 5th at 6:30pm. Attached you will find our curriculum maps in order that you may peruse them for yourself.
