Advanced Placement


The College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) Program provides students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit, Advanced Placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams.

AP courses are offered at Horlick, Park and Walden III High Schools. Students from Case and REAL High Schools may take AP courses at Horlick, Park or Walden III. In addition, AP courses are offered through RUSD's Virtual Learning. To learn more about Virtual Learning, call (262) 664-8734.

RUSD offers many AP courses that cover a wide variety of academic areas and potential career and post-secondary interests. Examples include: psychology, U.S. government and politics, world history, microeconomics, physics, biology, chemistry, studio art, calculus, statistics, English language and composition, English literature and composition, Spanish and French.

Students enrolled in AP courses have an opportunity to take Advanced Placement exams in May of each year. The cost for each exam is the responsibility of the student. There may be assistance to help students with the cost of the exams. See your counselor for more information.
