  •  AP courses are meant to be the top end (0+ / 0-)

    of high school courses, you normally take them after you take all other courses in a subject.  If a high school only offers AP courses, what happens to those students that are not ready for that level of the subject....answer they get left behind or they transfer to another school.  Wella, you have nothing but geniuses attending your school...you must be doing a great job.

      you don't have to take all the other courses, you simply test into the class.  At least, that's how it worked in my high school, a bazillion years ago, it seems.  (1981 grad)

      I went from regular 9th grade classes to AP everything, except the dreaded math, via testing.
