"There is a vast variety of AP courses that students can pick from. Getting college credit and being exposed to more advanced courses is incredibly important for your own growth. It may be a little challenging at first, but that’s OK. People only learn when they’re challenged. Think of taking AP courses as an investment in your own future."
