All Princeton High School students in enrolled in AP classes were required to take the AP exams this year. However, students in past years were not required to take the AP exam when taking an AP course.
The new policy was implemented by Principal James Lovelady and came as a result of low AP exam participation in recent years.
“The definition of success is out there,” Mr. Lovelady said. “Students will be more successful in college as a result of taking the AP exams. I think that kids focusing on preparing for the test will make them pay more attention. That and the tougher curriculum will help them be more ready. They will try harder in order to pass the exam, which in result will help them get better study habits for college.”
Editor’s note: Each year the students in the journalism program at PHS finish the course by writing press releases. The class partners with The Princeton Herald to publish the stories.
