Former CPSB Student:
"I cannot even begin to explain how much I benefited from taking AP courses in high school. I took AP American History, Calculus, and Biology. I had to learn how to study effectively and also get used to having more of a work load.
Since I went into Pre-Veterinary medicine in college, AP Biology was of the most benefit for me. My first Biology class in college was EXACTLY what we covered in AP; there were no surprises! I definitely had to put those study skills to use, but I was glad that I had already learned the most effective study methods for me by taking AP classes.
I would advise any student with a college future to seriously consider AP classes; they make your first year of college a little easier to handle!"
