At some high schools, Advanced Placement courses end up essentially doubling as candidate-pools for class valedictorian, with only the highest achieving students on the roster. But at Shasta Lake's Central Valley High School, anyone can sign up for the classes that double as college credit with a passed exam.
Gateway Unified School District has provided additional funding to help support AP students with their exam fees. The district recognizes the benefits and value of taking the Advanced Placement exam after students work through the rigor of their AP courses.
Congratulations to Brianna Conley for being chosen to the U.S. State Department funded Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program (CBYX). CBYX is for motivated high school students who want to fully immerse themselves in German culture by living with a host family and attending a local high school.
