Beware of the AP Myth . . .

I blogged previously about the problems with AP (Advanced Placement) classes. A recent Denver Post article backed-up what we've seen to be true at Lutheran High for years. Students need not have an entire transcript of AP classes. I suspect that colleges, while certainly admiring students who challenge themselves, continue to look for those students who "stand out," which I believe is the point that the article is ultimately trying to make.

I recently had this conversation with a parent whose student was trying to decide between LHS and another school that could offer the "full AP experience."  I wonder if most parents know what that really means?
