Our team of AP teachers are committed to a learning experience that will help your child be well prepared and feel confident about taking their exams. Please make note of the following to help your child stay informed leading up to exam day.

  • Morning exams will begin at 8:00am and afternoon exams will begin at 12:00pm. Please review the 2021 AP Exam Schedule below and calendar your child’s exam dates and times.
  • AP Exams will be paper and pencil exams taken in-person on campus and will cover the full course scope and content of each AP subject. We are working hard to ensure that all health and safety protocols are in place in order to provide the safest testing environment for all students.
  • Make sure your child has joined our “AP Students 2020-21” Google Classroom page in order to receive announcements, updates and information related to AP exams. Information and announcements will also be available on our GGHS website.

  • Prior to testing your child will receive detailed information on where to report on campus for their exams, along with a list of what they need to bring on exam day.


  • There are many benefits and advantages to taking AP exams, including but not limited to: college readiness, earning college credit, standing out in college admissions, assessing the knowledge and higher level thinking skills that your child has developed over the course of the school year.
