Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Students at Evanston Township High School are encouraged to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses so that they will experience rigorous, college-level work in high school. For the 2014-2015 school year, ETHS will offer 29 Advanced Placement courses in seven different departments. A complete list of courses is available in the Course Selection Guide. Students and parents are urged to read the AP course descriptions to understand the level of work expected. In addition, they are encouraged to seek advice from teachers, counselors, and department chairs about which AP classes would be the best fit with their high school program and their college and career plans.
