PTHS has a strong history of success in our AP curriculum, with 91% of students averaging a score of 3 or higher on their exams. Our teachers have a wealth of experience teaching these courses, with three teachers serving as AP Scorers and one as an AP Table Leader. 
 

AP and the National Math and Science Initiative

As one of the highest performing high schools in the state, it is our goal to continue to offer a rigorous breadth of coursework for ALL students. This means preparing more students for advanced academic work at the honors and Advanced Placement (AP) levels. Whether it is one class or many, participation in AP courses significantly improves a student’s college readiness. To help meet that goal, we have partnered with the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) to provide robust training for our staff and incentives to our students. Students will have access to the best instruction, additional tutoring, and monetary incentives. Click here to learn more about NMSI.
