The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a national program established by the College Board.

Palm Springs High School offers a variety of AP courses to challenge and expose students to post-secondary education.

Advanced Placement (AP) classes are on a weighted grading scale from 0.0 to 5.0 due to course difficulty being at the college level.
