Advanced Placement (AP) classes are college level courses offered in the high school. Through these classes, students prepare to take the AP exam. These are generally given in the spring. The major benefit of taking an AP class and exam is that students have the opportunity to earn college credit by scoring at a level of 3 or higher*. Taking AP classes can give you a head start on college and save tuition money! The AP classes offered at Timberline High School are listed in the course catalog. Talk to your counselor if you have questions regarding these classes.
**Please check with the College or University being applied to in order to find out which AP classes/credits they will accept.
With credits earned in certain high school technical classes can also be awarded as college credit. Once you have received a "B" grade or better and met all the requirements, you will have a college transcript at the college. These credits can be used at a community college, technical school, or four-year university and are transferable by the college's transcript. Partnerships are established with Grays Harbor Community College, South Puget Sound Community College, and others.
