Last academic year we once more saw a significant number of students from Grades 11 and 12 participate in the Advanced Placement (AP) program. With the school offering a total of 11 courses, 43 students sat for 73 exams in May 2017. This was a 28% increase in the number of students taking AP courses when compared to the previous year. We now have AP courses offered in all core subjects as well as Art and Design and Computer Science which offered more diversity of subjects to our students.
The AP program provides students the opportunity to take university-level courses while in High School. Students who receive a score of 3, 4, or 5 on the CollegeBoard’s AP exams can receive advance university credit from thousands of colleges around the world. Consistent with our previous year’s results, our students continue to achieve strong results, with more students scoring above 3 than the average in Egypt and globally.

Of the subjects for which El Alsson students took exams, 60% of AP exams taken globally received a score of 3 or above and 71% of exams in Egypt received a score of 3 or above. As with every year of our AP program. El Alsson students topped both the Egyptian and global averages with 79% of our students receiving a score of 3 or above.
Congratulations to all our AP students on their excellent results. A special mention needs to be made to our AP Scholars below.
