AP Chemistry is an in-depth, fast-paced second-year chemistry course for advanced, science-oriented students. The course will provide students with a thorough grounding in chemical principles and quantitative reasoning, with an emphasis on inorganic chemistry. The workload is equivalent to a first-year college introductory chemistry course, including an intensive and necessary laboratory component. The laboratory program may require an extra time commitment, and students will be expected to maintain a laboratory notebook. Self-motivated, independent learners who have demonstrated strong abilities in previous science and math courses are encouraged to take this rigorous, but rewarding course. All students enrolled in this course are prepared for and expected to take the AP examination in May. Many (but not all) colleges will accept a score of 3 or higher on the AP exam for college credit, which may allow students to enroll in higher-level courses as a freshman or fulfill a lab science requirement.
