Advanced Placement Courses
Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students.
Some American colleges and universities grant placement and courses credit to students who obtain high scores on the examinations.
AP gives students the chance to tackle college-level work while they’re still in high school and earn college credit and placement. Studying AP courses demonstrates a strong commitment to learning and self-development, as they are the next level past the PSATs and SATs.
NIS is one of the few mid-market schools in Dubai offering AP courses which include: Chemistry, Physics, Calculus, Psychology, Biology, American Literature and Composition, and American Language and Composition.
Advanced Placement Results for the Academic Year 2019 – 2020
The NIS students have achieved the highest Advanced Placement results in the history of the school this past May in their external AP exams. In our AP Mathematics, Science and English exams, we had 85% of our students meet or exceed National Benchmarks. This is the first year that the exams were taken online and our students excelled at this challenge. AP exams count towards university and college credit. We will continue to offer carefully targeted courses for selected students while studying at NIS.
