We are proud of the academic changes occurring at Monmouth Regional High School and are excited to share the enhancements to our advanced placement opportunities for all students with you.
Preparations for the Class of 2023 begins in September. Collaboration with teachers, supervisors and administrators occurs to make sure that our curriculum remains on the cutting edge and that all students have access to them. College Board, the company behind the PSAT, SAT and AP, supports the movement that allows all students to have access to their AP offerings. As a school, Monmouth Regional supports this belief. To that end,offering entrance exams to gain access to our AP Academy curricula seemed outdated. We, too, want to support all students having access to the great things Monmouth Regional has to offer. In addition to dual enrollment courses with Kean, Rutgers and Seton Hall Universities, we currently offer twenty (20) AP courses, one of them the new AP Seminar, which is the first class in a duo of courses offering students a pathway to earn the AP Capstone Diploma. Monmouth Regional is one of only two schools in Monmouth County to offer this program!
College Board states; “deciding to take an AP course lets colleges and universities know that you have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment. When admissions officers see “AP” on your transcript, they know that what you experienced in a particular class has prepared you well for the challenges of college. Taking AP is a sign that you’re up for the most rigorous classes your high school has to offer.”
With that said, if your son or daughter is currently in our AP Academy, their program will remain the same until graduation. The class of 2022 will be the last graduating class from the Monmouth Regional AP Academy. If, however, your child was not placed in the AP Academy and shows an interest in a specific field of study, advanced placement courses are now an option. With a strong desire and work ethic, success is at their fingertips.
We are excited about these changes but understand that you may have several questions. Please visit our website or contact your child’s guidance counselor for clarification.
