Important Testing Information....The final deadline to get your paid reservation for an Advanced Placement exam to Ms. Boggs is March 21, 2014. After this date, the only avenue to get an Advanced Placement exam would be if another student decides to not use his/her exam or to find a "surplus exam" available for purchase from another high school. Advanced Placement exams are the best indicator of college readiness and research shows that students who sit for the exam, regardless of score, perform better in college courses than students who choose not to sit for the exams. Add to this the potential tuition savings for passing scores, and it is the best investment one can make for his/her child's college future.
