AP Class Changes
by Crystal Martinez '21
I interviewed Mr. Romero, our principal at Gallup High, and asked a couple questions about the AP classes and the tests that are taken. When asked if changes to AP classes in 2018 will be made he responded with, “Yes, more classes will be offered and more teachers being AP certified. College and career readiness points for students in AP. Students are allowed to take AP tests without AP classes, however with AP classes they will be better prepared for the test.”`
AP classes help students with preparation for college and even though taking the test is allowed without having taken AP classes, the classes do help with the test scores, points, plus preparation for college and careers. I asked two more questions about AP and how it's going so far; when asked if classes will be dropped if test scores are low, Romero went on to say, “No tests prepare students for college whether passed or not.” Raechelle Sandoval, Associate Editor of the Ambush! School & Community section, also helped me get more information on AP saying, “When we have more people in AP classes and taking the AP test we get more points towards our school grade.”
