Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available at BFHS. AP courses prepare students to take the national Advanced Placement examination given in late spring of each school year. Students may be granted advanced placement status and/or college credit on the basis of how well they perform on these tests. Information regarding advanced placement courses and examinations is available from the counseling offices of each high school. Students are not required to take an advanced placement course to be eligible to take an advanced placement examination; however, students enrolled in AP courses are expected to take the AP exam.
