AP Psychology

Brain Diagram

AP Psychology is a semester, whole credit class. The AP exam that will be given on May of 2020 and will consist of two parts: multiple choice and written response. The written response is two writing prompts and can be pulled from any subject matter covered in the course. Because these two writing prompts will make or break your AP test score, this is a writing heavy class. LOTS OF WRITING! This is a college level course and not for the weak-hearted. Come prepared to do a lot of writing!

Remind for AP Psychology is: text @hhsappsyc to 81010. This is the way I will get information to students and parents alike.
