Teaching and learning

Advanced Placement

Our AP and Pre-AP teachers are seasoned practitioners who have specialized training.

All AP and Pre-AP teachers teach both AP and mainstream courses so that all students, regardless of level, benefit from their expertise,

Aside from the opportunity to earn university credits, students who choose AP develop critical thinking, increased self-confidence, academic skills and perspectives that prepare them for post-secondary studies.

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program, administered by The College Board, is a cooperative educational endeavour between secondary schools and colleges and universities and provides students with the opportunity to take college-level courses while still in high school.

We offer AP programs in:

  • Math and Science (Calculus in AB, Environmental Science)
  • Social Sciences (Comparative Government and Politics, Psychology)
  • Languages (French Language and Culture, English Literature and Composition) and
  • Pre-AP Art (Studio Art).

WHS is also a testing center for the College Board.  Students at WHS wishing to sign up for AP exams are asked to contact Mr. Ruddick [rruddick@emsb.qc.ca].  External candidates are invited to download the AP Exam Registration Form for External Candidates 2020-21.

The AP Order Deadline is Monday, November 9th.
