AP US History is comparable to a first-year college survey course. This is a rigorous, reading-intensive course. It will cover US History in detail, beginning with colonization and ending near the end of the 19th century. Second semester will cover US History from late 1800s to 2001. This course will closely follow the College Board (AP) outline, but will also make connections between historical events and current trends and issues. This class will fulfill the sophomore level, US History requirement. Juniors and seniors who have taken a US History course as a sophomore may take this class. In addition to earning high school credit; all students will have the option of earning college credit by taking and earning a qualifying score on the Advanced Placement (AP) test. The AP test will be given in early May at PHS. This course meets the PHS US History graduation requirement.
