Very Important! Students with Test AccommodationsStudents with documented disabilities (IEP or 504 plans) may be eligible for accommodations on AP Exams through CollegeBoard. In order to use accommodations on AP Exams, the student must request and be approved by College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). Please see your Counselor or Case Manager to file with CollegeBoard.  The Accommodations deadline is February 13, 2017.

Test Dates and Times: Morning tests start at 7:30AM.  Afternoon tests start at noon (students need to arrive by 11:45AM). Students will NOT be permitted to leave a test for any reason (including work, athletics or activities). It is the responsibility of the student to notify coaches, sponsors, or supervisors of their testing schedule.

Testing Locations: All Advanced Placement (AP) Exams for enrolled JHHS students will be administered at John Hersey High School.  For students not enrolled in AP courses offered at JHHS (German Language), these exams may be administered at an offsite location (Forest View Educational Center or another D214 High School) and JHHS will not provide transportation.

Parent Permission for Testing and Transportation: The parent/guardian acceptance on the AP Registration Form will be considered permission for your student to take Advanced Placement Exams and acknowledges that your student will provide his/her own transportation to the testing locations if needed. All Students taking AP Exams will be excused from classes for the remainder of the day.

Specific dates, times and locations of AP Exam Rosters will be provided through the Assessment Center and will be posted outside the A.R.C. doors on the new Assessment Center News Bulletin Board by April, 2017.  Please have your student also check their assigned seat number next to their name for each exam. Students need to check prior to the testing date to be sure they are registered for the correct exam.
