Advanced Placement

  • The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District offers an Advanced Placement Program at Bonney Lake High School, giving students the opportunity to take high-rigor, college-level courses where they can earn college credit or place out of lower-level college courses in high school. 

    Internationally recognized, the AP Program is the largest and most recognized rigorous academic program, which continues to grow at Bonney Lake High School with new classes being added each year.  Students passing more than 5 AP classes earn the distinction of AP Scholar. Benefits to taking an AP class:
    • Earn college credit or place out of lower-level college courses
    • Real college-level work while still in high school
    • Prepares students for the academic rigor of advanced high school classes and college
    • Challenges students with academic rigor and helps them learn time management and study skills – both needed to be successful in college
    • AP classes stand out in college admissions
    • AP classes are connected to, and prepare students for, post-high school career pathways
    • College Board-approved teachers with the skill set to support students and help them achieve high scores on AP tests
