Advanced Placement

AP Testing May 1-12

Students are required to attend school before and after an AP test.  In order for your student’s absence during the AP test to be considered excused and marked accordingly (ACT) they must be present in the class following a morning AP exam or present in class before their afternoon AP exam. California’s compulsory education laws require children to attend school, with a limited number of specified exceptions. Under state law, a pupil who is tardy or absent for more than 30 minutes during the school day on three occasions in one school year, is considered truant. Any classes missed outside the testing time will be marked as a cut.

AP Exam sign-ups February 7-March 10, 2017 through Webstore


Cost: $125 per AP Exam (Fee for AP Seminar is $155)

FEB. 7 to MARCH 10, 2017


Due to space limitations priority is given to students enrolled in DVHS AP classes. Students not enrolled in an AP class may not be able to take the exam – see Ms. Vaiana for availability.  Foreign language tests have further restrictions and may not have allowances for students not currently enrolled in our AP Foreign Language classes. We are unable to accommodate non-DVHS students. Please be advised there will be no refunds.
