The goals of the AP Environmental Science course are to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world; to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and man-made; to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems; and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them. Environmental Science is interdisciplinary, embracing a wide variety of topics that include Ecology, Geology History, Sociology, Economics and Chemistry. Field experiences may include a trip to northern Wisconsin and/or one-day trips to local prairies, streams and forests. Students who successfully complete the course and AP examination may receive college credit and/or a higher placement in college.
Exam fees for Advanced Placement courses will be collected with school registration fees. Information about fee refunds for students opting out of the exam can be found here or with your school counselor.
