A newsletter for Walnut Hills High School

Special Edition - AP and Course Fair!

January 27, 2022

Students and parents,


We are excited to share that Friday, January 28, is the return of the in-person AP and Course Fair. The AP and Course Fair is a Walnut Hills High School tradition to showcase the amazing AP program and advanced course offerings available at Walnut Hills High School.


Students are encouraged to stop by the Fair during all lunches in the junior high gym where they will have the opportunity to speak with teachers and current students in the course.

The AP Program at Walnut Hills

Did you know that Walnut Hills High School offers 33 AP courses? The Advanced Placement program allows students to take college-level courses while still in high school. The experience of learning at this level is valuable in and of itself as excellent preparation for college. Through taking the AP exam at the culmination of the course, students can earn college credit and placement.


Walnut Hills prides itself on the strength of its AP program and the opportunities that it provides for all students. One of our specific goals is that all students are prepared to take at least one AP course before they graduate from Walnut Hills High School. Our curricula is designed so that students from grade 7 and up are building their skills to be successful in AP/advanced courses, and ultimately, successful in college.
