Recognizing the benefits of Advanced Placement coursework, NNPS encourages all students to prepare for and take at least one AP class. Studies show that AP courses move students towards a higher level of preparedness for success after high school. AP courses help improve writing skills and problem-solving techniques, develop good study habits for engaging rigorous coursework, and provide students with a greater level of depth and detail in subject areas.

AP courses are open to all Newport News high school students and the school division covers all exam fees. NNPS is also a leader in AP course offerings with 37 courses in 22 subject areas - nearly every AP course offered by the College Board.

Newport News Public Schools offers more AP courses than any other public school division or private school on the Peninsula.
