Advanced Placement

Welcome Grizzlies and thank you for visiting our AP program page. At Mission Hills, our goal is that students pursue rigorous courses that prepare them for the challenges of the college and/or career of their choice. Our AP and honors program boasts nearly 20 Advanced Placement courses allowing students to challenge college-level courses during their educational career at Mission Hills. We offer AP courses across our departments including science, math, English, history/social science, foreign language, and visual & performing arts. We also offer numerous honors courses that help prepare students for the demands of AP classes. With almost 900 students in AP courses this year, we've built an AP program to be proud of, and your children are a great source of that pride.

Below you will find information regarding testing, deadlines, and events.
