Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered in English, mathematics, science, social studies and other selected areas. With AP, students are able to experience the rigors of college-level studies while still having the support of the high school environment. With qualifying AP exam scores, students may earn credit from a large majority of colleges and universities. It is the student’s responsibility to contact specific universities for their individual policies and score requirements for credit. The following website allows students to check credit transferability https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement/search-credit-policies

Transfer students to Krum ISD, may continue in previously enrolled AP courses if they maintain a grade of 80 or above. All high school students enrolled in an AP course will receive grades weighted on a 6.0 scale (GPA scale = Level 4).

NOTE: Students enrolled in an AP course will be required to take the Advanced Placement exam in May of the school year in which the student is enrolled. KISD will provide $40 towards the cost of each exam. Students will be responsible for the remaining cost for each exam. The total estimated cost is $90 per exam.

 
 
 

Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) courses at Krum High School are offered in the core areas: language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. These courses are designed to challenge students at a higher level, and prepare them to take Dual Credit and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.  

Transfer students to Krum ISD, may continue in previously enrolled Pre-AP courses if they maintain a grade of 80 or above. All high school students enrolled in a Pre AP course will receive grades weighted on a 5.0 scale (GPA scale = Level 2).

 
 
 

Exit Guidelines for Pre-AP/AP Courses

  • A student may request to exit the Pre-AP/AP course during the first three weeks of each semester.
  • A student that exits out of a Pre-AP/AP course will retain this grade in the new course. If a student exits with a grade below 70 in the original course, this will impact their UIL eligibility.
  • Students who take an AP class for which there is not an academic equivalent will be required to remain in the course until the end of the semester.
  • Exiting a Pre-AP/AP course prior to the end of a semester will result in loss of weighted credit for the course.
