AP courses are offered at 14 high school sites. As the Advanced Placement program in Fort Worth continues to expand, the academic coordinators work with their high schools’ Advanced Placement teachers to ensure that each course fits the framework of a college course. The AP Audit, conducted for the first time in 2007, has provided each Advanced Placement teacher in Fort Worth ISD the opportunity to review his/her current content by comparing what he/she teaches to college level requirements. By writing a professional syllabus according to College Board guidelines, students are assured they will receive instruction equal to a college survey course while still in a supportive high school environment.
Advanced Placement students are offered the annual opportunity to attend an AP/SAT Citywide Study Session at Texas Christian University. Students are instructed by Fort Worth ISD instructors, some who are or have been College Board readers or consultants. More than 20 course offerings include English, mathematics, science, social science and world language AP courses. Teachers are invited to attend these sessions, also. Our goal is to equitably provide support for students as well as a professional support base for teachers, who instruct these courses.
Fort Worth ISD offers ReadiStep to all 8th graders, PSAT to all 10th graders for AP Potential, and PSAT/NMSQT to all 11th graders to qualify for college scholarships.
Fort Worth ISD offers Summer PSAT/SAT Preparation Courses. Courses help students raise test scores, win scholarships, and gain entry to the college of their choice. Please see the links to the right for specific dates, times, contact information, and registration form.
