Advanced Placement at Robbinsdale Area Schools

The Advanced Placement (AP) program at Robbinsdale Area Schools is one of the largest AP programs in the state of Minnesota, where students at the secondary level can choose from more than 20 audited AP courses. The number of course offerings - and the number of students taking these courses - is constantly growing. 

Robbinsdale Area Schools was named a National AP Achievement District for increasing the number of exams taken and increasing the number of passing scores on those exams - no easy feat!  Robbinsdale Area Schools was one of only 388 districts nationwide to be named to this list.
