PreAP courses are designed to challenge motivated students and prepare them for success in college level course work in high school and in college. These courses typically move at a faster pace, are more academically challenging, and require more independent learning and homework than other courses. Profile of a Successful PreAP StudentProfesses interest in the subject selectedDevelops and maintains excellent study skills and habitsCarefully considers time commitments and balances academic load with family life or outside commitmentsAsks questions and participates in classPerseveres when faced with challenging materialAsks for assistance when neededPlans and works ahead on long-term projectsExiting a PreAP CourseA student may exit Pre-AP courses during the first six-weeks grading period or at the end of the semester (regardless of student performance) and must have teacher and parent approval. Students and parents should have the benefit of knowing the six-weeks grade before making an exit decision. Students should consider exiting a Pre-AP course if they cannot maintain at least a C average.*For more information on the PreAP program in Klein ISD please see section K on pages 3 and 4 of the Online Intermediate Student Handbook.
