Both ACS middle schools use SpringBoard™, a research-based, classroom-tested curricular program fully aligned to state standards that helps students develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in Pre-AP, AP, and on the SAT.
At AHS all students are placed in Pre-AP™ courses if they enroll in Biology, English 1, English II, Chorus, and Art. For the 2021-22 school year, all students who enroll in English II, Chorus, and Art will follow the Pre-AP curriculum in those courses. In Pre-AP, students are exposed to instructional practices and routines that help them develop important critical thinking skills. These skills are foundational for all individuals to be successful in high school, college, and life.
Asheboro High School was the first school in Randolph County to offer the AP Capstone™ program. AP Capstone is a College Board program that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. AP Capstone comprises two AP courses—AP Seminar and AP Research—and is designed to complement and enhance the discipline-specific study in other AP courses.
