Isabella Armstrong Talks AP with the Devil’s Advocate

There are 23 AP courses available for LHS students.

 At the beginning of May many juniors and seniors are preparing and taking their AP exams. 

The Devil’s Advocate interviewed 3 LHS seniors about their exams. 

Andrea Daly who took AP Language and AP World History her junior year and AP Literature and Composition this year, Minna Segura who took AP Literature and Composition, and Isabella Armstrong who took AP Literature and Composition and AP Computer Science.

These students explained how they prepared, what they liked and disliked, and how they thought they did. 

Students want to do well on these exams as they could count as college credit for certain classes when they enroll in college.
