In the tenth and eleventh grades, however, all students must take at least one AP course. In the tenth grade, students are required to take AP Human Geography for their Social Studies course, and in the eleventh grade students must take either AP Language and Composition or a University of Washington at the High School level course for their Language Arts course. Several other AP courses are offered in the 11th and 12th grade, including AP U.S. History, AP Chemistry, and AP Calculus.
