• AP Computer Science Principles

    Prerequisite: Algebra I Regents with a full understanding of Functions and their behavior

    AP Computer Science Principles offers a multidisciplinary approach to teaching the underlying principles of computation. The course will introduce students to the creative aspects of programming, abstractions, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet, cybersecurity concerns, and computing impacts. AP Computer Science Principles also gives students the opportunity to use current technologies to create computational artifacts for both self-expression and problem-solving. Together, these aspects of the course make up a rigorous and rich curriculum that aims to broaden participation in computer science. All students are expected to take the AP exam in May. The AP exam fee must be assumed by the student. Please refer to the AP Exam Fee Schedule for more information
