Approximately 35 AAHS AP biology and physics students and three staff members participated in study sessions on Sarturday, Dec 15 at Brentwood H S. The study was designed to prepare them for the future AP exams that will be administered in the 2018-2019 academic year.
Students were challenged on their thought processes, how best to prepare and approach the examination, quantification and time allocations when taking the AP exam.
As part of our enhanced communications plan in the Ambridge Area School District, communications with parents/guardians are distributed using our e-blast notification system (Tyler). Information ranging from upcoming important dates of interest, to emergency notices, are sent via this method. It is therefore imperative that parents/guardians verify that the District has the most up-to-date contact information to ensure communications are being received. Parents/guardians who wish to verify their information – or provide changes to information already on file – are encouraged to contact their child’s school or log into the Tyler portal to make the changes. Parents/guardians who choose to log into the portal to make the changes themselves should navigate to the section titled “Student Details.” There, they will be able to make any changes necessary to email addresses, phone numbers and other contact information and preferences.
