new course added:AP Seminar

We are proud to announce that we have added a brand NEW AP Course titled:  AP Seminar.

You may be asking yourself...what is AP Seminar?  Is it History? Science? English?  Math?  Art?  The answer is...a little bit of everything.

AP Seminar is an interdisciplinary course. This means that it does not fit under any content discipline. Rather, it is a course that focuses upon the necessary skills that we need to be successful in any and every content class.  For example, students will grow and master skills such as research, analyzing primary and secondary sources, presentation, collaboration, communication and many more.  These are all skills that students must learn in order to be successful at the university level.

Students in this course will investigate topics in a variety of subject areas, write research-based essays, and design and give presentations both individually and as part of a team.

As we move into the 2021/22 school year, we are looking to add AP Research.  The goal is for students to combine these 2 courses (Seminar & Research) and upon the successful completion, students will earn the prestigious AP CAPSTONE DIPLOMA.

To learn more about AP Seminar and/or AP Research and the Capstone Diploma, please contact the teacher, Stephanie Gonzalez,  or you can visit this link at the College Board website.

UPDATED: the College board release 2021 ap exam schedule

The College Board, in light of the current and ongoing pandemic, has rolled out the following AP Exam administration schedule for Spring, 2021 exams.  Please review the schedule below and if you have any questions you can ask your AP teachers or contact Mr. Greene. Please understand that El Camino or OUSD had no input on which exams would be virtual versus on-campus/in-person.  This schedule, again, was created by the College Board and has been rolled out nationwide. 

For exams that will be held on campus and in person, the location of these exams will be inside the ECHS Gymnasium, unless otherwise noted in parentheses after the exam.  Your teacher will inform you about the expectations and materials you will need for these exams.

For the virtual exams, a desktop or laptop with strong WiFi will be required.  Smartphones and tablets will NOT be able to access the exams.  If you have any questions or concerns about technology in your homes, please contact your AP teacher or Mr. Greene immediately.
