Are AP classes/courses in high school truly worth it? According to Denise Pope, a senior lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Education she said,

That, of course, depends.
To the claim that they help students in college, it is true that students who take AP courses are more likely to succeed in college. But when you look deeper into the research, it’s really hard to establish causation. It could just be that kids who take APs are kids who come from better high schools or high schools that better prepare them for college work, or they have better teachers or they’re naturally more motivated. Very few studies use methods where they take these factors into account.

With that in mind should parents enroll their children in these classes? It really depends on the teacher, the student’s interest and if they prepared well with backup plan in mind.
