AP & IB
Fullerton High is proud to offer both the AP and IB Programs.
Eighth grade students may apply for acceptance into Fullerton Union High School Honors/Pre-IB Program by submitting appropriate application materials and taking the Fullerton High School Honors Entrance Examination. This Entrance Exam is given in either January or February of every year. Students are evaluated based on their test scores and past academic performance.
The IB Diploma Program (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced program of education with final examinations that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. In many cases the student may also earn college credit depending on the student test score. The program has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities. Fullerton offers both the Full Diploma Program and the IB Certificate Program. We offer twelve IB courses for students to choose from.
The AP Program® has provided motivated high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in the Program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit while they are still in high school. Fullerton High offers eighteen AP courses for students to choose from.
