School Program

Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) courses are college-level courses offered in high school. AP courses reflect what is taught in introductory college courses. At the end of an AP course, students take AP Exams—standardized exams that measure how well students have mastered college-level course work. Students who do well on AP Exams can earn credit and/or placement into advanced courses in university. On average our success rates are over 80%.

At Westmount High School, we take AP one-step further. Advanced Placement at Westmount is a philosophy. Westmount is the only public school in Quebec to offer the AP program. The AP program has been at WHS since 2003 and our experience sets us apart. We strive to help students improve their performance, no matter the subject or level. We want to motivate students to rise to the challenge and test their limits. We want students to excel in their subject area and play to their strengths, while improving on their areas of difficulty.

WHS is also a testing center for the College Board. Students at WHS wishing to sign up for AP exams are asked to contact Mr Ruddick at
