The Dalles High School

Educate - Motivate - Graduate

 
 
Advanced Placement Courses
 
 Advanced Placement Courses are taught by TDHS teachers at TDHS.  The AP Program sponsored by the College Board offers students the opportunity to challenge themselves with university level work while still in high school.  These courses develop study habits, sharpen problem solving techniques and improve writing skills, enabling students to enter college fully prepared to meet their professors’ expectations.  Students who do well on the annual AP examinations in May are able to gain both course placement beyond typical freshman college levels and earn credit toward college graduation based on their scores.  Students should contact their guidance counselor for further questions about AP courses.
 
 
 
Expanded Options Program
 

 Expanded Options covers the cost of tuition and books for eligible high school juniors and seniors to take classes at Columbia Gorge Community College while still in high school.  Students who pass receive dual credits high school and college - fully transferable to other colleges and universities.

 

The cost of tuition, textbooks and class fees are paid by the school district while students are responsible for the cost of transportation to and from the college.  The Dalles High School and Columbia Gorge Community College are continuing to develop courses that are attractive to high school juniors and seniors and easily accessible during their school day.
