At Home Digital AP Exams Begin / Refunds

Parents, the last set of digital AP exams is this week. We have Chemistry, Calculus, Biology, and Physics 1 & 2. Your student has received emails with instructions and will receive another this week. They MUST complete the setup in order to take the exam. That should be done ASAP. If it is not done by exam day, they will not be able to take the exam. Please email me (Bfarwell@sherwood.k12.or.us) with any questions. If your student is not taking the exam I am happy to issue a refund/credit. For seniors, I need to know early so the AP fee does not hold up their check out process.

Inspiring Moments: seeing our student athletes at Sherwood enjoy their High School experience.

Why I Joined: to help build a great High School experience and help our coaches achieve program success through funding.
