Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Ramapo High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2015 AP exams, students at Ramapo High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $91.00. Ramapo High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams.

Dear Families and Students:


The first weeks of school have gone by quickly but I hope everyone has had some time to enjoy the beautiful fall season. Good luck to everyone in completing their work in the first marking period. I would like to remind students to take advantage of the extra-help sessions with their teachers every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in preparation for quarterly tests. In addition, the library is open on these days until 4 PM.


Here is a summary of some of the great things happening at our school:
