During the 2017-18 school year, Ethan A. Chase became one of two middle schools in all of Riverside County to offer a college level course on campus known as Advanced Placement or AP. We offered AP Spanish and 17 students qualified to participate. These students were provided with a rigorous college level curriculum by our Spanish Teacher, Mrs. Spencer. At the end of the year, the students were assessed using the College Board AP Assessment which is commonly used in high schools that offer AP. All of the major universities such as the UC and Cal State systems recognize College Board and students who pass their test receive college credit. We are happy to report that of the 17 students, 15 passed the College Board AP Assessment and received college credit. Congratulations to Mrs. Spencer and all of her AP students for their hard work and commitment to their education.
