Our world-class curriculum uses the College Board's Advanced Placement® curriculum as a foundation for our student's education in that subject matter. At the Metropolitan Education Group, we believe that there is more to a school than taking examinations with a pencil and paper. We do things differently by adding a worldly element not seen in most programs. We have our students apply the tools they've learned in the classroom to the real world, such as case studies and current events. Our goal is not just to have our students score a five on the advanced placement examination but also to be able to apply the knowledge they learned to analyze current events effectively and to be able to articulate their opinions and reasoning on those events well if they come up in conversation. Employers value this highly, and we want to ensure that our students have a solid foundation before venturing out into the real world.
We will reduce offerings for the 2022-2023 year to AP Economics and AP Statistics.
AP® COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES
Monday's 8 PM EST
AP® Computer Science Principles introduces students to the breadth of the field of computer science. In this course, students will learn to design and evaluate solutions and to apply computer science to solve problems through the development of algorithms and programs. They will incorporate abstraction into programs and use data to discover new knowledge. Students will also explain how computing innovations and computing systems, including the Internet, work, explore their potential impacts, and contribute to a computing culture that is collaborative and ethical.
Prerequisites: Algebra I
Tuesday's 8 PM EST
AP® Macroeconomics is a college-level course that introduces students to the principles that apply to an economic system as a whole. The course places particular emphasis on the study of national income and price-level determination. It also develops students’ familiarity with economic performance measures, the financial sector, stabilization policies, economic growth, and international economics. Students learn to use graphs, charts, and data to analyze, describe, and explain economic concepts.
AP® Microeconomics is a college-level course that introduces students to the principlesof economics that apply to the functions of individual economic decision-makers. The course also develops students’ familiarity with the operation of product and factor markets, distributions of income, market failure, and the role of government in promoting greater efficiency and equity in the economy. Students learn to use graphs, charts, and data to analyze, describe, and explain economic concepts.
Wednesday's 8 PM EST
The AP® Psychology course introduces students to the systematic and scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. While considering the psychologists and studies that have shaped the field, students explore and apply psychological theories, key concepts, and phenomena associated with such topics as the biological bases of behavior, sensation and perception, learning and cognition, motivation, developmental psychology, testing
and individual differences, treatments of psychological disorders, and social psychology. Throughout the course, students employ psychological research methods, including ethical considerations, as they use the scientific method, evaluate claims and evidence, and effectively communicate ideas.
Thursday's 8 PM EST
The AP® Statistics course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes evident in the content, skills, and assessment in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, probability and simulation, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding.
Prerequisites: Algebra I
AP® U.S. GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS
Friday's 8 PM EST
The AP® U.S. Government and Politics course provides a college-level, nonpartisan introduction to key political concepts, ideas, institutions, policies, interactions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the constitutional system and political culture of the United States. Students will study U.S. foundational documents, Supreme Court decisions, and other texts and visuals to gain an understanding of the relationships and interactions among political institutions, processes, and behavior. They will also engage in disciplinary practices that require them to read and interpret data, make comparisons and applications, and develop evidence-based arguments. In addition, they will complete a political science research or applied civics project.
The client is always right!
We are confident that if your child takes our course, they will do well on the official examination offered by the College Board™ in the spring. If for some reason they are not able to perform at that level, we will encourage them to take the same course the subsequent year free of charge. We firmly believe that this will enable them to show their full potential to colleges when they submit their application. If you still have any concerns, feel free to send us an email at email@example.com and we will make it right!
