AP Exams

Exams for students taking fall and year-long AP courses have now been ordered. Exam rosters were sent to all classes in order for students to verify their order status. Students can also check their exam order status by logging into their class(es) online. Any student who changes their order status at this point will incur a $40 cancellation/late registration fee. This $40 cancellation fee also applies to any student who registered for a state-funded STEM exam but fails to show up on exam day. We will order exams for students taking spring courses in February, and we will communicate registration instructions for these exams at the beginning of the spring semester. Any fall/year-long AP student who gets College Board approved testing accommodations must communicate these accommodations via email to Mrs. Poole by Friday, November 8 so we can make proper testing arrangements. You must include your SSD # in your email correspondence. 

Spring Semester Drop/Add

Spring semester schedules will be available to students via StudentVUE on Friday, November 1. An online drop/add period will follow and run from November 1 through Tuesday, November 5. The deadline for drop/add submissions is midnight on Tuesday, November 5. This includes all dual enrollment and online course requests. Students must have approval from their counselor before they submit and we accept either dual enrollment or online requests. Students may make requests online beginning on Friday, November 1. The request requires a parents electronic signature.

Harrison Graduation Rate

Congratulations to Hoya Nation! In case you haven’t heard, the Georgia Department of Education just released high school graduation rates. Harrison is ranked second out of the seventeen Cobb County School District (CCSD) high schools, and we have increased our graduation rate from last year’s 95.56% to this year’s graduation rate of 97.10%! Harrison is one of only four schools with a graduation rate above 96%. Our graduation rate is a testament to our culture at Harrison and the relationships that we have with our students. Our entire faculty and staff, as well as our parents, are all deeply committed to the well-being and academic success of every student. We are also thankful to our feeder schools who send us students who are well-prepared for the challenges of high school. Lots to celebrate at Hoya Nation!
