AP exam information and locations

All students should notify their teacher(s) if they are going to be absent from class because they are taking AP exams. Work with your teachers to stay caught up with your classes.

If you decide not to take a test, please email testingcoordinator@deerfield.edu. Cancelling ensures that a roomful of students are not waiting for you on test day.
