Talk to a teacher from the World Languages Department about the Seal of Biliteracy.
Due to the snow days, the AP Exam Registration deadline has been extended until Friday, Feb. 8th. Students should register and pay online through our AEHS Total Registration. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. The expectation at Albert Einstein High School is that all students will take AP exams for the AP classes in which they are enrolled. At AEHS, we are committed to ensuring that financial hardship does not create a barrier in access to AP exams. Students eligible for a fee waiver pay $20 per exam with submission of the AP/IB Exam Fee Waiver Request Form. We also encourage families to apply for school assistance if you are experiencing financial hardship, but do not qualify for a fee waiver. Please see the AP exam registration packet for more registration information and directions on how to apply for a fee waiver or school assistance. There are extra packets on the door of the AP & IB Office, room 172.
