Pine Tree ISD Selected as APCapstone Program - Only School in East Texas

Pine Tree ISD has been selected as a AP Capstone Program. The AP Capstone Program will be implemented in the 2017-2018 school year.

AP Capstone is an advanced diploma program that debuted in 2014 with the first AP Capstone diplomas being awarded to 2015 graduates. To earn the diploma, students take two required AP classes – AP Seminar and AP Research – along with four more AP classes of their choosing. Students must earn a 3 or higher on each exam to be awarded the diploma.

AP Capstone is the College Board Program that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges.

Two additional courses will be added at Pine Tree HS – AP Research and AP Seminar. These courses are designed to complement and enhance the discipline-specific student in other AP courses.

Students graduating under this new program at Pine Tree High School will receive an AP Capstone Diploma.
