Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) program is offered by the College Board to give high school students a chance to experience college-level course work before attending a college or university.  SIS offers 19 different AP courses for students 10-12.  These courses are taught by specially trained teachers who are experts in their respective fields.  Most AP courses have a prerequisite and require a teacher recommendation to enroll.  Many also require the completion of a summer assignment before the year starts.  SIS students who enroll in AP courses are required to sit for the AP exam in that subject in May.  Tests are scored on a 1-5 scale with many colleges and universities offering college credit for scores from 3-5.  For more information regarding the AP program, please visit their online brochure at https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/exploreap?affiliateId=apcentral&bannerId=exploreap1

Testing & AP Coordinator

Mr. Macklin has been working in education since 2000 and has been at Seoul International School since 2006.  He taught history for 10 years and joined the counseling team when he began his EdD. in Educational Leadership in 2010.  He believes that working in a field that you love is ideal because you never spend work days dreaming about vacation or vacation days dreading going back to work.  When not working he spends his time with his family, cooking, or playing golf.

Action guided by selfish interests is far inferior to action guided by wisdom.  Seek refuge in that wisdom.  Pitiable are those who have their eye on the result.   – Krishna      2:49 Bhagavad-Gita
